So, I believe I have done all the possible ways that should link my domain name from name.com, (golfcentralohio.com) and to the IP address for Yola.com. I am still getting the the "Your domain is not pointed correctly". Can anyone help me? I am desperate. I have a host from a different website as well (hostgator.com). Do I need to do anything with the settings on my host site as well?

Cheers,
Patrick

Hi Patrick,

Could you let me know when you changed your A records? It can take up to 48 hours for the change to update across the internet.

I have looked up your domain's A records, and I see that you have one A record pointing to Yola and the other is not pointed. Your "www" A record is pointed correctly.

You need to ensure that you have two A records:

- Some domain registrars require one A record with the hostname "@" and one with the hostname "www".
- Other domain registrars allow you to create one hostname called "domain.com" and another "www" (replace "domain" with your own address).
- Both should point to our IP address: 184.72.229.176.

For more information on pointing your domain to Yola, please take a look at our tutorial: Publish to a domain you already own.

With regards to your site at HostGator, is there anything that you would like to do with this site? If you only want to point golfcentralohio.com to your site at Yola, then nothing needs to be changed at HostGator.

I hope this helps! If you have any further questions please let us know.

Thanks,
Jackie

I changed it around a bit to see if it works. The previous ones I did them on January 26th so something is obviously wrong.

Now what I did was in the ":Record Host", I put golfcentralohio.com, and the other one which you said was pointing was the "www". Now do I even need the Hostgator since I read that Yola has free hosting or am I wrong?

And of course I pointed the IP address:184.72.229.176

Let me know if I am mistaken in any of these statements above please. I really appreciate your help! I am so eager to get this running soon!

Cheers.

Hi Patrick,

That must have done the trick! I can see that both A records are now pointing to 184.72.229.176.

Please let me know if you experience any problems publishing your site. This tutorial will provide you with the steps on how to do it: Assigning domains and creating a primary domain.

Thanks!
