Hi Luke,

I'm sorry to hear you are having this problem. Are you trying to set up an A Record? Please check that you are trying to modify your A Record. Can you also let us know who your domain name registrar is. If you don't want to disclose that information here in a public forum feel free to email support@yola.com and we can work with your from there.

Hello again
I am unsure as to I am setting up an A record or not, I am using the website www.webcity.com.au for my domain and web host.
If you have any help it would be much apreciated.
thanks

Well if it's anything like GoDaddy.....when you create the A record, you have to put for the "Host" is the @ symbol and then the "points to" is 208.75.208.172 (which is the ip address)

Hello taya

For setting up your DNS information with crazy domains, please have a look at their support page. Click on the "Set up your DNS hosting" link.

Yola doesn't provide a host name. Once you have logged into your crazy domains account, please create two A records, one for www and one for @, to point to our IP address 184.72.229.176 as described in our tutorial Publish to a domain you already own.
