How do I add an A-record (IPv4)?

To add an A-Record, please follow these steps:

  1. In your Octopoly account, go to DOMAIN NAMES and ACTIVE.
  2. Hover over the domain name and click MANAGE on the right.
  3. Click MANAGE ZONE, in the Nameserver section on the left.
  4. Click on NEW RECORD in the panel below and select under Type A (IPv4 Address).
  5. Enter the host or sub domain into the Host field. In most cases it is enough to use “@”, which represents the root domain.
  6. Enter the IP address (IPv4) in the IPV4 field.
  7. You can leave the Dynamic DNS and TTL value as they are.
  8. SUBMIT the record and click on SAVE ZONE.

Please note that DNS changes take up to 24 hours to be propagated throughout the Internet.
