DNS setting to new host

Hi,

I have created a server with a static IP and my .co.uk domain is currently hosted by plusnet.

Could some one state what the settings need to be in the DNS as there is no real example.

I was thinking this


left field                 type                       Pri                           Right field

www.abc.co.uk      A                                                           123.123.123.101

 

I don't want it to handle any of my email just host the webite.

 

Thanks Matt

Re: DNS setting to new host

Have you changed the Domain Hosting setting to "Other" so you can add your own DNS settings?

With that changed I think you need the following DNS settings

Left field          Type          Right field
abc.co.uk.          A             123.123.123.101
www                 CNAME         abc.co.uk.

Note that you need full stops after the fully qualified domain names in the left and right fields but *not* after the www,

This will mean that HTTP requests to both abc.co.uk and www.abc.co.uk are directed to your static IP.
