To point an A record, you may do so via the Advanced DNS Zone editor or contacting support via chat or ticket. Once it is changed, it can take up to 24 hours for the changes to propagate.

I also noticed that the domain you are referring to,, is not registered. You may also follow these instructions to point your domain via AMP:

Hello Clement,

The A record for has been changed as per your request. If this is incorrect, then please contact the live support team, verify with your last 4 digits of the credit card on the account or the AMP password, and they can change it for you immediately. I noticed that you stated, but your account only includes -the change was made to, so please verify that this okay. Part of the issue is that your name servers were also incorrect. You had initally been set to and The correct name servers are and This has been corrected. These changes may require up to 24 hours of propagation time. The email settings for the domain still point to our server.

By the way, you can make the change yourself using the Advanced DNS Editor in the cPanel. Please let us know you if you require any further assistance.
