Pointing Domain Name to my InMotion account

  • Answered
hi, i'd like to know if its ok to do A record or cname pointing to my inmotion hosting account (instead of changing nameservers) for a website? Thanks in advance, Jason
Hello Jason, Thank you for your question. Yes, you can point to InMotion Hosting using an A record or cname; without pointing to our nameservers. Keep in mind in this case, all DNS modifications must be made where your nameservers are pointed (your DNS host). You will want to point your A record to your shared IP address. Pointing to us via cname will differ based on what you are trying to accomplish. Be sure to allow time for propagation to complete any time you make a DNS modification. If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below. Thank you, John-Paul
