cname record setup


S

shelly

I currently have a domain name setup in DNS as follows:

;
; Database file wheatlandcu.com.dns for wheatlandcu.com
zone.
; Zone version: 16
;

@ IN SOA
agweb2.alphabetgraphics.com. netadmin. (
16 ; serial
number
10800 ; refresh
3600 ; retry
86400 ; expire
3600 ) ; minimum TTL

;
; Zone NS records
;

@ NS
agweb2.alphabetgraphics.com.
@ NS
agweb3.alphabetgraphics.com.
agweb3.alphabetgraphics.com. A 63.71.210.3

;
; Zone records
;

@ A 208.238.127.11
@ MX 10 mail.ag-is.com.
mail A 63.71.210.99
www A 208.238.127.11

I am now being asked to delete the A record and create a
CNAME record. Here's the request.

The change we'll need you to make with whomever is
hosting your domain name, is to change the current A
record to a C-name record.

A record = "208.238.127.11" -----> C-Name Record
= "ip1.libertyonline.net"


Is this possible to do this in MS DNS?

Thanks!

Yes it is create an alias record which is a CNAME.
just guessing whoever is hosting your website uses CNAMES so if they change
the web server IP you they only need to change the one record to resolve a
different IP.
you can create both the www "A" to a CNAME and the Blank "A" record to a
CNAME

Yes. First, delete the www host record. Then create a CNAME or alias record named "www" and point it to
"ip1.libertyonline.net".

Thank you,
