Changing the DNS


#1

I purchased my domain www.jocelynranne.com/hosting from dreamhost. However, I have built my website on Weebly.com.

I need to know how point my domain to a new IP #. I think this is done by going into my DNS area and changing my domain’s A-Records.

There is an existing website design on www.jocelynranne.com, I am replacing it with my Weebly.com design. There is an existing A record. Is it okay to change it? Will I screw anything up with my hosting?

So, just to be clear, before I tell you how to do it…

You purchased jocelynranne.com on DreamHost and have a hosting packge on DH

You want anyone who visits www.jocelynranne.com to be sent to your site design and hosted on weebly.com?

You understand exactly. How would you recommend proceeding?
Thank you.

You need to do two things: First navigate to manage domains in the panel and “remove hosting”. This step removes the current site and the DNS entries for it. Second, once that has been done, you will be able to enter your custom A records for weebly.com by clicking the “DNS” link for the domain from the manage domains page.
