Domain redirection to IP

Hello, registered a domain name here at dreamhost. Now I want to redirect it to the IP of one of my servers.
Tried the redirect function of the ‘Manage Domains’, which does redirect, but with ‘http://111.222.333.444/’ rather than ‘http://www.mydomain.com/’.

Any ideas?

I think you want to host your domain name in your local machine. You can still use your registered domain. To achieve that, you can modify your A record via DH panel --> Domains --> Manage Domains --> DNS. Add an A record there and point it to your IP address.

You must have a hosting plan to have the DNS access.

Thanks Patrick, I did try that, but I’m not sure that it works. What happens when a site has 2 A records?

As you would know the DreamHost DNS entries are non-editable, therefore all I can do is add an additional A record. Does this one over-ride the previous?

OK, I’ve got the answer, maybe.

Might have had to wait for it to propagate as it now works just fine.

Yes, you’ll need to give some time to any DNS changes.

I’m glad it works for you now.
