Domain registered w/ Yahoo but hosted by DreamHost


#1
  1. When I edit DNS settings… yahoo asks for A NAME… since my server is “venice.dreamhost.com” then i should enter that IP for A Name right?

  2. and my mail server is murdock so I should enter murdock.dreamhost.com for mx recards right?

Usually when you have a domain registered with another registar and you are hosting it here you want to specify the Dreamhost nameservers. They are:
NS1.DREAMHOST.COM
NS2.DREAMHOST.COM
NS3.DREAMHOST.COM

That should take care of it.

but if i don’t enter an “a name” or “mx record” it says it uses yahoo ip address… and so when i enter my domain name… it goes to yahoo parked pages… ack…

and i’ve already entered in dreamhost’s dns servers already…
