I did a search to see if anyone has had similar problems, and although I found some dialogue regarding the situation, I cannot seem to find a straight answer...
In order to have my tumblr blog (kpfoster.tumblr.com) redirect to my domain (kpfoster.com); Tumblr's instructions are to change the A record to 126.96.36.199.
Here is what I've entered into Tumblr:
Then, I changed my A record to 188.8.131.52
So far so good, tumblr recognizes the A record change:
But now, when I go to kpfoster.com, it just shows me a directory tree, not kpfoster.tumblr.com
The A-Record was changed about 14 days ago, so it has had ample time to propogate/change/etc.
I also tried to edit the .htaccess file in the site folder to redirect to kpfoster.tumblr.com, but I'm not looking for a redirect... and I get loop errors.
Any ideas what I am doing wrong? any suggestions?
Many thanks in advance...
EDIT: Not sure why the IMG tags aren't working, changed descriptions into links. [hr]
Found my answer.
For those who need to know, do what I did per above, but:
- Set your domain to be DNS only. Delete the fully hosted option.
- Add another A record with Name: WWW Type: A Value: 184.108.40.206 - This adds the A record for both www. and just domain.com
Works like a charm! Thanks!
