First, you will have to find out where your DNS is hosted, simply go to http://who.is and type your domain name to find out.
Here's a sample:
You can see that the registrar for prontomarketing.com is GoDaddy, and is using the Name Servers -- domaincontrol.com for GoDaddy. These are considered the default Name Servers for GoDaddy. Other popular default Name Servers include worldnic.com for Network Solutions and enom.com for Namecheap.
If you have different ones then you might have to check in with your current hosting/email provider first, some hosts like DreamHost, 1and1, and StartLogic provide their own DNS management system and you may have to do the editing through the related providers.
We have several guides for popular DNS management system:
- Guide for GoDaddy
- Guide for Network Solutions
- Guide for CloudFlare
- Guide for Domain.com
- Guide for Namecheap
For other providers, the methods are similar, but you may have to go through different interfaces to navigate to the DNS manager, Google has published some general guides for several other popular DNS managers.
Once you have located the DNS manager for the domain you are going to point to us, please do the following:
- Under the section "A record or A Host" add a '@' with the IP 188.8.131.52 to the blank field.
Make sure there are no other records for '@' or blank in CNAME or A sections, or there will be a DNS conflict.
- Under the "CNAME record" section add the designated record to the blank space beside WWW. Your designated record usually has the format yourwebsite.client.bypronto.com depending on which server you are on.
This information should be provided by the project manager at Pronto.
Make sure there are no other records for 'www' in CNAME or A sections, or there will be a DNS conflict.
