  • How to create an A Record on GoDaddy

 

This is a brief guide on editing/creating DNS records in your GoDaddy account for pointing the GoDaddy registered domain(s) to the application(s) hosted on your Cloudways server.

Part A (Settings at Cloudways)

We assume that you already have added the domain(s) to your web application(s) on your server at Cloudways. If not, then visit this KB and complete Part A section before proceeding further.  

Part B (Settings at GoDaddy)

Step 1: Choose Domain

Log into your GoDaddy account, Go to Domains, choose the domain that you want to direct to your new Cloudways application, and then click on Manage DNS.

  • Choose the name for the subdomain that you want to point to your Cloudways application (in this example www).
  • As record type choose A (Host).
  • Under Host, type www
  • As a value, enter the IP address of your server that you noted earlier. In this example, it is 188.166.XXX.31

  • Click Save to apply the settings.
