How to Update A Records - DNS Management

What is an A Record?

An A Record assigns an address for your domain to a specific IP (www to 12.345.678.90). Domain owners typically use it to control which specific servers host a particular function associated with their online presence (website, email, etc). Many other DNS records require an associated A Record in order to function properly. The usual A records to update when changing the IP address are the '@' and 'www' A records.
