Learn how to change your domain’s “A” records.
Below is a short video guide and checklist showing you how to change your domain’s “A” record for general purposes and for your Baby Blue Digital website.
What is an “A” record?
An A record maps a domain to the physical IP address of the computer hosting that domain. Internet traffic uses the A record to find the computer hosting your domain’s DNS settings. The value of an A record is always an IP address, and multiple A records can be configured for one domain name. Baby Blue Digital will provide you with the correct IP Address for you to point your domain to.

Make sure you cover these items:
- Ensure you only have one “A” record pointing to an IP Address for your website.
