in this video I'm going to show you how to change the a record in your and the main name so what we're doing here is we're going to you've got a domain name that you own ie technology for coaches comm is my domain name and you'll be changing the a record because you've likely just got a new website and you need to point your domain name to the new website this example is GoDaddy and if you need help in any other domains let us know at technology coaches and we'll record you a video specifically for yours or send you instructions on the hell – so in GoDaddy what we do is we go to the old products so this is me logged in on my GoDaddy so you log in on your GoDaddy go to the products go to domains and then over here is the main management so what we do is click on domain management the page loads and what we have here is then a list of domains ok so let's just assume that I'm looking to change the leverage guy ok so what I do is I click on leverage guy and up comes the details what we're next going to do is click on the DNS zone file here and up comes the details here ok what we can see here and we've got a bud and edit button here but if you're ever looking for your domain details to change whether it's the a record here's the a record here or whether you need to do any cnames which is here or if you ever change your email probably to Google or something similar that I'd recommend then this is your MX records here MX so these this is the place you would come to in your doing a sound file to make any changes in future so we'll just click Edit and up comes this page and now we have this page here and it says premium that we don't need to worry about this up here so now what we want to do here the a record if you already have an a record in here then there will be likely they'll be the @ sign in the host and then they'll be an IP address and the IP address is a very specific address that points to a very specific server somewhere in the world and that's where your website has been hosted so you will likely have a new IP address so all you need to do is edit it and put the details in if you're like this one here and you don't have anything we'll do quick add I click on quick add I'll put the @ sign in okay the @ sign just references that we're going back to leverage guy okay and then we put in the IP address in here so in this instance I'll just make one up one 50.50 dot one to 3.125 dot 25 because it's full sets of numbers I click on save you're about to save it yep and it says here usually take an hour it may take up to 48 hours it tells you that on the screen you click OK and now that's going to make that change and that now if you type in leverage guide com it's going to try and point it to this address which I've just made up so it's not going to work but that's now in place as an a record the other thing you're going to once see it's already in GoDaddy they do it well here with dub dub dub here point to the main one okay points to that leverage guy dr. dub okay and so if you wanted to change it I could just come back here click on this it opens up again I can make the changes click Save and I'm done if you have a live website when you make this change it's going to point to the new one that's the point where you switch over from one website to another okay for information so when you make this change it will then within an hour you've made the change and you're done if you have any questions at all just come back to us through the support channels look forward to helping bye for now .
