Add an A record
Add an A record to your DNS zone file in your GoDaddy account. An A record connects your domain name to an IP address and lets web browsers find your website. You can use an A record to point to your hosting account or to create a subdomain.
You can watch a short animation of this task farther down the page.

- Under Type, select A.
- Enter the details for your A record:
- Host: The host name the A record links to. Type @ to point directly to your domain name.
- Points to: The IP address you are setting as the destination for the host.
- TTL: How long the server should cache information. The default setting is 1 hour.
