Configuring DNS


If your domain is hosted with a host other than Cobweb then please add the following A records to your DNS or provide them to your domain host.


You will need to refer to the FTP URL from FTP Configuration you took note of earlier.


If your FTP URL is ftp://217.28.135.98

If your FTP URL is ftp://217.28.135.30

yourdomain.com

217.28.135.98

yourdomain.com

217.28.135.30

www.yourdomain.com

217.28.135.98

www.yourdomain.com

217.28.135.30

ftp.yourdomain.com

217.28.135.98

ftp.yourdomain.com

217.28.135.30


This concludes the setup of your FTP Site. Once the website is loaded into the FTP Site and the A records are on the domain then your website will be visible on the internet.
