How can I set up an A (address) record for my domain?

Please note that you can only set up A record for the domain if it’s using our default nameservers.

In order to set up an A (address) record for your domain please perform the following actions:

  • Sign in to your Namecheap account
  • Mouse over your Namecheap username on the black bar at the top of the page
  • Click Manage Domains and click on the domain you wish to set the A (address) record for
  • Click on All Host Records on the left (missing All Host Records option?)
  • Enter an IP address for both WWW and @ fields and choose the record type as A (Address).

  • If you wish to set an A record for your subdomain, you would need to make the changes under SUB-DOMAIN SETTINGS

Normally the changes should take effect within minutes.
