I use ZoneEdit DDNS services for my domain. How should I configure ZoneEdit to direct people to my new Hub web page?

Hello Mark_Trimmer,

In order to point to Hub servers from your current DNS provider you will want to create an A record that points to your hosting accounts server IP address.

To find the IP address of your server, simply log into the cpanel and check under the stats on the left hand sidebar. You may need to click 'Expand Stats' to see them all. Your IP is listed as "Shared IP Address".

Set that IP address as the A record for your domain at ZoneEdit. This will allow your domain to point to our servers while all other records (email, etc) stay pointing as they are. Please allow up to 4-24 hours for the change to take place.

I hope this answers your question. If you have any more questions or information specific to the issue please leave a comment below so we can further assist you.

Best Regards,
Scott M
