Re: DNS Forwarding not working

Make sure to delete the DNS records that point to your old provider (A or CNAME records for host www), and that you have a CNAME record for Host www to point to @.

CNAME

Host: www

Points to: @

Re: DNS Forwarding not working

Well that got it working but none of the links work in navigation on the site. What could be causing that?

Edit: i turned off masking and now it links me to the new sites web address but what i want is the anglicanchurchtheentrance.info to be displayed for all pages - how would i do this?

Re: DNS Forwarding not working

Add the domain in your website account, turn off forwarding, and point the domain with DNS records.

A record -

Host: @

Points to: (the IP address for your website)

 

CNAME record-

Host: www

Points to: @
