Completing this process is slightly different for each provider, but not difficult. In general, here are the steps:
i) Modify the default A record for your host name (yoururl.com
). The A record should be set to the IP addresses listed in your Portfolio Settings.
ii) Modify the A record for your "www" subdomain (www.yoururl.com
). This A record should also be set to the IP addresses listed in your Portfolio Settings
Note: A Record stands for "Address Record." This is a type of DNS record that can be used to point your domain name to a static IP address.
Adobe Portfolio provides you with two IP addresses in your website settings (the two blurred areas of my screen grab. The second IP address is an alternate, and not all DNS providers support two. In my case, hover.com supports both IP’s.
