An A or address record is a DNS record that can be used to point your domain name and host names to a static IP address. You can add or update your A records from the Domains page of your Wix account.

 

To add or update an A record: Sign in to your Wix account > from the top menu, hover over Subscriptions > click Domains > under My Domains, next to the relevant domain, click Manage.

Under Domain Summary, select the Advanced tab > next to DNS Records, click Manage > next to A (Host), click Add a new A record to add or click the pencil icon to edit > enter the information in the pop-up window > click Save.

 

Note: If your domain is connected to your Wix site via Pointing, your domain host is in control of your A records.

    Hi,

    If you are connected via Nameservers - Please ask your email hosting company what records need to be added and update them in the Domain Manager within your Wix account.  In the Domain Manager, you can add MX records, A records, CNAME records and TXT records. For more info about how to update these records, follow this link: http://support.wix.com/index.php/Domain_Management/Managing_Your_Domain_Records
