Do It Yourself DNS

Please log in at your registrar, GoDaddy, and change the records as follows for your primary domain:

  - A record @ points to 35.224.160.69
  - CNAME record www points to frontend-lb.smartetailing.net

Additional Steps- Primary/Main Domain Name:

  • On the Home screen, find your domain and click the DNS button.
  • Locate the A record for @ and click the edit pencil icon.
  • Change the IP address to 35.224.160.69
    • Recommended: Edit the TTL value to read 600. This will shorten the time required for the changes to propagate on the Internet.
  • Edit the CNAME record for www to point to frontend-lb.smartetailing.net1555719465993
