DNS Management – Access your DNS Management Panel

  1. Log in to your Domain Registrar Panel.

  2. Select your target domain and visit the DNS management section.

DNS Management – Create an A Record

Create a new A record using the following information:

Point the following A Record if you want to point a root domain (yourdomain.com) to the IP address: 139.162.197.136


Type: A
Host/Name: @
Value/Target: 139.162.197.136


TTL: Automatic/Default or select of your choice

Make sure to save all the changes. Once you have added or updated the DNS records, it may take up to 48 hours for your changes to be effective across the internet.
