Hi, @chidimo. Yes, an A record is used in most cases (unless your DNS service supports the special record type).
The IP address to use is in the section of the docs linked to in my post above. In that documentation, it is the section labeled “Configure an apex domain”, which I have quoted below:
If your DNS provider supports one of these special record types (recommended), find and follow their instructions to point the apex domain directly to your Netlify subdomain, such as
If your DNS provider does not support CNAME-style resolution for apex domains , you must configure your domain with a single-server A record:
- Find your DNS provider’s DNS record settings for your apex domain, such as
- Add an A record . Depending on your provider, leave the host field empty or enter
- Point the record to Netlify’s load balancer IP address:
- Save your settings. It may take a full day for the settings to propagate across the global Domain Name System.
