I have a domain at ionos (https://hunaa-k.com) pointing on an old wordpress website. I want that this domain point now on the website id : 2b0f5498-b396-4cee-9259-5f50d889915f at netlify
On Ionos, I have mails boxes that I want to keep on ionos after the new pointing.
I read on the doc that in this config, it’s better to use www.hunaa-k.com instead of only hunaa-k.com . Ok for us no problem.
If the website is down during 1 day or 2, not problem. We just need the website live for sunday 23.
That I can translate by :
"A CNAME record can only be defined for a sub domain. To create an alias of your main domain, go to Redirection page : "
here the screenshot of the Redirection page translated in english :
To point the domain to Netlify the following two DNS record should be created with your current DNS service. To be clear, you do not need to use Netlify DNS. You can just create the records below and continue to use your existing DNS service:
hunaa-k.com. 1800 IN A 184.108.40.206
www.hunaa-k.com. 1800 IN CNAME hunaa.netlify.app.
Please also delete these two A records:
hunaa-k.com. 3600 IN A 220.127.116.11
www.hunaa-k.com. 3600 IN A 18.104.22.168
The 22.214.171.124 IP address is not controlled by Netlify so if you do not delete them, it will cause problems with the web hosting.
There is one more step (and it is already complete). You must also add the domains above to the sites custom domain setting page. This is, again, already completed and this can be confirmed here:
Once the DNS records above exist (and the A records are deleted), you can provision the SSL certificate automatically by clicking the “Verify DNS configuration” button on the bottom of the custom domain settings page (the link just above).
If you create the DNS records first and click the button after, the site should be working in within one hour. I say “one hour” because the time to live (TTL) values in the current A records are 3600 seconds (which is one hour). It is the TTL of the previous, not the current DNS record, that controls the time the records are cached.
If you have any follow-up questions, let’s talk about it over in the Netlify Support Forums. In return for support for our Starter plan customers, we ask that this is performed in a public setting so other Netlify developers can benefit from our discussion. Remember – no question goes unanswered.
Our staff, trusted Netlify Pilots and other developers will be on-hand to help.
