Re: adding my domain to my website

@Adge47  It looks like you have been able to sort this out but the problem was coming from the record for @ and www pointing to different providers.  Both would need to point to the host for your website.

 

Type: A

Host/name: @

Points to/value: [hosting IP address]

 

Then there can be another A record like above for host www, or a CNAME can be used to like below that says use the same IP address as the bare domain.

 

Type: CNAME

Host/name: www

Points to/value: @
