How to configure DNS for HostAlamo.com

Hostalamo recommends that you retain your default name servers at your domain provider. A domain provider is the registrar where your domain is registered.  As an example if you registrar is godaddy.com then here are steps you need to take to configure your domain to HostAlamo.com

Remember there are two 'A' records you need to change to point correctly to hostalamo server: The first one is an "A' record that you need to change for  IPv4 and the second is an "AAAA' record that you need to change or add to IP6. 

A- Record: 192.158.225.187    
AAAA Record: 2605:6c80:1:19::2

Here is how GoDaddy recommends you change your 'A' record/ 

    1. Log in to your GoDaddy account and open your product. (Need help opening your product?)
    2. From the Domain Manager, select your domain name from the list to access the Domain Settings page.
    3. Scroll down to the Additional Settings section and select Manage DNS.
      click manage dns
    4. On the DNS Management page, at the bottom of the Records section, click Add.
    5. Select A from the Type drop-down menu.
    6. Complete the required fields:

For other registrars basically the concept is the same. You would need to log into your REGISTRAR domain account and look for DNS and then follow the steps identified above. Basically you are adding two records to point your domain to our server. The first one is AN 'A' record IPv4 with IP address 192.158.225.187 and the second one should be an "AAAA' record IP6 with IP address 2605:6c80:1:19::2

 Note: All DNS changes can take 24 - 48 hours to fully update across global networks.
