    HI, is it possible to create an A Record manually, i have several sites that are offline, i have contacted namecheap to check the domain name is active and they say that is the A Record that is is incorrect on the hosting server end. I am new to this, i used to have a firm to do this for me, but i believe they are no longer giving support as they are closing down.

    I assume that you have an incorrect DNS setting. You can check whether your DNS is correct in this site intodns.com .

    The below URL will help you with editing the DNS records.

    Hello :)

    You first need to login to your domain registrar control panel and ensure your domain name is using the correct name servers provided by your hosting provider. Then, from cPanel (If you do not have access to WHM), you can modify or create an "A" record via the Simple DNS Zone Editor:

    Thank you.
