Pointing Porkbun A Records to Pressable

Log into your Porkbun account and navigate to the Domain Management page. To the right of your domain, click on the “Details” button.

Click the “edit” button beneath “DNS Records” to set your custom A records. That will open a popup window:

You will want to create four A records. Two will be blank on the “host” field, and two will have “www” in the host field.

  • In the “host” field, leave the entry blank. In the “answer” field, enter one of the provided IPs for your site. For example, 199.16.172.23. Press the “Add” button.
  • Create a duplicate record with the second provided IP address.
  • Create a third A record, but this time enter “www” into the host field, and one of our IPs in the answer field.
  • Create a duplicate record for www with the other IP address.
