18 May How to create an A Record at JustHost.
Fleeing #Justhost , California – Scammed – I hosted with them for a year, then decided that I wasn’t thrilled with what I was getting for the price. So I just renewed my domain, but not my hosting agreement. Guess what? Paying $20 for a domain renewal + DNS privacy doesn’t allow you to actually USE your domain, because they won’t give you domain name service if you’re not hosting with them. If you want to USE it, you either have to pay a third party to do name service for you ($30/yr., and a PITA), or else you have to pay to transfer it to a different registrar, i.e. pay to leave. I feel scammed, having been sold something which cannot be used as customers would expect to use it. I can’t recommend them.
This video shows you how to easily create an A Record in your Justhost control panel. A Records can be used to direct certain parts of your site, such as a subdomain, to other places. It’s helpful if your blog is hosted at another location, such as WordPress. It’s also helpful if you have a store at another location and you want traffic directed there.
