Greetings and welcome to the domain setup article. Let's get started.
In 2020, I am suggesting using Google domains portal to purchase your domain. once complete you will have access to a menu that looks like this:
Once there, go back to the menu and click DNS.
Next, navigate or scroll down the page to the Custom resource records and add an A record using IP address 188.8.131.52 as shown in the image below.
Next, is the CNAME record which will require a change to the name field, record type and data entry. Make sure to change the text 'yourdomain' and 'yourdomainending' with your actual domain and the correct ending i.e. JasonThigpen.com
