Most domain name providers will allow you to modify these data yourself. If not, you can pass them on to your provider by mail or telephone:
Primary name server * Host: **ns1.webshopapp.com** * IP: **220.127.116.11** Secondary name server * Host: **ns2.webshopapp.com** * IP: **18.104.22.168** Tertiary name server * Host: **ns3.webshopapp.com** * IP: **22.214.171.124**
Usually, you can set up DNS connections yourself with your domain name provider.
Modify/add the records below to your DNS Record
Record 1 * Name: www * Type: A * Value: 126.96.36.199 Record 2 * Name: * * Type: A * Value: 188.8.131.52 Record 3 (when you have to fill in something, then fill in @) * Name: * Type: A * Value: 184.108.40.206
If you want to use a DNS link to operate your email traffic through SEOshop, add an MX record and send it to IP address 220.127.116.11.
