Domain & DNS Help - Post ID 298921
I am trying to route my domains to CoffeeCup and struggling to understand what information is needed in what boxes.
Please see attached image of crazy domains dns management page.
If some one can help me on what info I need to add/change that would be great
I have the domain 21daysinhisgarden.com, which I registered through WhoIs.com, and cannot get my website to come up.
Here is what I attempted thus far.
I went into Manage DNS on WhoIs.com, created an A-record with the IP Address 126.96.36.199
I went into Manage Domains on CoffeeCup.com, and created an alias (21daysinhisgarden.com), to point to the url address assigned to my hosting space by S-Drive (https://21daysinhisg-0fb5d3.coffeecup.com)
I went back into Manage DNS on Whois.com, created a CName record (see attachment for the Add CName Record Screen over at the WhoIs registrar) and entered "https://21daysinhisg-0fb5d3.coffeecup.com" in the bottom box next to "Value" where it says "(Type In A Fully Qualified Domain Name eg. abc.pqr.com)", but when I attempted to click on "Add Record", I got an error message--"A record Exists having same name. Please Check For Record Conflicts."--even though there were no CName records prior to my going into the screen to Add a CName record. (See attachment)
I cannot pull the website up with 21daysinhisgarden.com. I can only get it to come up with 21daysinhisg-0fb5d3.coffeecup.com. When I try to use 21daysinhisgarden.com, I get the page that says "Nothing Here Yet . . . "
(Note: I established that the website home page IS being uploaded to the S-Drive, as it turns up in the S-Drive screen after DirectFTPing it over, because my index.html file appears in the S-Drive, just as it would appear when using the drag-and-drop method to upload files to the S-Drive.)
This has been going on for DAYS, and my wife and I are VERY disillusioned, not to mention exhausted, by all of this. We're trying to launch our site and our brand, people are getting product with our website on the packaging, and the website is just not coming up! There's been a LOT of back and forth with your support team--try this--try that. . . . We're at the end of our rope! Can someone PLEASE just set this up for us so that we can move on? Please???? Perhaps someone can reach out to me by phone 917-562-3476, and just walk me through this, step by step, so that I can get this site up and running, once and for all? Please????
Your PROMPT response will be greatly appreciated.

Please don't post the same question in several threads. That is likely to create two discussions about the same thing. I have deleted your other post.

Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
