Great, thank you for the help. Right now, the site is visible from some computers but not others. Waiting a day or two to see if it resolves.

Thanks again!

The instructions given in the link by Scott seem clear. Use as the A record. Don't forget to save. then wait 24-72 hours for the record to update.

Then go to your s-drive dashboard and click settings. Then click manage domains.

If you are still having trouble please check back.
