Help for setting up an A record for DNS.

Posted May 24, 2015 7.3k views

In this tutorial it refers to setting up your A record.

Do I have to assign a hostname? Or can I just use the default @ A record?
Are there any benefits or purposes that I should be assigning a hostname other than @ for the A record.

It’s ok, I looked further down on that link i posted and there are comments asking the same questions. So now I have found that I can just leave the @ A record and not have to declare a hostname.
