These A-records helps in redirecting naked domain to your www subdomain.

Unknown on 24 October, 2017 said...

hi again, of course thanks, that worked even twice already, on different places.
but how do i figure out myself these a-record numbers?
i need to be able to track those digits myself, because if something disrupts the connection, then i am stuck, and it's daunting to even consider this.
so i need your help man, please.

Hammad Ansari on 24 October, 2017 said...

@NotJohn Sandson
Buddy! These A-records remains same for all blogger custom domain.These all are google's IPs that helps to redirect your non www to www. These are all secured, you can try by visiting them in browser. You will find a google error there.
I hope it helps.

Hammad Ansari on 25 October, 2017 said...

@NotJohn Sandson
You can easily track them directly from your Domain's DNS records settings from your Domain provider's Dashboard.

Unknown on 26 October, 2017 said...

@Hammad Ansari

in this case, domain's provider is freenom?
if so, how do i navigate to the dashboard?

Hammad Ansari on 27 October, 2017 said...

@NotJohn Sandson

Go to your freenom account. On Menu bar “Domains” click on sub-menu “My Domains”
Click on Manage Domains and then Manage Freenom DNS.

Hope this helps.
