I bought a vps hosting for one month to do a test drive. When i registered they also registered which is now pointing to a different ip(i cheched by pinging).

This vps is just plain without any extra bundles so no control panel(cPanel).

You can't create an A record using putty unfortunately.

You would need to change the A record for in your domain if you have any way of managing it, if the management of the dns depends on your VPS hosting (or another provider) you should email them to change the record.

Meanwhile you can just configure the new IP address in putty directly in order to connect through ssh, you don't need a dns name for doing so.

Good luck!
