I have a VPS in England and a hosting account with hostgator. I use GoDaddy to manage my domain name settings.
My VPS is mainly used for mail and certain other services. The actual site is hosted at hostgator
I had a cname called "www" which would point to mydomain.com, at hostgator All the rest would point to my vps. (The "A" host, @)
Now Hostgator lost my original domain name, so pointing to that leads to a fake website.
But you can't just make www point to an ip adres. No. I tried adding an "A" host which would point to the hostgator ip-adres and then I would point the "www" cname to that "A" host.
But that does not work. Can anyone shed some light on this?
