I need enlightenment on the subject of altering an A record for a website domain name.
I have obtained the correct IP address and provided it to the holder of the domain name records so he can change the A record. As far as i am aware this is all that needs to happen for a website to appear when the domain name in entered into the browser.
But it doesn't.
Instead, when I type my domain name (or IP address) it redirects to ../cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi where a cPanel "Default Web Site Page" loads instead of MY website.
I've contacted my hosting provider for information and assistance but have reached a dead-end. (I usually get good support from my host)
Do you know what the problem could be, and how I can fix it?
