i have a simple reseller account to give my clients some hosting space. one specific client keeps the domain registered with his current domain registrar. to point the domain name at his new hosting account (provided by me) he's saying that he just needs the "a-record", not the nameservers that i gave him originally. i can not seem to find an a-record for my hosting accounts anywhere ...
my hosting support is saying the client will just need the IP address. but afaik ip address is not == a-record
can anyone clarify what an a-record is exactly and whether or not it can be interchanged with an ip address?
this is for a .co.uk domain name and my reseller account is with hostgator
