If you are using the Yahoo name servers (DNS), you can change the DNS settings (DNS zones, DNS records) such as the A record. The A record is the DNS record that holds which IP address the domain should point to. This is the record you need to change so it points to PinnacleCart servers so your domain name then points to your store. The steps provided are based on the last known setup for this domain's DNS administration page. If the steps are no longer accurate, please see this page for the most up-to-date instructions on editing the DNS records for this domain host.

Applies to Version(s): All versions

Note: Contact support to get the IP address for your store if you do not have it.
