If you are using the 1&1 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.

Applies to Version(s): All versions

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

Getting Started

Log in to the 1&1 Control Panel using your 1&1 Customer ID OR domain name and your 1&1 password.

If the domain is not currently set to use the 1&1 name servers, you will not be able to change the IP address within the 1&1 Control Panel. You will need to update the IP address with your current DNS host.

Select Other IP address and enter the four parts of the IP address within the text boxes. Each number separated by a dot(.) should be typed into a separate text box.

Click the Save button when finished.
