How to point records to a new IP

Hey Guys. I’m super new to all of this web hosting stuff. It’s a miracle I got cloud flare working in the first place. I know nothing. Heck I don’t even know what information is safe to share or not. Anyhoo, I had a quick question on how to ‘point my records’ to a new IP address.

I’m in the prosses of changing hosting services.

This has probably been answered in a million places. I’m just too dumb still to know where.

Thanks.

Super easy (I hope). Go to the DNS page in your account. You’ll see a bunch of “A” records with the same IP address (your old one). Something like 123.123.123.123

You’ll have to click on each one to open up the editor, then change the 123.123.123.123 to whatever the new one is.

Sweet, thanks I’ll try it out
