    • Hello Paul,
      For name, you are simply entering the domain or subdomain that you want to direct people from. For the address, you want to enter the IP address that you want the name to send visitors to. For example, if you enter the name “test” and the IP address “1.111.111.1,” visitors going to test.YourDomain.com will be redirected to that IP address.
