Update your hosts file

To update your Windows hosts file:

  1. Open Notepad as an administrator (right-click on it and click on Run as Administrator).

  2. Use Notepad to open the following Windows file: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

  3. Add the following line to your hosts file:

    <IP Address> domain.tld www.domain.tld

    Where domain.tld is your domain name and <IP Address> Is the IP address you've been asked to point it at.

  4. Save the hosts file in Notepad.

  5. Open a Command Prompt as Administrator and run the following: ipconfig/flushdns

NOTE: Please do not remove anything from the hosts file that is already there. You can remove the hosts file redirect simply by following the above steps and remove the records added in step 3.
