Update: part of this is cut off. Under the Add IP address (A Record) below I have the register.com address on the left and the posterous IP address on the right and it shows that when I log into register.com
I registered a domain name with register.com for my posterous and followed the instructions but am still getting this error:
Oops. We ran into 1 problem!
Try to fix these issues and try again.
- Virtual host is not currently pointing to the right place. We found:
- A RECORD: XXX.XX.XXX.XXX
Please set your DNS servers to the correct address (A record to 'XX.XXX.XXX.XX') and try again.
I have it set correctly on register.com, I think:

What else do I need to do?
Hello, it can take an hour for your a record to be deleted and your new one to work. It depends on the TTL set by register.com After your new A record has been added then you go to manage in Posterous to add your new url. I hope this helps.
I’m be on IM as WayneSutton12 for a few if you want to chat.
[this is good] You’re the bombdiggety. I will hold out and see how it’s looking in the morning. Appreciate the knowledge.
No problem, Corvida set me your way via twitter.
Hi guysLet me know how I can help. I looked at the DNS and it looks like it still points to someplace else:Non-authoritative answer:Name: http://www.mssoulpower.comAddress: 188.8.131.52My im is garryktan, garrytan on Gtalk.-Garry-cofounder, posterous.com
Garry, thanks so mu I guess I need to know, which IP address goes in which box to get this right. The 208 address is from register.com I had the 208 pointing to the Posterous IP address listed in the instructions on Posterous. I have zero technical skills (maybe that’s the problem). So the question is does your IP go on the right and their’s on the left, vice versa or did I miss a step?
You need to create an A record from:mssoulpower.comto 184.108.40.206You can follow up with me at email@example.com, and if you feel comfortable sharing your pw we’d be happy to set it up for you too.
Garry, lawdamercy, I thought that’s what I did. I’m going to email you this is clearly beyond my knowledge base 😉
