    Fred, when going live, you are already given the option to either point your A Record to your store's IP address, or to point the nameservers towards ours. By choosing the point your A Record, you remain in control of your own DNS and can add/edit/remove all of the records as normal. However, I agree the idea of in-app editing of your DNS records for stores that use the nameserver method would be a neat feature and would suggest this idea be more focused on that since you do currently have the capability to retain control of the DNS.

    Shayne, thanks for your speedy reply. It was very enlightening! When we were ready to go live, I was told that I needed to submit a support ticket. I wasn't aware that there was another way to set up our AmeriCommerce store to use our own domain name. I certainly like the idea of retaining control of our DNS records. Can you please direct me to a help page or an admin menu item which would enable me to do that with future projects? Thanks, Fred

    I'd like to see this as well. My email is hosted on a separate server from my domain and thus I would need to create a record pointing to the email server. Its much easier to do it myself than create a support ticket and wait.

    I am waiting to be switched now. In the meantime, I have an error on my domain page, so for days my site has been messed up because I have to wait. I could do it myself if I had the info/instructions. It would have been done days ago already.
