To change the "A" records for your domain, you'll need to:

Log into your account at https://www.hostica.com/login.html
Click on your domain name.
Click on the Edit icon next to DNS Configuration.
Click the trash can icon next to the built in "A" records:

yourdomain.com   86400   IN    A   12.34.567.890
*.yourdomain.com   86400   IN    A   12.34.567.890

Click the "Add DNS A Record" link.
Leave the "Name" field blank. Enter the IP address you want to point to in the "Data" field, and Submit.


Click the "Add DNS A Record" link again.
Enter "*" in the "Name" field.  Enter the IP address you want to point to in the "Data" field, and Submit.


Once the new A records have been added, it will take up to 24 hours for the changes to take effect.

In order to map my domain name with a squarespace site I'm building, I need to add a "DNS A Record" with the name "@".

When I click submit, Hostica's DNS configurer tells me there is an error with the name and doesn't allow me to add a DNS A Record. I need to add 4 of them [ according to http://help.squarespace.com/guides/mapping-a-domain-general-instructions ]

What do i do?
