1. Login to your domain registrar for example - GoDaddy and click on the domain name you wish to create the record for
  2. Then go to the second tab which is labeled “DNS Zone File”
  3. Under the Zone File section, click on “add record”.
  4. Select record type “A (Host)”
    1. In the popup window, enter Host Field as “RDP” or whatever you are using but not the full subdomain which would be in this example “RDP.Denver-Colocation.com”
    2. In the popup window, enter the Points To field as the IP address of your server XXX.XXX.XXX.XXXX and TTL as 1 hour or whatever is default
    3. Click OK
  5. Make sure to SAVE RECORD.  In our experience, it only takes 5 or 10 minutes to take effect.  Once you can ping RDP.Denver-Colocation.com then you can login with the domain name instead of the IP address.
  6. Test it by logging into your server using RDP.Denver-Colocation.com instead of IP address
