The Value is not a valid DNS record. You can't point a DNS record to a URL. It has to be to a DNS Name or IP Address

  • I set the records values to IP addresses, but I'm still getting this site cannot be reached, is there anything else I need to do?

  • Are you really sure you want Http and https in your record name?

    Seems there no webserver/host called www.Sam ventures.net at 172.67.70.96

    If you have a website at www.example.com/sam which is a feeling you’re trying to achieve that’s not going to work either.

  • What your trying to achieve is I’m afraid not how web hosting works.

    You have placed the IP addresses of the homesmart.com server in your values.

    You can’t make up a webname and send to another webserver unless that webserver has host names configured
