I would like to implement custom domains on Tumblr but my hosting provider is asking for "Host" and "Points To" input.

Tumblr only provides:

A-record: 66.6.44.4
CNAME: domains.tumblr.com

See, image below.

CNAME enter image description here

A-record enter image description here

What should I input for those fields?

The "Host" is your domain name. So if your site is example.com, you might want to create:

  1. record
    • Type: A
    • Host: example.com
    • Points to: 66.6.44.4
  2. record
    • Type: A
    • Host: www.example.com
    • Points to: 66.6.44.4

OR

  1. record
    • Type: CNAME
    • Host: example.com
    • Points to: domains.tumblr.com
  2. record
    • Type: CNAME
    • Host: www.example.com
    • Points to: domains.tumblr.com

Here is Tumblr's help document on the process: https://tumblr.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/231256548-Custom-domains
