    This might be a stupid question but I need cant seem to find a solution to my problem anywhere.

    I need to connect WordPress to Ionos.de and support at Ionos told me I need to add the DNS of WordPress.org to the DNS records.

    Where can I find the DNS or is there anything else I can do?

    Ionos offers a easy connect to WordpPress.com but is way too expensive for me.

    What do you mean by “connect WordPress to ionos.de”? What are you trying to accomplish?

    Perhaps something is “missing in translation” here. My guess is there’s some confusion stemming from the fact that most people refer to a self-hosted WordPress site as “WordPress.org site”.

    So perhaps @fvmarket has a domain with Ionos.de (but no hosting), and is looking to build a WordPress site… but doesn’t want to use Ionos’ integrated WordPress.com service. So Ionos.de support is asking for the DNS of the “WordPress.org” site (ie external hosting provider) to point the domain to.

    If my theory holds, then, @fvmarket: what you need is a hosting account to host your WordPress site yourself (aka WordPress.org site) — as WordPress.org doesn’t offer any hosting. You can purchase this hosting service from Ionos.de, or from any other hosting prover.

    If you get your hosting from Ionos.de, you’ll be using their DNS name servers. If you get your hosting from a 3rd-party, you’ll be using that 3rd-party’s DNS name servers. Either way, you don’t need any such DNS info from WordPress.org.
