Pointing A record with name

Hi, Domain name is registered with GoDaddy and website hosted in some other company. So I would like to point the A record to their web server IP address but now the problem is, they are running two different web site in single server and they are requesting me to update the A record with ip + name like this (xxx.xx.xxx.xx/~domainname/). Is it correct idea? Please advise. Thank you

A records are just IP addresses. It sounds like they are using cPanel and it would be to access the site before you point the domain. Once the domain is pointed to the IP it should work correctly

@PL281 . Thank you very much for your reply. I could not able to find your free advise in this forum. 

From your message, I understand that, pointing only the A record to their web server IP is enough. Am I correct? Please advise. Thank you
