Changing DNS A record

Hi, I'm trying to change the A record for a website and I am a bit confused, because I see several different entries for www, ftp, etc.

Can you do a DNS lookup on argosyachts.com ?

I would like to point to the website www.argosyachts.com to another IP -- let's say 1.1.1.1

My understanding is that I only have to change the 'A' record in order to make this happen - is this correct?

I do not want to change the MX records - the email should still be handled by the same servers

Thank you

that is correct, only change the A record for www to point to the new IP address
