Changing DNS Settings

At the main control panel menu, click the "DNS Menu" icon to access the DNS settings.

 

 

Above is an example of the DNS settings for site-helper.com.  The next sections provide information on changing A, CNAME, NS, MX, and PTR records.  In the meantime, it is important to understand how the control panel handles hostnames.

 

Important:  There are two ways to enter a hostname:

 

1.  The full hostname followed by a period:  full.hostname.com.

 

2.  The subdomain alone:  full

     

For example, the first record in the table above can read:

 

admin  A  216.194.67.119   or

admin.site-helper.com.  A  216.194.67.119

 

Both records do the exact same thing.  The sections below may discuss only one method but either is acceptable.

 

Hint:  If you are unsure how to enter a record, look at the existing records in the table for guidance.
