DNS Management – Client Area

Learn How to Change DNS Records – DNS Management in Client Area. You can add, edit or delete DNS records in your account.

Domain Name System, or DNS, converts domain names into numbers, called IP addresses. Every website is identified by a number, an IP address; computers read that. For example, one of the IP addresses for Google is 172.217.14.228. When web browsers look for Google, they look for 172.217.14.228, which they find in the Google Name Server databases. DNS forms the backbone of the internet, the authority on where every website is located.

  4. Record Type

    A record
    An A record maps a domain name to the IP address (Version 4) of the computer hosting the domain.
    An A record uses a domain name to find the IP address of a computer connected to the internet.
    AAAA record
    It maps a domain name to the IP address (Version 6) of the computer hosting the domain.
    The AAAA record is conceptually similar to the A record, but it allows you to specify the IPv6 address of the server, rather than the IPv4.
    CNAME
    A type of record that also adds a prefix to your domain name and is sometimes referred to as a type of subdomain.
    A CNAME can’t point to an IP address. It can only point to another domain name or URL address.
    MX record
    Manages your email address and makes sure your email messages get to your inbox.
    SPF record
    A type of TXT record that lets you set up email sender policies. This is an advanced type of DNS record.
