Manage DNS Zones


You can handle DNS areas under DNS Functions in WHM. This place is for advanced users only; so please feel free to request any DNS changes by contacting us through Ticket.

Understanding DNS Zones

The main aim of your name servers is to find the server and the appropriate DNS place to be able to get the following information:

  •     A Record - Points-> your domain name or subdomain to an IP associated with your account (e.g. mydomain.com -> IP address).
  •     CNAME Record - Points-> your domain name or sudomain to another domain (e.g. www.domain.com -> sector.com).
  •     MX Record  - Email management where your e-mails are to be sent. If you want your email organised on another server, this is what you will need to modify (e.g. domain.com -> server.ext).
  •     NS Record  - must coordinate with the nameservers you are using
