How to set up and use your DNS Manager


In order to set up your DNS manager, you will need to update your Nameservers and create a DNS zone through the client area.
Note: Our DNS managers are only available for domains that are registered through us. If you'd like to use our DNS manager you can transfer your domain to us, or use an external DNS manager like CloudFlare.

Create DNS Manager

Information on the Legacy DNS Manager
Our Legacy DNS manager product can no longer be purchased. However, existing users would have received login details in a DNS Manager Account Information email, and you could use those details to log into your DNS manager through cPanel. We have detailed guides on the available functions, as seen below:

Zone Editor

You are able to add or edit A-Records, CNAME, MX Records and TXT Records with this tool. You can also add authentication records like SPF and DKIM.

Forwarders
An email forwarder allows you to send a copy of all email from one address to another. This is handy when you have multiple addresses, but only want to have to check one of them.

Redirects

This will redirect your website to another website.
