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.

Log into your Client Area and select Domains.


Step 2 - Select the domain in question and click on the Options icon, then Manage Nameservers.


Step 3 - Select DNS Manager Nameservers, then select Change.


Step 4 - Select Manage DNS from the right sidebar.


Step 5 - Select Add New Zone for the domain in question.


Step 6 - Add your server's IP address. You would generally be given this as part of a Product Welcome Email. Select Add Zone once done.
Note: If you are only using this DNS manager for email hosting or don't know your server IP, enter You will be able to modify the records later.

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.

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.
