How To Add a record

To add a record, perform the following steps:

1 – Open cPanel (yourdomain/cpanel).

2 – Click on (Advanced Zone Editor) from Domains section.

3 – If this account owns more than one domain, select the domain that you wish to manage from the Domain menu.

4 – Select a record type:

  • A — This record maps hostnames to IP addresses. A records are essential because they allow DNS servers to identify and locate your website and its various services on the Internet. Without appropriate A records, your visitors cannot access your website, FTP site, or email accounts.
  • AAAA — This record maps hostnames to IPv6 addresses.
  • CNAME — This record creates an alias for another domain name, which DNS looks up. This is useful, for example, if you point multiple CNAME records to a single A record in order to simplify DNS maintenance.
  • SRV— This record provides information about available services on specific ports on your server.
  • TXT — This record contains text information for various services to read. For example, TXT records can specify data for the SPF (Sender Policy Framework) or DKIM (Domain Keys Mail Identifier) email authentication systems.

5 – Enter the appropriate information for the record type that you select.

6 – Click Add A Record.
