How do I change DNS
Posted by Tim Botherway on 30 July 2018 07:35 PM
Go to the Domain Summary:
1. Do this via selecting the ‘Domains’ menu on the left-hand side, and selecting the appropriate domain in the list.
2. To find the DNS editor, select go to the ‘DNS Hosting’ panel and select the ‘Actions’ drop-down menu then select ‘Manage DNS Records’
Adding a DNS Entry
At the top of the screen, you can select ‘Add New Record’ in here you can add in different DNS entries as you require. See below for what each of the different types of DNS records do:
Host (Optional): This is used to specify a subdomain so anything in front of your domain, e.g., sub.example.co.nz
TTL: Time to live, this allows you to edit the propagation time (in seconds) to how quickly it will cache to the DNS server. You do not normally need to modify this value.
Editing a current DNS value
You can edit a DNS value at any time. Just go into the ‘Manage DNS records’ in the ‘Actions’ drop-down, after you select the appropriate domain you want to edit
You can check if the changes have complete by using an online tool such as https://www.whatsmydns.net/. Alternatively, you can use the Linux command line ‘dig <domain>’ or a ping test in Windows command prompt to see if it has changed over.
Delete a DNS value
You can also select from the ‘Actions’ drop-down on the individual DNS record and select ‘Delete.’. Alternatively, you can select the checkbox next to a domain, then press the delete button at the top of the list, which is helpful when you need to delete a large bulk of DNS entries.
How long does it take for DNS changes to take effect?
I’ve made changes on your system, but it's not changing over?
