With cPanel 11.25, you now have access to make some of these changes.
Note: This effect will only work once you are using DSWP name servers (ns1.wpbarista.com and ns2.wpbarista.com).
- In cPanel, you have an icon under “Domains” called “Simple DNS Zone Editor”. This feature allows you to create and edit A and CNAME records.
- You can also create and edit your MX records with the icon under “Mail” called “MX Entry”.
- You can easily customize your SPF records using the icon under “Mail” called “Email Authentication”.
If you want DSWP’ss help with making these changes, then please contact us via phone, live chat, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your account details, and be prepared to verify your identity for the protection of your account.
1. You must always make your DNS zone changes where your name servers point.
2. DNS zone changes are not instant; they do require time for propagation. Most records need 0-4 hours, but name server records need 0-24 hours.
Here is some information to help you understand DNS zones.
Your name servers’ job is to find the server and correct DNS zone in order to get the following information.
The NS records in the DNS zone must match the nameservers you are using.
The A record points your domain to an ip address. (e.g. mydomain.com -> ip address)
The CNAME record points your subdomain to another domain name, like www and mail. (e.g. www.domain.com -> domain.com)
The MX records control where your emails are received. If you want your mail hosted on another server, then this is what you will need to change. (e.g. domain.com -> server)
