Click Add to add DNS records. We support five DNS record types, including A record, MX record, NX record, TXT record, and CNAME record.
Create A record
An A record maps a domain name to the IP address (Ipv4) of the computer hosting the domain. By default, The system has created a blank A record and a www A record.
Create MX record
MX records are used to specify the e-mail server(s) responsible for a domain name.
Create NS record
NS records identify the DNS servers authoritative for a zone.
Create TXT record
TXT records are used to provide the ability to associate arbitrary text with a host or other name
Create CNAME record
CNAME records can be used to alias a hostname to another hostname.
