Checking Your DNS Settings for Existing Entries

  • In the Domains section of the Control Panel, click on the Gear SYMBOL for the desired domain under Actions and then on DNS.

  • Check whether an A record already exists.

  • If an A record has already been added to the DNS settings, check the host name and the entered value. Make sure that only one A record is listed in the DNS settings. If the A record belongs to a service, it must be deactivated.

You can adjust existing A records in the Control Panel. To do this, simply follow these steps:

  • In the Domains > DNS section of the Control Panel next to the desired A record, click on the Gear SYMBOL under Actions and select Edit Record.

Adding an A Record

  • In the Domains section of the Control Panel, next to your desired domain, click on the gear symbol under Actions and selectDNS.

  • Click Add Record and select the A type.
