To edit an existing or create a new DNS record, you need to log in to your control panel (cPanel).

1. Start by logging in to the customer zone: with the details you chose when you registered, then navigate to "services" under the left-hand menu.

Click on "My services" that appears in the drop-down menu and click on your active web host as shown below:

2. Click on the blue button in the top right corner where your domain name/name appears and select "Log in to cPanel".

3. Once you have logged in to your cPanel, scroll down to "Domains" at the bottom of the screen and click on "Zone editor".

4. Once inside the Zone editor, select the "Manage" button next to the domain you want to add or change the DNS settings of to get started.

Here you can view, edit, delete or add DNS settings. Select "Add record/add value" to add a record. Under "type/type", select the type of record to be added.

Under "Name/name" and "Record/value", fill in the desired name/value. Select "Save record/value" to save. You can also use the buttons on the side of each record to "Edit" or "Delete" a record.

A and CNAME Records:

The CNAME record, often misleadingly referred to as CNAME (Canonical Name), is a type of resource in the Domain Name System (DNS) where you can create an alias name. The record indicates the "canonical" (real) name corresponding to a particular alias. This canonical name often has an "A-record", which in turn leads to an IP address.

MX Records:

Mail exchange record - domain name database entry indicating which mail server is handling the mail for a domain. It specifies the domain name of one or more mail servers to which mail addressed a particular domain should be routed.

​PF and TXT Records:

SPF specifies the mail servers that are allowed to send mail for your domain. Receiving mail servers use SPF to verify that incoming messages (that appear to come from your domain) have been sent from servers that you have authorized.

TXT pointers allow a domain administrator to enter text into the Domain Name System (DNS). The TXT pointer was originally intended as a place for human-readable notes. Nowadays it is also possible to include machine-readable data in the TXT pointer such as various domain verifications or similar.
