How do I configure my name server settings (DNS records)?

  1. Log in on MyAccount
  2. Click on "Domain names" and select your domain name
  3. Click on "Resource records"


A-Record

  • Enter the Host name (connected to your domain name, e.g. *.fruit.com) and the IP address. Click here to find the IP address of a host name.
  • Click "Add"


 
 


MX-Record
  • Enter the mail exchanger (an existing A-record which doesn’t need to point to your domain name) and the priority (priority for this record (0 till 65535). The lowest number gets the highest priority).
  • Click "Add"




CNAME-Record
  • Enter the alias (connected to your domain name) and the canonical name (an existing A-record which doesn’t need to point to your domain name).
  • Click "Add"



TXT-Record
  • Enter the Host name (your domain name) and the TXT (mostly an spf record).
  • Click "Add"
 


SRV-Record
  • Enter the Owner (the proper record consisting of the service, protocol and domain), Priority (priority for this record (0 till 65535). The lowest number gets the highest priority), Weight (if you are using more services with the same priority you can enter an additional weight (weight) (0 till 65535). The record with the highest value is displayed the most. 0 indicates that no weight needs to be used), Port (port number assigned to the service) and Target (the host name providing the service. The host name doesn’t need to be part of the same domain but has to be a Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN)).
  • Click "Add"
 



Subdomains
  • Enter a subdomain
  • Click "Add"


 

Once you’ve created the subdomain, you are able to configure all records again. To do so, click "Edit" next to the created subdomain.
