Simple DNS Zone Editor

DNS is the component of the Internet which converts human-readable domain names (such as bihira.com) into computer-readable IP addresses (such as 66.90.104.122). It does this according to DNS zone files that reside on our servers and tie domain names to IP addresses.

There are several different types of records in a domain's zone file. Simple DNS Zone Editor allows you to create and delete A and CNAME records.

Add an A Record

An A record is the DNS record that is responsible for mapping hostnames to IP addresses. The A record is essential because it allows DNS servers to identify and locate your website and its various services on the Internet. Without an A record, your visitors will not be able to access your website, FTP servers, or email accounts.

To add an A record:

  1. Select a domain from the drop-down menu.
  2. Type in the Name and Address of the A record.
  3. Click Add A Record.

Add a CNAME Record

CNAME record stands for "canonical name record." This record creates an alias, allowing a querying server to continue the DNS lookup under the new name.

To add a CNAME record:

  1. Select a domain from the drop-down menu.
  2. Type in the Name and CNAME of the CNAME record.
  3. Click Add CNAME Record.

Delete a Record

To delete an A or CNAME record:

  1. Click Delete next to the record you wish to remove.
  2. Click Delete to confirm that the record should be deleted.
