DirectAdmin - How to edit DNS records ?

Modified on Thu, 18 Jan 2024 at 11:25 AM

DirectAdmin - provides a simple editor of DNS resource records.

Incorrect DNS settings can cause your site to be down for an extended period of time.


Do not modify existing records created automatically when you add a domain. It is sufficient to bind the domain to the hosting.


In order to bind a domain to hosting, go to "Account Management - Domain Setup" and click "Add New".




Create/add records


Resource records are created and edited in the "Account Management - DNS Management" section.



Click "Add Record" if you want to create a new one, or select from the existing ones if you want to edit the current records.


All changes will take effect in about 2 hours, sometimes DNS updates may take longer. The maximum time for changes to take effect is 24 hours.


Deleting records

Highlight an entry or group of entries, and click delete.
