Manage DNS Records in cPanel

This tutorial will show you how to manage your domains' DNS zone and records via cPanel

If you have your domain name pointed to your hosting server via the name servers records this means that your DNS zone is managed via your hosting server. In this case, cPanel provides with two different tools to create and manage your DNS zone via an easy to use interface.

 

Step 1 Simple Zone Editor

If you would like to simply add an additional A record for your domain name or point a subdomain to a remote IP address you can use the Simple Zone Editor located under the Domains section in your cPanel.
