If you ever have set up a domain or transferred a website to a new hosting, then you have to faced with questions of setting DNS.
In this article, we will cover the basic concepts for working with DNS.

DNS records indicate how domains correspond to IPs or other domains. They are stored in text documents called zone files, and they are the source of the information nameservers use to respond to lookup requests. A single record looks like this: example.com. IN A 198.51.100.85

There are numerous types of records. In the example, we used an “A record,” which maps a domain to an IP address. Other types include:

  • CNAME records, which map one domain name to another. You might use a CNAME to point blog.example.com at example.com instead of having two “A records” for the same IP.

  • MX records are Mail Exchanger records. They say where incoming mail should be sent.

  • NS records indicate which DNS server is authoritative for a domain: ns1.mynameserver.com, for example.

Zone files can contain dozens of record types and other directives, but you will usually only need to edit these four, which can be done in the cPanel interface.

How Do I Find My DNS Records in cPanel?

cPanel creates and manages records in response to changes you make in the interface, but you can also edit zone files in the Zone Editor, which you will find in the Domains section of the cPanel Home page.

Setting up a DNS name server using cPanel
The cPanel method allows you to use your own domain name as a name server for web sites hosted on our server. To use your domain name, you first need to set up an account for it.

How to configure DNS server names using cPanel.

1. Log in to cPanel with your username and password
2. Click DNS manage
3. Click Change DNS Zone.
4. Select the required domain name and click the Change button.
5. In the rows where NS is displayed in the menu, replace the right columns with ns1.your domain name, ns2.your domain name, and so on.


6. In the Add new entries section below this line, do the following on the first line:
◦ First field: Type ns1
◦ Second field: Enter 14400.
◦ Third field: Select A.
◦ Fourth field: Enter the IP address.


Then on the second line, do the following:
◦ First field: Type ns2
◦ Second field: Enter 14400.
◦ Third field: Select A.
◦ Fourth field: Enter the server IP address.
7. Click the Save button.
After making these changes, the DNS extension can take up to 24 hours.
