Step 3: Adding a DNS Record
There are quite a few DNS records available in Plesk. Here is a short explanation of what they do:
- A Record: It is a record that connects a domain/subdomain to an IPv4.
- AAAA Record: It is a record that connects a domain/subdomain to an IPv6.
- NS Record: (Name Server) Is a record that allows a subdomain to use a different name server.
- CNAME Record: Lets you connect a domain/subdomain to another domain/subdomain.
- MX Record: It is a record that allows you to send emails by adding a mail server.
- PTR Record: It is a record that connects an IP address with domain/subdomain (Just like the A record but reversed).
- TXT Record: It is a record that lets you add readable text to the DNS records.
- SVR Record: It is a record that lets you add the location of a service within the domain/subdomain.
Now you can choose the record that you would like to add. Enter this in the required fields. In this example, we will add a CNAME record to our DNS records. Once you have entered your records click
OK to proceed.
A warning should pop up on the top of the page stating that you need to select
Update . Through this selection the changes will be applied. Select
Update to continue.
Congratulations, you have successfully added a DNS record in Plesk.
