What types of DNS records are available within MyZuver?

Last updated: January 18, 2019

With every domain name registration, MyZuver offers Free DNS hosting. This will allow you manage A, MX, CNAME, TXT, NS and SRV records of the domain name zone without the need for a hosting account or a third party DNS provider.

This is especially helpful if you wish to use us for your external DNS hosting or simply want a few records to point to different locations (such as a mail only domain name).

Enabling Free DNS Hosting on your domain name

To enable your Free DNS Hosting, please follow these easy steps:

  1. Login to your MyZuver account.
  2. Click the Manage Domain Names on your MyZuver dashboard.
  3. Select the domain name you’re configuring for Free DNS Hosting.
  4. Using the drop down menu, click Manage DNS.
  5. Change the domain service to the Free DNS Hosting option by clicking it’s button.
  6. Confirm you understand that your name servers will be changed by clicking OK.

Please note: Completing the steps above will change the name servers on your domain. If you have hosting elsewhere (or with us) on that domain name, we highly recommend you use your hosting account to manage your DNS zone and do not change to the MyZuver free DNS hosting option unless you are familiar with what you’re doing.

Adding various DNS records to your DNS zone

  1. Login to your MyZuver account.
  2. Click the Manage Domain Names button on your MyZuver dashboard.
  3. Select the domain name you’re configuring for Free DNS Hosting.
  4. Using the drop down menu, click Manage DNS.
  5. Click the Add Record button.
  6. Select the record type you wish to add, then enter the records as required.

Remember when setting up a record for yourdomain.com, to also configure www.yourdomain.com.

Within that same area of MyZuver, you may also use our one click “Add Google Apps MX” option to automatically add the required GoogleApps records to your Free DNS Hosting zone file.

Please note that using this option will remove any pre-existing MX records within your zone file, and that you should have your GoogleApps account pre-configured to accept your email.

Important Notes – MUST READ

If you already have cPanel hosting for your domain name you can also edit your DNS zone inside of cPanel without needing to change to the Free DNS Hosting option in MyZuver.

Changing over to the MyZuver Free DNS hosting system will cause your website to go offline (unless you create the A record on the MyZuver Free DNS hosting to point to your hosting account).

In this case, we strongly recommend using cPanel for managing your DNS zone, as this will automatically update the zone when you create, modify or add subdomains, or if your account is migrated to another server.
