How to Update/Manage DNS




** Note: Updating or changing DNS records for the following method applies to domain names only. Hosting accounts will require DNS updating in cPanel control panel.

In order to change any configuration options with any product or service through DOMAINScanada.ca you must first login in to the account control panel by clicking on the Manage Account button in the top right of any page. Once logged in you can manage DNS for any of your domains by performing the following steps:


1. Select the Domains Page

All domains registered under your account can be found in the Domains link in the top red menu bar.






2. Select a Domain Name to Manage

Find the domain name you wish to make changes to and click on the Manage Domain button that corresponds to that domain name.






3. Select Manage DNS

Under the Management Tools tab, select Manage DNS from the dropdown.






4. Add or Change DNS Records.

Add the DNS records you require for the domain (A, CNAME, MX, etc) or modify current DNS records.






DNS Record Examples

Standard DNS Records to reslove both the domain name and the www subdomain to a web server address:

Host Record Type Address Priority
@ A (Address) 66.209.187.12  
www A (Address) 66.209.187.12  


CNAME DNS record to point example.com to example1.com domain:
Host Record Type Address Priority
@ CNAME (Alias) example1.com.  
Note: The trailing period at the end of the domain in the 'Address' field above is mandatory to prevent
the system from appending the parent domain to the end of the address.



MX and A DNS records for a mail server:
Host Record Type Address Priority
mail A (Address) 66.209.187.12  
@ MX (Mail) mail.example.com. 10
Note: The trailing period at the end of the domain in the 'Address' field above is mandatory to prevent
the system from appending the parent domain to the end of the address.



Txt DNS record using the code "v=spf1 a -all":
