How to change Simple DNS zones (MX, CNAME, and A records)

October 5th, 2010

With our cPanel, you now have access to make simple DNS changes. This access is available in all our hosting plans. If you are looking for Advance DNS Zone Edit features, they are only available on Silver hosting and Unlimited hosting plans.

Note: This feature will take effect only if you are using name servers.

In cPanel, you have an icon under ‘Domains’ called ‘Simple DNS Zone Editor’. This feature allows you to create and edit A and CNAME records.

You can also create and edit your MX records with the icon under ‘Mail’ called ‘MX Entry’. Here are the rules for Local, Backup, and Remote.

You can even customize your SPF records using the icon under ‘Mail’ called ‘Email Authentication’.

If you want SpeedHost’s help with making these changes, then please raise a support ticket from the client area.
