- Locate your domain and click the "Details" button list to the right. In the domain Details area that appears, click the "Edit" option next to "DNS Records."

- To add DNS records, select the record type you would like to add from the "Type" drop-down, then enter the hostname and answer for the record. Click the "Add" button to add the record to DNS.
