How to add A Record in cPanel using DNS Zone Editor?


A Record is a DNS record and is used to point a domain or subdomain to an IP address. You can add "A Record" using the cPanel™s Zone Editor option.


1. Log into your cPanel account. (eg: www.example.com/cPanel )
2. In the "Domains" section, click on the "Zone Editor" Icon.




Under "Domains", you can see many options below the "Actions" text.



3. Click on "A Record" and a small window will pop open. Enter the required details in it.

Name: Enter the name you wish to add, for example, add "blog" and the cPanel will automatically add a domain name like blog.example.com.
Address: Enter the IP Address of the server.

Now click on the "Add an A Record" button.


If the record is added successfully, you will see a success message. The DNS propagation can take up to 24 hours.

Note: It may take anywhere from 12 to 24 hours for the changes to take effect worldwide.
