How can I use DNS Management in the client area for my domains?

In order to use the 'DNS Management' provided by our domain registrar (Enom), you will first want to prep it's DNS zone in our client area. The DNS management section of our client area is a separate system from that of the DNS management on the cPanel servers. It would connect directly to our registrar (Enom) so that you can still manage DNS for the domain without it existing on one of our servers.

You can prep the DNS zone from: https://support.hostrocket.com/clientarea.php > Domains > My Domains > Manage Domain section, you should see an option for DNS Management where you can create DNS records as necessary. If you do not see the DNS Management option and would like it enabled, please submit a ticket.

Once you have the DNS zone prepped, you would then set the nameservers for that domain to that of our registrar. You would do so from the client area > Domains > My Domains > Manage Nameservers next to the domain in question, then update the nameservers to the following:

dns1.name-services.com
dns2.name-services.com
dns3.name-services.com
dns4.name-services.com
dns5.name-services.com

Only then would the DNS zone entries that you created have any effect.
