This article describes operations in the non-advanced mode of the "DNS" product interface. Differences in interfaces modes are described in the article "About Gcore DNS".
Open the “All zones” tab and select the domain zone you want to add records for. Click it or the Go to records button next to it.
Click Add record.
You will see the interface for adding new DNS record. Perform other steps in it.
In the "Type" section, select the type of DNS record you want to create: A, AAAA, NS, CNAME, MX, SRV, HTTPS, TXT, or CAA. Learn more about them in the article Supported DNS record types.
In the “Name” field, specify the subdomain the record belongs to. To add a record for:
Fill in the "Content" field. Enter a value appropriate for your record type.
|A||The IP address (IPv4) of the server of the web page that will open by your domain name. Example: 220.127.116.11|
|AAAA||The IP address (IPv6) of the server of the web page that will open by your domain name. Example: 7625:0d18:1fa3:07d7:1f44:8a2e:07a0:678h|
|NS||The name of the zone you want to delegate your domain to. Example: ns1.smth.com|
|CNAME||The domain or domain zone name that your domain should refer to. Example: uuuuu8.cdn.co|
|MX||The name of the mail server that receives mail for your domain. Example: ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM If you are using multiple mail servers, fill in the “Priority” field for each server. The lower the value in this field, the higher the priority.|
|SRV||The canonical name of the machine providing the service. Example: sip.example.com|
|HTTPS||HTTPS is a resource record that provides information and parameters for how to access a web service available via HTTTS.
Example: example.com. 1800 IN HTTPS 1 . alpn=h3,h3-29,h2 ipv4hint=18.104.22.168,22.214.171.124
|TXT||Text information the record should contain. Example: logmein-verification-code=976afe6f-8039-40e4-95a5-261b462|
|CAA||Defines the certificate authorities who are allowed to issue an SSL/TLS-certificate for the domain name. The recording consists of three parts which are separated by a space. CAA [flags] [tag] "[value]" The "value" must be enclosed in double-quotes (""). Example: 0 issue "comodo.com"|
TTL (time to live) is the interval in seconds used by servers on the Internet to check if the DNS records for your domain have changed.
Example: A-record has a TTL of 300. You have changed the value of this record from “126.96.36.199” to “127.0.0.7”. Within 5 minutes, when requesting your domain, users will be sent to a server with IP 188.8.131.52 (this value will be stored in the cache of recursive DNS servers). But after 5 minutes, the DNS server will check the settings and see the new value of the A-record. Now, when your domain is requested, the DNS server will send users to the server with IP 127.0.0.7.
After completing the configuration, click the Add button. The DNS record with specified parameters will be created.
You can check if the created record has been added correctly using the Gcore DNS Lookup tool.
