How to Add “A Record” in cPanel

The “A record” stands as a pivotal DNS record, pivotal for directing a domain or subdomain towards a specific IP address. To add an A Record, utilize the cPanel’s Zone Editor feature.

  1. Sign into your cPanel dashboard.
  2. Within the **Domains** category, select the **Zone Editor** option.
  3. In the **Domains** tab, you’ll notice various choices under the **Actions** label.
  4. Opt for the **A Record**. This action will trigger a dialogue box. Kindly fill out the necessary fields:
    Name: Input the desired name. As an illustration, keying in **blog** will prompt cPanel to append the domain, yielding something like
    Address: Provide the IP Address pertaining to the server.
  5. Proceed by clicking **Add an A Record**.
    Well done! Your A Record is now integrated. Be patient as the DNS propagation might extend up to 24 hours.

    Heads up: Globally, the adjustments might necessitate a duration ranging from 12 to 24 hours to be fully operational.
