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.

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.
