Note:

  • Once you have added or changed the required DNS records, allow 2 to 24 hours for DNS propagation to complete
  • Incorrect DNS changes can interfere with the operation of your website and/or email, so make changes with care.
  • You need to log in at Admin level i.e.with your Customer number and Management password. When logged in on ‘Domain level’, i.e. with your domain name and FTP password, the tool will not be visible because this level of administration is only provided to authoritative contacts.
  • Self-Managed customers who wish to add reverse (PTR) DNS records for their allocated IP addresses are not able to do so via the Manage DNS tool and will need to send these requests to our Support team from their authorised email address.
