Edit DNS Records on our Nameservers

You will first need to add the domain to our nameservers by following step 3 in the guide here: Pointing Your Domain to Your Nimbus Server.

Once that is done, you will be ready to change the domains DNS entries:

Please log into https://youraccount.nimbushosting.co.uk/clientarea.php and follow the steps below.

1. Add the domain to our DNS system using the DNS management panel in your account if it isnt already. This is accessed via the Domains drop down on the menu bar above (Once logged in), then DNS Management



2. Select your domain from the dropdown of all the domains you have on our nameservers, and click 'Go'.

Domain Select

3. You will be met with a list of the current records on your domain. To add a new record, select 'Add New Record'. You can then use the 'Type' column to define which sort of record you are adding - for example if you are adding a new mail mx record, change it to 'MX'. You can then define the Priority and Destination in the relevant columns. 

DNS Records Edit
The Types of DNS Records you can add/change:

A - Most commonly record, used to map hostnames to an IP address of the hosting server. The destination must be an IPv4 address.
AAAA - Same as an A record but for a 128-bit IPv6 address. The destination must be an IPv6 address.
MX - Maps a domain name to a list of mail servers for that domain. The destination must be an hostname.
TXT - This is an text based record, typically used for verification records, SPF records and DKIM records.
CNAME - Alias of one name to another: the DNS lookup will continue by retrying the lookup with the new name. The destination must be an hostname.
SRV - Generalized service location record, used for newer protocols instead of creating protocol-specific records such as MX. This type of record is typically required for MS Exchange/Office 365.
