If your nameservers are set to:


Make sure you enable DNS Management under 'Addons' while you're logged into your acccount and on the Domains > My Domains page. Then you can manage your DNS from our portal. Your domain must be registered through us to use this option.


If you have a hosting plan from us and you are using the nameservers provided in your Welcome Email, you can manage your DNS through your DirectAdmin or cPanel control panel.


If you have a VPS (Virtual Private Server) from us, you will manage your DNS through WHM / cPanel or DirectAdmin


If your domain is registered elsewhere and you are using their custom nameservers, you will manage your DNS through that domain registrars portal.
