Managing DNS Zone in Drupal Clusters

Important:

  • If you are using your own nameservers, you must make the "www" and blank DNS A records of your domain point to the IP address we provide in the Control Panel.

Drupal Clusters offers name servers to manage DNS records for your domain. If you are new to this, please follow the steps below. This article will show you the step-by-step guide.

  • Create your domain
  • Add your DNS records

Create your domain

1. Log in to the Client Panel

Please log in to the Control Panel with your credentials. And locate your target deployment on the Home page or the My Applications page.

2. Navigate to the "Site & SSL" page

Click the "Manage" button on the Home page or the My Applications pgae, followed by the “Site & SSL” tab. Then find the domain you would like to enable the SSL certificate for.

3. Add a domain

On this page, you can see that a default domain drupal-XXXX-0.cloudclusters.net is configured for each newly-created Drupal site. Locate the website and click “Create Domain” to add your customized domain.

  • Step 1 Click “Create Domain” to add your customized domain.

  • Step 2 Input the domain name. For example: testsite.com

  • Step 3 Decide if you would like to use our nameservers or not.

    Yes: If you use our nameservers, please set your domain’s nameservers to ns1.cloudclusters.net & ns2.cloudclusters.net.

    No: If you prefer to use your own nameservers, you must make the "www" and "none" DNS A records of your domain point to the IP address we provide in the Control Panel.

    The IP can be viewed here.

  • Step 4 Click Create to add your domain.

Add your DNS records

Only if you use our nameservers, can you manage your DNS records in our Control Panel.

Important: If you didn't use our nameservers and would like to change to ours, please click Enable DNS as illustarted in the following screenshot. In the meantime, you'll need to update the nameservers at your current domain registrar to our nameservers. The changes may take 2-24 hours to propagate.

1. Go to the "Manage DNS" page

Click the icon at the end of the domain you just added, followed by clicking "Manage DNS". The DNS Settings dialog box will appear.

2. Add DNS records

Click Add to add DNS records. We support five DNS record types, including A record, MX record, NX record, TXT record, and CNAME record.

Create an A record

An A record maps a domain name to the IP address (Ipv4) of the computer hosting the domain. By default, The system has created a blank A record and a www A record.

Create an MX record

MX records are used to specify the e-mail server(s) responsible for a domain name.

Before you create the MX record, an A record for the mail domain --"Record Name: mail; IP: Your mail IP" in this example -- should be created first.

Create an NS record

NS records identify the DNS servers authoritative for a zone.

Create a TXT record

TXT records are used to provide the ability to associate arbitrary text with a host or other name

Create a CNAME record

CNAME records can be used to alias a hostname to another hostname.
