Managing your DNS records

Mlytics provides a user-friendly platform to let you manage your DNS records efficiently. You can manage your DNS records, go to ‘Site’ > choose a site > ‘DNS records’.

You can manage your DNS records in 4 ways:

  1. Add a DNS record
  2. Edit an existing DNS record
  3. Remove a DNS record
  4. Activate and deactivate Multi CDN for a particular domain (DNS record)

Adding a DNS record

To add a new DNS record to your site, click the ‘Add record’ button.

You can configure 3 fields:

  • Type: the type of record you’re adding
  • Record name: the namespace that will be called during a query
  • TTL: time-to-live, the length of time for which the DNS record will be cached

To learn more about different types of DNS records and record fields, read this article.

Editing a DNS record

To edit an existing DNS record, hover your cursor over a DNS record. Click on the ‘Edit’ button (pen icon) on the right side.

On this page, you can modify the details of a DNS record, such as record name, TTL, and value (RDATA), but record type cannot be changed. 

Click the ‘Create’ button once finished. 

Removing a DNS record

To remove an existing DNS record, hover your over a DNS record and you will find the ‘Delete’ button (trash can icon). Once clicked, the system will ask for confirmation. It will delete the record after confirming.

Activate/deactivate Multi CDN

To activate or deactivate the Multi CDN function for a domain (or DNS record), simply toggle the switch. Turning on will activate Multi CDN for the domain (or DNS record).

You can turn on/off Multi CDN at any time, but you have to monitor the availability of your domain, as turning off Multi CDN for a domain may sometimes cause unexpected issues.
