Managing your DNS records
Mlytics provides a user-friendly platform to let you manage your DNS records efficiently.
To manage your DNS records, go to ‘ DNS’ > ‘DNS Records’. Then choose your target site using the ‘Site panel’ on the operation level panel.
You can manage your DNS records in 4 ways:
- Add a DNS record
- Edit an existing DNS record
- Remove a DNS record
- Activate and deactivate Multi CDN
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
- Value: RDATA, the data that is returned during a DNS search
Editing a DNS record
To edit an existing DNS record, hover your cursor over a DNS record. Click on the ‘ Edit’ button (arrow down 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 ‘Save’ button once finished.
Removing a DNS record
To remove an existing DNS record, hover your cursor over a DNS record. Click on the ‘Edit’ button (arrow down icon) on the right side. On the lower left of the panel you will see the ‘ Delete’ button.
Once clicked, the system will ask for confirmation. It will delete the record after the confirmation.
Activate/deactivate Multi CDN of a domain
To activate or deactivate the Multi CDN function for a domain (or DNS record), hover your cursor over a DNS record, and simply toggle the switch on or off.
Turning on will activate Multi CDN for the domain.
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.
