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:

  1. Add a DNS record
  2. Edit an existing DNS record
  3. Remove a DNS record
  4. 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
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 (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.

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.
