I have only a domain name with WPX. How can I manage my DNS records?

This article is only for the users that do not have hosting services with WPX but have to manage their domain’s DNS zone and add new DNS records.

If your domain already uses the NameServers of WPX or another hosting provider, following the procedure below will reset your active DNS zone. That, of course, will lead to downtime and you’ll have to set the NameServers used before the applied changes.

Step 1. Log in to your WPX account.

You can log in to your WPX account here.

Step 2. Navigate to the Domains menu.

You can either use the My Services (1) → Domains (2) menu option or scroll down and see the list of your domains. You’ll see the Manage domain (3) button, which will take you to the page required for the next steps.

You’ll land on the following page which shows many details about the domain you’ve selected to manage. The Manage Nameservers button will help you both in changing your NameServers or accessing the advanced DNS management to add new DNS records (such as TXT, CNAME, A records, etc.)

Step 3. Manage your DNS records.

The next page you’ll see after clicking on the Manage Nameservers button is the one below, proceed with the Advanced DNS Management.

You’ll see the following warning. Make sure to ignore it if your domain isn’t pointed anywhere using NameServers (to a specific hosting service such as WPX). If that’s not the case and your domain is pointed using NameServers, please make sure to select the Take me back button.

Adding DNS records.

To add a new record, fill in the required information and record type (1) and click on the Save Changes (2) button.

You can select from the following record types:

  • A record
  • AAAA record
  • TXT
  • NS

That’s it! You’ve successfully added a DNS record. All that’s left is to give it some time to propagate. More on the propagation process can be found here.

Deleting DNS records.

It’s as simple as adding a record. Make sure to delete everything in the Hostname (1) section for the record you’d like to remove and proceed with the Save Changes (2)button.

That’s it! You’ve successfully deleted a DNS record.
