General guidelines for managing DNS records:

  1. The @ type record corresponds to the full domain name with the full stop at the end for which records are being changed.
  2. The domain-name.com. (with the full stop at the end) record means the full name of a domain.
  3. The domain (without the full stop at the end) means the subdomain name. This subdomain is correspondent to domain for which records are being changed. It means that transmitting records to DNS this record will be accepted as domain.domain-name.com. (with the full stop at the end).
  4. A record: type the full name of your domain in the correspondent field, e.g.: @ or domain.com. (with the full stop at the end), or subdomain name, e.g.: www or mail (without the full stop at the end). Type the server IP address in the field “Address, e.g.:5.9.2.148 (without the full stop at the end), you have to correspondent the host name to it.
  5. СNAME: specify the full name of your domain in the “Name” field: @ or domain name, e.g., www (without the full stop at the end). Type the domain name in the “Address” field, e.g., any-domain.com. (with the full stop at the end)or full subdomain name, e.g., sub.any-domain.com. (with a full stop at the end), where the request will be redirected.
  6. MX: indicate the number corresponding to the priority of the record in the field “Priority”, e.g.: 0 or 101 (the lower the number is the higher the priority is). Type the domain name (e.g., @ or any-domain.com. (with a full stop at the end) or a full name of the subdomain where the request will be redirected (e.g., sub.domain-name.com) in the “Address” field.
  7. TXT: specify the full domain name (@) or the subdomain name (e.g., www without the full stop at the end) in the “Name” field. Type any Latin symbols (up to 255) to the “Address” field.
