Introduction

This page describes how to create, edit and delete DNS records for the domains you add to Templ.

Most DNS records are managed automatically when you add a domain to our panel, or assign it to a website. Those records rarely need to be changed manually.

Some records, however, must be manually created, such as Google site verification records.

Access DNS management

This guide assumes that you have added your domain in our panel, and that the domain is using our name servers.

Start by clicking Domains in the left menu, then click on your domain that you want to access DNS management for.

Scroll down to DNS Management and click Manage DNS.

Create a new DNS record

To create a new DNS record, click the Create button in the top right.

A window will pop up which will let you add new DNS record.

Choose the type of DNS record you want to add then fill in the content of the entry. Remember to add one entry per line if you need to add multiple entries for the same record.

TXT records should be added wrapped in quotes, like this example:

"google-site-verification=VkX8XHiESy97AZcZMEaoufTXErpIkiQyr5c7I_kdpr4"

Click Save when you've added your DNS record and you're done. You may need to wait a few minutes for the DNS to propagate (update) around the world.

The easiest way to check if your DNS records have propagated around the world is to use DNS Checker.


Modify existing DNS records

In the DNS management area, click on the DNS record you want to modify. Some common DNS records that often requires modifications are TXT records and MX records.

Delete a DNS record

In the DNS management area, click on the DNS record you want to delete. In the popup window click Delete in the bottom left to delete the DNS record.

TXT Records

TXT records are a type of DNS record that contains text information for sources outside of your domain. You can use TXT records for various purposes. Google uses them to verify domain ownership and they are also used to ensure email security and deliverability.

MX Records

Mail Exchange (MX) records direct a domain's incoming email. Multiple MX records can be defined for a domain, each with a different priority. If mail can't be delivered using the highest priority record, the second priority record is used, and so on.
