How to configure DNS records in SiteWorx

How to configure DNS records in SiteWorx

Overview
This article explains Nexcess clients can use SiteWorx to add, edit, and delete DNS records for their domain.

But first...

  • Use this procedure only if your nameservers are DNSXXX-1.NEXCESS.NET and DNSXXX-2.NEXCESS.NET, or if your account uses a shared server environment, or your changes will have no effect.

    If you are unsure, identify your nameservers by performing a WHOIS lookup on your domain. If your domain uses NS1.NEXCESS.NET and NS2.NEXCESS.NET, use the procedure outlined in How to configure DNS records in the Client Portal.

    If your domain uses neither of the above, Nexcess does not manage your DNS. Contact the organization responsible for managing your DNS to make the necessary changes.

  • This method only works for Nexcess Classic (non-Cloud) clients.
