How to configure DNS records in SiteWorx

Overview
This article explains how Nexcess clients on physical (non-cloud) servers can use SiteWorx to add, edit, and delete DNS records.

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.

This method only works for Nexcess clients on physical (non-cloud) servers.
