But first...

  • This procedure only applies to clients on dedicated servers, or clients with domains using NS1.NEXCESS.NET and NS2.NEXCESS.NET as their nameservers. If your account uses a shared server, refer to How to edit DNS records in SiteWorx.

  • You will need your Client Portal username and password. These were originally provided in the Nexcess Welcome Email, though you may have since changed them. If you cannot locate this information, click Forget Password? on the Client Portal login page or contact the Nexcess Support Team.

Creating DNS zones

  1. Log in to the Client Portal.

  2. From the dashboard, click DNS > DNS Zones.

  1. You will see all current DNS associated with your account. To add a DNS record, click Add Zone.
