Adding and Modifying DNS Records

For each new domain name, Plesk automatically creates a DNS zone in accordance with the settings configured by your service provider. The domain names should work fine with the automatic configuration. However, if you use Plesk NS server and need to perform custom modifications in the domain name zone, you can do that in your control panel.

To view the resource records in a DNS zone of a domain, go to Websites & Domains

Click on Hosting & DNS

Click on DNS

Using External DNS Servers

If you host websites on your account and do not want to use Plesk as your primary DNS server, you have the following options:

  • Use Plesk name server as a secondary name server. Choose this option if you have a standalone name server acting as a primary name server for your websites.
  • Disable DNS for your domain in Plesk. Choose this option if you have external primary and secondary name servers that are authoritative for your websites.

To switch the Plesk DNS server to a secondary name server, go to Websites & Domains > DNS Settings and click Switch to Secondary.

To revert the Plesk DNS server to the primary name server, go to Websites & Domains > DNS Settings and click Switch to Primary.

To switch off Plesk‚Äôs DNS service for a site served by external name servers, go to Websites & Domains > DNS Settings and click Disable.
