How to configure your DNS to display your SiteManager website.
In this article
Each domain name comes with DNS data or DNS records, to make sure that all web and mail traffic are sent to the correct servers.
The two most important records we need for setting up our domain are:
- CNAME records
- A records
👉 Head to the control panel of your domain name hosting provider (e.g. Combell, one.com, GoDaddy, ...) to access the DNS records of your domain name.
A CNAME record can map the web address www.example.com to the actual web site for the domain example.com.
Add this CNAME record to your DNS settings
refer www.yourdomain.com to destination dns.sitemn.gr
Test your CNAME:
An A-record links a domain to an IP address. This way, your domain name refers to your hosting account on servers.
Add these 2 A-records to your DNS settings
refer *.yourdomain.com to IP address 22.214.171.124
refer yourdomain.com to IP address 126.96.36.199
Test your A-Record:
Be sure to remove all your previously set A and AAAA-records. Not doing so, could result in your users being redirected to the wrong server.
In some cases, it could be useful to also connect with our IPv6 address. The IPv6 address for our server is fe80::250:56ff:fe97:c2f3/64. In most cases this shouldn't be necessary, but you could add this as an AAAA-record if needed.
Set your TTL as low as possible.
Lower values mean your DNS gets updated more quickly — which means if you make changes to where your website is hosted, they take effect more quickly.
Take in mind it can take some time before any DNS changes take effect. For an A-record or CNAME it could easily take up to 24 hours.
Always be careful when deleting already existing records, if you're not 100% sure contact your hosting support.
