You can manage your DNS records via DNS Zone Editor. To add a new record choose the type of record as A (or scroll to A records section in the old interface).

NOTE:

  • If your domain is pointing elsewhere by NS records, your DNS Zone management is moved to the provider you pointed the domain to and should be managed from there.

What to use as a Host?

If you are adding A records for your domain, insert @ as host.

If you are adding A records for your subdomain, insert the subdomain’s name as a host, for example for subdomain support.hostinger.com you should insert support as a host.

If you wish to add wildcard A record for all of your subdomain, insert * as host.

If you want to access your account via FTP using ftp.youdomain.tld as a host, you need also a record with ftp host and your account’s IP as a value.

What to use as Points to?

Points to is for IP to which you want to point your domain. As a value, you can only add IPv4. If you want to point the domain to IPv6, you need to edit the AAAA record.

NOTE:

What to use as a TTL?

If you haven’t received any requirements for TTL from the service you want to point your domain to, leave a default TTL value.

How to edit or delete A records?

In the list of records you will see these buttons:

  1. Button to delete record completely
  2. Button to edit record

In the old interface, the editing and deleting options will appear as soon as you hover your pointer over the value you want to do changes to:

  1. Button to edit record host, TXT value or TTL
  2. Button to delete record completely
  3. Button to add a new record

Any DNS Record changes trigger propagation, which can last up to 24 hours to fully propagate.
