DNS

CyberPanel ships with a DNS server, which lets you do following things:

  • Create Nameservers.
  • Create DNS Zone.
  • Delete Zone.
  • Add/Delete Records.

Create Nameservers

There is a dedicated page which lets you create Name Servers. If you use this page to create name servers than DNS Zone for this domain will also be created.

This page is a simply utility to create name servers in a user friendly way. DNS zone for this domain will automatically be created, all you have to do is fill all the fields, example values can be:

  • Domain Name: cyberpanel.net
  • First Nameserver: ns1.cyberpanel.net
  • IP Address (First NS): 192.168.100.1
  • Second Nameserver: ns2.cyberpanel.net
  • IPAddress (Second NS): 192.168.100.2

After creating name servers on your server, you have to create or register glue records, you can read the article below for more information:

Replace these with the one you created, after completing these steps you can create DNS Zones or Add/Delete records.
