Setting up other Custom DNS Records

If your domain is on our nameservers then you can use your UKServers Account Manager under Domains > DNS Editor to setup and have your custom DNS records.

Common examples of Custom DNS Records

1. Setting up a TXT record

Click the Add domain record button.

Then select ‘Type’ as TXT using the dropdown. Put the actual TXT record value into the Address field. Then click Add record.

If you see the ‘Enable custom DNS‘ button then click this to make it say ‘Disable custom DNS’. This will mean your DNS settings have now been enabled.

Allow 30 minutes for changes made (or after enabling) to take effect.

Once entered into the Account Manager > DNS Editor it would look something like this:

The value in the Address field should end with a dot character or else it will be relative to the domain.

If you see the ‘Enable custom DNS‘ button then click this to make it say ‘Disable custom DNS’. This will mean your DNS settings have now been enabled.

Allow 30 minutes for changes made (or after enabling) to take effect.
