How to add a new DNS record to your Hostinger account

One of the steps needed in order to set up one instance is for you (our Subscriber) to add a new DNS record to their domain. You can learn more about DNS here.

To change the DNS on your Hostiger account, please follow these steps:

  1. Log into your Hostinger account (if you are not logged in already).

  2. Click on domain and locate the domain you wish to add the new record (in case you have more than 1 domain).

  3. Click the arrow on the right of the domain.

  4. Right on top of DNS/Nameservers, you will see the domain nameservers, and below it, a section to choose between configuring DNS records, Child nameservers or DNSSEC. Click DNS records.

  5. Select the DNS record type, type into the Name field the information we have/will provide on the email. We refer to this as Host on our email. On the "Points to" field, paste the info provided on the email.

  6. Click Add record.

Once these settings have been saved, you have successfully changed the DNS records for your domain. These changes may take 1 - 4 hours to propagate throughout the web.
