BlueberryCMS supports the following types of DNS records:
For apex domains (domain.com)
- A - A basic record that allows you to point your apex domain directly to an IP address.
- MX - This record is required when using email services. It also supports priority numbers. The lowest number takes precedence.
- TXT - These records are often used for domain verification purposes by various providers. They are most commonly used for SPF records to prevent people from spoofing email from your domain.
- Forward - Forwards allow you to forward your entire domain to a URL. These require the full URL such as http://www.domain.com
For subdomains (www.domain.com)
- A - Same as above except used for site.domain.com to point directly to an IP address.
- AAAA - Same as an A record except it is used to point a subdomain to an IPv6 address.
- CNAME - Allows you to point a hostname to another hostname. For example: www.domain.com --> domain.com
- MX - Sub-domains can also have their own MX records for email purposes.
- SRV - Many online providers require the creation of SRV or "service" records. Supported values are: hostname, priority, weight, port. An example of a valid SRV hostname would be: _sip._tls.yourdomain.com where _sip = the service, and _tls = the protocol. It is formed as such: _service._protocol.domain.com
- TXT - Same as above.
- Forward - Same as above.
To get started:
- Navigate to the Projects > Domains page.
- Click on the domain you would like to manage.
- Click the DNS Records tab.
- Review your records.
- If you would like to add or edit any records, click the Update Records button.
- To add records such as CNAME and SRV records create the relevant subdomain first. For example to add an SRV record, create the subdomain first by typing in _service._protocol.domain.com in the subdomain field and then click the Add Subdomain button. Once it displays in the list of subdomains, then you can create the SRV record itself by using the Add Record drop-down menu.
- Once you are finished, click the Save button for the changes to take affect.
- Please note that DNS propagation can sometimes take up to 24 hours.
