Editing DNS records (Vesta Control Panel)

While Vesta automatically generates the common DNS records for a domain when you add a Web Domain, Mail Domain, or DNS Domain, it does provide the opportunity to edit records as needed.

Editing the Domain information

Step 1: Log into Vesta at YourServerIP:8083 on your server. 

Step 2: Click on the DNS section of the header.

Step 3: Move your mouse pointer over the domain you wish to edit, and click the Edit button in the top right of that section.

Step 4: Adjust the IP address, Template, SOA (master nameserver) or TTL for the record as necessary, then click Save.

Displaying and editing existing DNS records

Follow Steps 1 and 2 above to get to the DNS section of Vesta.

Step 3: Move your mouse pointer over the domain you wish to see the records for, and click List X Records in the top right of that section.

This will show all the records Vesta has for the domain.

Step 4: If you wish to edit an existing record, move your mouse pointer over it and click the Edit button.

Step 5: Adjust the IP or Value, and optionally Priority and click Save.

Adding DNS records

Follow Steps 1 and 2 above to get to the DNS section of Vesta.

Step 3: Move your mouse pointer over the domain you wish to add a record to, and click Add Record in the top right of that section.

  • Record will be the ‘name’ of the record, e.g. ‘www’ for a WWW CNAME or @ for records affecting the whole domain.

  • IP or Value will be the target IP of an A record or alias domain of a CNAME.
