How to add a DNS record in cPanel

DNS records are used to specify where your website, or areas of your website, should load from on the internet. There are a number of scenarios where you may need to add a DNS record – for example if you need to redirect your mail to a different provider, set a subdomain to load from a different location, or to set up Google verification.

First, we need to login to cPanel.

Once logged in, go to the Zone Editor.
