Manage DNS Records in Plesk

Our Windows Hosting comes with a free DNS management tool to help you connect your domain to your website or email.

This guide will explain how you can add, remove, and edit your DNS settings in your Windows hosting manager or Plesk Panel.

How to Manage the DNS Records in Plesk

To manage the applicable DNS records, follow these steps:

  1. Access the Plesk DNS Zone.
  2. Select the specific record that you want to manage and perform the necessary steps:

  3. For the Plesk DNS settings to work, ensure that the domain name is connected to the following name servers:

    • ns1.syrahost.com
    • ns2.syrahost.com

    See our guide on How To Change the Name Servers of My Domain.

  4. Wait for the DNS change to fully resolve on the internet.
  5. IMPORTANT : Changes to the Name Servers and DNS records will take two to four hours to fully work on the internet. However, some ISPs have their TTL duration that could override our maximum DNS resolution time. It may cause the changes to take up to 24-48 hours to fully work.
