Manage DNS records

DNS records (or DNS resource records) contain service information about the domain name (e.g. the mail gateway address or the IP address of a website located on the domain).

You can manage your DNS records on the website of your DNS hosting provider (the company that provides DNS servers for your domain). If you delegated your domain to Yandex servers, use the Yandex.Connect DNS editor to manage your DNS records.

Note. If you confirmed that you own the domain, you can use the DNS editor to add DNS records before delegating the domain to Yandex servers. However, they will only become active once you delegate your domain.

      • If your subdomain name says bar.yourdomain.tld, enter bar into the Host field

      • If your subdomain name says foo.bar.yourdomain.com, enter foo.bar into the Host field
