Modified on Fri, 09 Feb 2024 at 09:08 AM

Before you get started

  • Make sure you have created a Domain in your account
  • Ensure you have access to your Host Site


How to install CNAME Records

Step 1: Start by logging in to your 123 Reg Control Panel.

Step 2: Next, select Manage All opposite Domains within the ‘All Products and Services’ section.

Step 3: You will now see a complete list of your purchased domain names. Select the domain you want to update from the provided list.

Select Domain

Step 4: If you’re using the current Control Panel, select DNS in the toolbar.

If you’re using the legacy Control Panel, scroll down to the Advanced Domain Settings section and click Manage DNS.

Step 5: If you’re using the current Control Panel, you will now see a list of DNS records for your domain. From here, click Add New Record.

If you’re using the legacy Control Panel, select the Advanced DNS tab near the top.

Step 6: Next, create a new record with the following information: 

(example only)

Once done, click Add or Save to complete the process.

*Important: if the hostname is already in use on a different DNS record, do NOT add it to a new CNAME record. Doing so will affect its functionality or result in the removal of the record using this hostname. Nameservers do not support ‘@’ CNAME records either.



How to install TXT Records

Step 1: Start by logging in to your 123 Reg Control Panel.
Step 2: Next, select Manage All opposite Domains within the ‘All Products and Services’ section.
Step 3: Select the domain you want to update from the provided list.

If you can’t find your domain in this list, you may be able to find it on the Domain Name Overview page within the legacy Control Panel.

Select Domain

Step 4: If you’re using their current Control Panel, select DNS in the navbar. 
If you’re using their legacy Control Panel, scroll down to the Advanced Domain Settings section and select Manage DNS.

Step 5: If you’re using their current Control Panel, you will now see a list of DNS records for your domain. From here, click Add New Record.

If you’re using their legacy Control Panel, select the Advanced DNS tab near the top.

Step 6: Next, create a new TXT record:

Host name
Type
Value
_dmarc.
TXT
v=DMARC1; p=none;
  • TTL: this is how long the record takes to resolve. It should be measured in seconds, for example, one hour equals 3600 seconds, so your TTL would be 3600. We recommend leaving this as Default.

Once done, click Add or Save to complete the process.
