Adding DNS records and templates

Last Updated: Jul 04, 2017

Sometimes, adding DNS records can be confusing, especially with so many options for using your domain name out there. To make the process a little easier, we’ve added a few pre-made DNS templates. In addition to finding templates for all of your Name.com products, you’ll also see templates for popular website builders and email providers, including Google Apps, Tumblr, Blogger/Blogspot, Squarespace, and Office 365. 

To add a DNS template, follow these steps:

  1. Log into your Name.com account, click My Account and click My Domains on the top left.

  2. Click the domain name you want to add the DNS records to.
  3. On the left, you’ll see a column of options for managing your domain. Click DNS Records.
  4. Click the blue DNS Templates button.
  5. Select the template you want from the drop-down menu that appears and click Confirm.

Note: Some templates will ask you to enter some extra information, like the subdomain or verification key. You will need to get this information from your hosting or email provider.

If you get an error on the DNS Management page that says WARNING!, this means that you are not currently using Name.com’s nameservers. If you are not using Name.com's nameservers then you cannot successfully use our DNS records, and so our DNS templates won’t work. Please click Update Nameservers to use our nameservers, then follow the instructions here.
