Update / Add DNS Records and Subdomains in Ezoic

Your website is like a house – it needs a clear address for visitors to find it. That’s where DNS records come in. They act like signposts on the internet, directing users to the right place. But what exactly are they, and how can you manage them effectively? This guide will unveil the world of DNS records and empower you to take control of your website’s traffic flow.

DNS: The Unsung Hero of Your Website

Imagine a visitor typing your website address into their browser. Behind the scenes, a complex dance unfolds. The DNS, or Domain Name System, acts like a phonebook for the internet. It translates your easy-to-remember domain name (like ) into a numerical IP address that computers understand. This IP address points to the physical location of your website’s files on a server.

When you integrate your webite with Ezoic via name servers or Cloudflare, Ezoic will act as a proxy between your own website and your website visitors. Because of this, it is very important that your DNS records here at Ezoic (Dashboard > Settings > DNS Settings) should bealways up to date and match exactly with the records you have over at your current hosting company.

There are different types of DNS records, each playing a specific role:

  • A Records: These are the workhorses, directing visitors to the main server hosting your website.
  • CNAME Records: Think of these as aliases. They point a subdomain (like [invalid URL removed]) to another website.
  • MX Records: Crucial for email, these records tell the world where to deliver your website’s emails.

Keeping Your Website Running Smoothly: Why Updates Matter

DNS records are like traffic signs – they need to be accurate and up-to-date. If your records point to the wrong place, visitors might end up in a digital dead-end. Here’s where platforms like Ezoic come in.

Ezoic acts as an intermediary between your website and visitors, potentially optimizing content delivery and ad experiences. For this to work seamlessly, your DNS records in Ezoic’s dashboard need to mirror those set by your hosting provider.

Ezoic’s user-friendly interface makes managing DNS records a breeze. You can easily add new records, edit existing ones, or upload them in bulk using a CSV file. Here’s a quick walkthrough:

Expanding Your Digital Landscape: Adding Subdomains

Subdomains are prefixes you add before your main domain name, like “shop” in [invalid URL removed]. These can be created by adding a new DNS record with the desired subdomain name in the “Name” field.

Switching Homes: DNS Considerations When Changing Hosting Providers

Generally, switching hosting providers shouldn’t disrupt your website’s accessibility. Most providers allow you to use custom nameservers, meaning you can update the IP address in your DNS records to point to your new host. However, if you’re using Ezoic, remember to update the records in your Ezoic dashboard first, ensuring everything stays in sync.

Simplifying Integration: DNS with Cloudflare

If you’re using Cloudflare for additional website security or performance optimization, things get even easier. When integrated with Ezoic via Cloudflare, Ezoic acts as the main proxy. Any DNS updates you need to make should be done within the Ezoic dashboard first. These changes will then automatically propagate to Cloudflare, keeping everything streamlined.
