How to Manage DNS Records in cPanel


Customer-UK – horrible service – I hold an account with #Justhost and I wanted to renew my account. For the last 3 days I called them and emailed them with no luck. They transferred me to billings, renewals, technical team and back finding different excuses to delay the process and force me to pay an outrageous renewal invoice. Once they get you in the loop, they ask for some unconsiderable renewal prices and are terribly unhelpful on the phone. If you want to talk to a supervisor, they are not available. I have never experienced such a bad customer service. I would rather find a different domain and host provider than stay with them.


Wondering how to manage and update your DNS record in cPanel? We walk you through the exact steps in this video tutorial!

08:52 Outro

Just an FYI, in most cases you won’t need to manage your DNS records, as they are normally set up automatically by cPanel, however, if you’re using GSuite or another external email service provider, you may need to change your MX records manually.
