Knowing how to handle DNS records is essential if you have your own website online. DNS records help you add subdomains, point your website to the proper IP address, manage email server location and verify domain ownership. 

We prepared a list of articles to help you add new DNS records to your domains on any of your WordPress based hosting plans at Skystra.

These could be A, CNAME, MX or TXT records (often used to verify your domain name with Google Search Console).
