DNS records are mapping files that tell the DNS server which IP address each domain is associated with, and how to handle requests sent to each domain. There are several different types of records to generate different outcomes. If you aren’t sure what kind of record you need, ask your web host or domain administrator.
To create DNS records at Uniregistry, you must use Uniregistry’s name servers. Changing your name servers will affect any exisitng records set for your domain, like for a website or email. If your name servers are set outside of Uniregistry.com, be sure you want to change them before proceeding. If you don’t want to change your name servers, then you should add your DNS record(s) through the portal where your name servers are located.
