2. In the Domains section, click on the Zone Editor icon.


3. Under Domains, you can see many options below the Actions text.



4. Click on the A Record, and a small window will pop open. Please enter the required details in it.
Name: Enter the name you wish to add, for example, add a blog and the cPanel will automatically add a domain name like blog.example.com.
Address: Enter the IP Address of the server.

 

5. Now click on the Add an A Record button.

Congratulations, You have successfully added A Record. The DNS propagation can take up to 24 hours.
