How to Grant Administrative Access to Domain Settings & DNS Records

What are DNS Records?

DNS stands for Domain Name System. DNS is the system that routes internet traffic through your domain (ex: company.com) to the IP Address where your website, email, and other web applications are hosted.

Administrative Access

In order to update and manage your DNS records, your website developer or administrator will need to have access to the domain settings, which are typically in the same account where you registered your domain (or in some instances, with a third party provider.)

Below are instructions and links to grant access to DNS settings with some of the most popular domain name providers.
