How do I change my domain’s DNS records?

If you need to change the DNS records for a domain name registered with Freeparking and using the Freeparking Name Servers, you can do this through the My Account section on our website.

Log in to your account and go to the Services section.

Click on Manage for the domain name you wish to change the DNS records for.

Click on the Service Management tab and then click the Modify button in the Name Server Records section.

You will then see various sections for the common types of DNS records. “A” records, “CNAME” records and “MX” records. Make the appropriate changes and click the Continue button at the bottom of the page. The requested changes will be displayed for you to review and you then need to click the Finish button to apply the changes.

For 'A' Records you will need to know the IP Address of the web or mail server you need your domain name to point to, or in the case of 'MX' Records, you will need the name of the mail server. If you only have an IP Address for a mail server, we recommend pointing the MX Record to mail.yourname.co.nz, and then creating an A Record to point mail.yourname.co.nz to the IP Address of the mail server.

To add or edit other "advanced" DNS record types use the Modify Advanced Records option at the bottom of the page.
