Before you can manage DNS for a domain from Platform i, the first step is adding it to your account. This guide will show you how to add a domain to Platform i that is not registered here.
Add a Domain Name
If you have a domain that is already registered, you can add it to Platform i which allows you to host and manage the DNS records there. Keep in mind that you can also register a new domain directly with Platform i.
First, update your Nameservers at your Domain Registrar to ns1.inmotionhosting.com and ns2.inmotionhosting.com.
- Login to Platform i.
- Click Domains in the main menu and you will then see the DNS Management section. When you first visit this page it will just say “No DNS” until you add a domain and set the user or team that is associated with it.
- Click the +Add button under DNS Management.
- Click the first dropdown box and choose the user or team that you want to be associated with the domain.
- Enter the Domain Name you want to manage in the next field.
- Click the Add button.
You will then see your domain listed in the DNS Management section.
Congratulations, now you know how to add a domain to Platform i. You can now click the Edit DNS section to add or modify your records, for more information, see our full guide on Managing DNS Records.
