Creating a DNS Template in Storefront Manager

A DNS Template is a set of DNS records to be automatically applied to new domain registrations.

You can create and apply a DNS template to any new domain registrations under your Storefront. For instance, if you wish all new domain registrations in your Storefront to have a particular CNAME record, you can achieve this using a DNS template.

Creating and activating a DNS template

DNS templates can be created and applied to new domain registrations. For a DNS template to be active, your Storefront must use Storefront nameservers.

  1. Log into Storefront Manager.
  2. Select the Account icon followed by Storefront Settings.
