How to add a domain record using the Tera-byte DNS control panel
The Tera-byte DNS control panel is a very powerful tool allowing
you to use many features of DNS through a simple web interface.
This document describes a standard DNS setup which is suitable for
hosting web sites on the RaQ server. For the example, we'll discuss
someone with the username "testuser" who wants to host "testdomain.com"
on her RaQ server which has the IP address 10.0.0.1
Step 1: log in
Go to http://www.tera-byte.com/config and
enter your username and password.
You will then see the main DNS control panel screen.
Step 2: add the domain name
Click on the "DNS administrator", enter the domain name you would
like to add and click "add".
Note: a domain name has the form "testdomain.com" not "www.testdomain.com".
Enter the IP address of the domain.
You will then see the domain overview.
Step 3: add the MX record
The MX record specifies where to deliver mail for the domain. Under
normal circumstances, it should be delivered to the RaQ server. Click
on "Add MX" and use 5 for the preference.
Step 4: add the wildcard
Under the standard configuration, all subdomains are set to the
same IP address as the main domain. Click on "add" next to the "non-matching
DNS requests are not forwarded" text. This is more efficient than
adding A records for each subdomain.
Step 5: add A and MX records for www
Because of the way the RaQ servers work, we must specify A and
MX records for the www subdomain. Click on "add A record" and set
www to the same IP as the main domain.
Now add the MX record like we did before.
The DNS configuration for testdomain.com is now complete. Allow
one day for the changes to take effect and the site should start
resolving (assuming that you have added it on the RaQ itself).
