How to set DNS record for .my domain?

Custom Short Domain by Pro

Currently I have seven .my domains that I bought from Mercumaya. All of them are not active (contain no website). But there is one .my domain that I want to use for my bitly.ProCustom Short Domain.

To use this service, I have to set my DNS A record to point to their IP address. But the problem is, there is no option for me to set the DNS A record from the domain registrar (MyNIC Domain Registry).

Luckily, I have DNS Zone Editor in my cPanel and I can set the DNS A record from there. Here I will show you how to set DNS record for .my domain by using cPanel.

Add the domain using Addon Domains

Step 1 – From your cPanel, add the .my domain into your hosting account by using Addon Domains tool.

Click on Advanced DNS Zone Editor

Step 2 – Next, back to your cPanel Home and go to Advanced DNS Zone Editor.

Select the domain

Step 3 – Choose the .my domain that you want to change the DNS record. In my case, it is domain.

Step 4 – cPanel will list down all current DNS records for your .my domain. From here, you can choose either to edit or add new DNS record.

Enter the IP address to setup A record

Step 5 – I want to change the A record for domain to point to bitly.Pro IP address, . So I click on Edit and replace the IP address with the new one.

After it has finished propagated

Step 6 – Lastly, click on Edit Record and wait the domain to propagate.

Hope this helps!

Note: You also can set CNAME record in Advanced DNS Zone Editor (or Simple DNS Zone Editor).

    This was incredibly helpful – once I’d negotiated the nameservers melarky I got it sorted thanks to your guidance. The only thing I’d mention is that each stage can take a little while to propagate, so it’s not instant! Thanks again.

  6. Thanks for your kind information. I have very happy

  7. Hi,

    Is there anyway I can retrieve my DNS settings that are no longer on my host anymore? Someone transferred them onto their host & now I cannot get in contact with them to transfer them back to me!


  8. At the end of the day we all have to spend our bills.

  9. Fantastic blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or
    go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m
    totally overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Bless you!
