Deluxe Linux Hosting DNS Manager

Hi There

 

I've got deluxe linux hosting that I'm in the process of setting up, but I can't add DNS records - it only allows me to add MX records.

 

My domains are through other providers and need to stay that way at least until I've migrated the sites for now, and I'd prefer to delegate the domains to GoDaddy nameservers then manage the DNS inside cPanel.

 

Deluxe hosting says it works with external domains and includes DNS manager, what am I missing here?

Also, is there a way to find out what the GoDaddy nameservers would be to use with the hosting / are they generic?

Unlike most providers that have you manage your DNS via the cPanel account (which can cause issues in the future if you delete the hosting account) GoDaddy has your use their domain manager - this is where you manage both domain registrations and DNS settings

 

If you goto https://dcc.godaddy.com there is a DNS menu - then select DNS Hosting and you should be good to go
