Hi all. I realize this is a simple thing but I feel like I know just enough about DNS to possibly mess things up! And other responses here don’t “quite” answer my questions.
I need to add a DNS record to enable access to a new subdomain (staging site) at my host, titled staging3.[mydomain].com . I’ve added a CNAME record that points to the first of 2 IP addresses provided by them. My questions:
- Is CNAME the correct type of record to add or should it be an A record? (I chose CNAME)
- Do I need to add a record for each of the two nameservers? (I’ve just added one)
- Should the Proxy Status be DNS Only (grey cloud) or Proxied (orange cloud)? (I’ve set it to DNS Only).
Really appreciate any clarity you can provide. Thanks!
