How to Manage DNS from AMP for Cloud VPS

In this guide we will show you how to manage your DNS through your AMP for your Cloud VPS. To use the DNS editor in AMP you need to ensure your domain is pointed to our nameservers. If you registered your domain through us it will be pointed to ours by default.

Adding a Domain

  1. Log into your AMP (Account Management Panel).

  2. Click the Domain Managment button.


    You will then see an Add Domain button and a Manage Domains section.
