Welcome aboard! First off, thanks for choosing Constellix to help you optimize and manage your traffic. We recommend going through the following tutorials to get your account set up and learn the basics of Constellix DNS.

#3 Commit Your Changes
Once you’ve added all the necessary domains and records, you will want to commit your changes. This allows you to stage your changes (like deleting and adding records simultaneously) before moving them to production.
All changes made to configurations within the control panel must be committed before they are live on the Constellix DNS name servers.
#4 Update your registrar
This is the most important step! You need to tell you domain registrar (where you bought your domain name) that Constellix is now authoritative for your DNS hosting. Log into your registrar’s control panel and delegate your domain’s nameservers to Constellix.
Before you move forward, make sure your domain is properly delegated to Constellix nameservers. You can use dig (command line tool) or our free web app Sonar Lite to check delegation.
#5 Take a Tour
Now that you’ve added your domains, let’s take a quick tour of Constellix DNS and learn about the different services we offer.
