Welcome to the Freeola Internet customer support pages. This guide is designed to help with changing the DNS (Domain Name Servers) for a Freeola hosted domain name. For more internet help topics please visit our main Support Guides Page.

If you need to use domain hosting services provided by a different company, and you do not wish to transfer management of the domain name to them, you can change the DNS servers. Freeola currently offers its domain customers the option of completing a full DNS change, A, CNAME or MX Record change or creating a subdomain. This guide is designed for a full DNS change, if you were looking to make a more advanced, A, CNAME or MX Record change, or wish to set-up subdomains, please click here.

The following procedure assumes that you are already logged into your MyFreeola account.

  1. From the left-hand menu select DNS Records (A/MX/SPF/TXT) then DNS Settings.
