There are several different types of DNS records which you might need to change, below is a quick explanation of the most common DNS records;

A Record: IPv4 address record. Matches the domain name to an IPv4 address.

CNAME Record: Canonical name record. Matches the domain name to an alias.

MX Record: Mail Exchange record. Matches the domain name to a list of servers that handle mail for the domain, and tags each server with a priority (the highest priority is 0).

To add a record follow the steps and screenshots below.
