Step 4. Update DNS settings

Last Updated: Apr 10, 2017

Rerouting traffic to Anti-DDoS Pro is available once all configuration is completed.

  • If your service does not need a domain name, directly update the server’s IP address by replacing it with the virtual IP address provided by Anti-DDoS Pro.

  • If your service needs a domain name, go to your DNS configuration panel. Choose either CNAME or A record to update the former DNS record, depending on your DNS service provider’s configuration. Traffic is then redirected to another virtual IP address (for example, backup IP address) or to the origin in order to minimize additional problems.

Note: Although both CNAME and A record are supported for rerouting traffic, it is strongly recommended to choose CNAME rather than A record to ensure a higher success rate.

  • CNAME

    Update the former DNS record with the generated CNAME. The former A record can be deleted.

    The recommended TTL value is 10 minutes.

  • A Record

    Update the former A Record with the virtual IP address provided by Anti-DDoS Pro. If multiple virtual IP addresses are available, the domain name can be resolved to a different virtual IP address. This is based on different ISPs.

    The recommended TTL value is 10 minutes.
