Setting up DNS for Google Apps usage
Go to https://register.dotarai.com and login to your account. Select the Domain (1.1) tab to bring up a list of your domains, along with the available options to view their details. Click on the View (1.2) button next to the domain name that you wish to edit to bring up the domain’s information.
2. Check to see if your Name Servers are set to ns1.dotarai.com and ns2.dotarai.com. If so, you may proceed to Step 4. If not, you may adjust your name servers in Step 3. If you are using the third party Name Server provider, you must contact your provider to setup the DNS or zone file for Google Apps usage.
3. In order to set your Name Servers as ns1.dotarai.com and ns2.dotarai.com, you may do so by clicking the Name Server (3.1) menu and type in these Name Server addresses into the Name Server (3.2) fields. After that, press save (3.3).
4. Click on the ‘zone file’ (4.1) menu. Then, fill in the CNAME, A, or MX values that you would like to record. When you have filled up each field, click on add (4.2), and press save (4.3) when you have completed adding the values.
