How to set up A Record for your domain or subdomain

These records are used to point domains or subdomains to IP addresses. An A Record is one of the most fundamental types of DNS record you can create because it connects a domain name that is easy to remember, to an internet address.

You use an A Record when you want to connect to an external service or IP address such as 164.52.197.71. Assuming you are using cPanel to manage your DNS, you can create an A Record to be used within the Worx application, follow these steps:
  • Sign in to your cPanel Account.

  • Under the "Domains" section, click on the "Zone Editor" icon.


  • Search or Select your domain from the list provided and click on the + A RECORD button.
    • Enter the desired name e.g. sms.uwaziimobile.com
    • Enter the Worx IP address i.e. 164.52.197.71

  • Press the ADD AN A RECORD button to save your changes.
