  5. Copy the address of your Dedicated Domain address from the Domains tab in Voluum and provide it into the  field.

    Caution

    Voluum Note: All domains assigned to your account you can find in the Domains tab in Voluum. If the Dedicated Domain is already available on your account, you need to point to the Dedicated Domain. Otherwise, you should provide a name of one of the Voluum legacy domains.

  6. Select the Custom time from the TTL (Time To Live, i.e. time to propagate all changes through the network) drop-down menu and set it to the lower value in the Seconds field, for example: "60" seconds, for faster DNS settings propagation.
