Welcome to Constellix! This guide is an overview of our DNS dashboard and will help you familiarize yourself with our platform and features. We’ll be covering the main features of the dashboard and the menu options in the sidebar.
When you log in to Constellix DNS, you will automatically be taken to the main home page of the DNS dashboard, which contains the following information/options:
a) Switch between Constellix apps
Clicking on the white grid icon in the upper left corner of the dashboard screen will allow you to switch to another app in Constellix:
b) Toggle sidebar
To minimize or expand the side menu on the left, click the toggle menu next to the Constellix logo at the top left of the screen.
If there are any notifications for your domain(s), you will see them displayed in a yellow bar at the top of the dashboard.
In this section, you will see information about new or upgraded products and services.
e) Current service usage statistics
The current service usage section gives you a quick overview of all the services and configurations you are using in your Constellix account such as:
f) DNS query activity
This section lets you see a quick view of query activity for all domains in your account in the last 30 days.
g) Recently updated domains
In this section, you will see a list of the most recently updated domains in your account, as well as the date they were last modified. You can quickly access domains from this section by clicking on the desired domain, or by clicking “View All” if the domain you are looking for isn’t listed here.
h) Uncommitted changes
This section shows whether you have any uncommitted changes for a domain(s) and when the change occurred. This is extremely helpful, as DNS changes do not take effect until they are committed. If there are a lot of uncommitted changes, you will have the option to View All to review them.
i) Add domains to your account
New domain wizard
If you need to add a domain to your account, our domain wizard will walk you through it step-by-step.
Add a domain manually
You also have the option to add a domain manually.
j) Account notifications and log-out option
The bell icon on the upper right-hand corner of the dashboard will alert you to any account notifications, including uncommitted changes. Just click the icon to expand the notifications.
To log out of your account, just click on your username in the upper right-hand corner of the dashboard.
In the lefthand menu, you will see your configuration choices, as well as other miscellaneous options:
a) Managed DNS
Click on Managed DNS to expand your DNS configuration options, which include the following:
If you are using our Multi-CDN solution, this is where you find the options to add SSL certificates (for https) and to set up your configuration.
When you expand options for advanced, you will see a variety of configuration options that can be used for your domain(s).
The configuration menu includes a variety of options for miscellaneous domain tasks.
This button will take you straight to our learning center, where you can find guides for our features.
