Accessing DNS records hosted by Coreware in AWS

Created by Jeff Cummins, Modified on Thu, 31 Aug 2023 at 12:06 PM by Carrie Despaux

If you have chosen Option #1 for your DNS for coreFORCE Basic or Standard (having Coreware host your DNS), you can, optionally, have an account created so that you can log in to edit your own DNS records.  This article explains how to access your DNS records.

You will receive the following information from Coreware support:

  1. A URL that goes directly to your DNS zone records.
  2. An account ID for login
  3. A username for login
  4. A temporary password

1. Click the URL provided to go to the AWS console

This URL will look something like this: (this is just an example)

Instead of XXXXXXX your URL will have the Zone identifier for your specific DNS zone.

It may be helpful to bookmark this link in your browser since you will need it every time you want to access your DNS.

2. Choose to login as an IAM user and enter the provided Account ID

3. Enter your username and password

4. Be sure to stay within the area you have permission to access

After logging in you, you will be redirected to the page for your DNS zone.  

IMPORTANT: you only have permission to view or edit records in your zone.  If you click any links outside of the red box in the screenshot below, you will get stuck in an error loop and will be unable to get back to the area you have rights to see.  If that happens, go back to your provided URL (step 1 above).
