Advanced DNS Zone Editor: "To add a record:

Time to live specifies how long a particular record should be kept in memory, in seconds, before it should be refreshed.
Select a record type:
An A record is the DNS record that is responsible for mapping hostnames to IP addresses. The A record is essential because it allows DNS servers to identify and locate your website and its various services on the Internet. Without an A record, your visitors will not be able to access your website, FTP servers, or email accounts. Remember: cPanel will have configured your DNS records so that visitors will be able to resolve your website and its services (FTP, Email, etc.). A records should only be added when you add a service that is not provided by cPanel or your web host."
