DNS SERVICE

DNS Service can be very confusing - it is for more advanced users. If you are looking to change the DNS servers for a domain, that is not done through DNS Service. Please click on the DNS link to change the DNS Name Servers for your domain.

If, though, you are the advanced user who has a Mail Exchange or website hosted on your computer, for example, let us be your nameserver! We will host your domain, and you can use our DNS Service tool to specify an MX Record, a CNAME Record or ANAME Record. You will still be responsible for configuring your mail or website server host, but we can allow you to specify the IP address or hostname of that host.

CREATE NAME SERVERS

You can create a nameserver that is based on your domain. You first have to create the new nameserver, and then you can add the new nameserver to the list of nameservers for your domain.

To create a custom nameserver

  1. Click Manage, and log in to your account
  2. Beside the domain for which you want to create a custom nameserver, click DNS.
  3. Click the link at the bottom of the Name Servers section, in the sentence If you would like to create custom nameservers based on your domain, click here.
    The Edit Custom Nameservers window appears.
  4. Click Add Record.
  5. In the Subdomain field, enter the name of custom nameserver.
  6. In the IP Address field, enter the corresponding IP address.
  7. Click Save.
  8. If you want to use the new nameserver with this domain, click the link at the bottom of the Custom Nameservers section, in the sentence If you would like to configure your domain to use these servers, click here.
    The Edit DNS Settings page appears.
  9. In the Name Servers section, click Add Name Server.
  10. Enter the name of the custom nameserver that you just created.
  11. Click Save.

 

Some Frequently Asked Questions:

1. Is this where I change my DNS records?
No, that can be done  through the domain manager, using the DNS link.

2. I'm totally confused...
If you are not familiar with these technical terms, don't worry! These are for the advanced user. Most people will be just fine with DNS from their website hosts, or our forwarding services, and won't need to use DNS Service at all.

3. How do I set up a Mail Exchange server/ Website Hosting server?
The DNS Service is similar to the Change DNS/Hosting link, in that we allow you to specify the DNS servers of your host, but it is still up to your host to configure everything properly. With DNS Service, you can specify the IP address or hostname of your MX Record, CNAME Record or ANAME Record, but it is still up to you to configure everything else.

4. Who will be hosting my domain/website/email?
We will host your domain, and will allow you to specify the IP address or hostname of your MX Record, CNAME Record or ANAME Record. You will be responsible for the hosting and configuration of your website or email, of course.

5. Is there anything I can't do?
Due to traffic restrictions, we strictly prohibit the sending of unsolicited email promoting any domain hosted on our DNS servers.
