What is a name server record

domains, dns, name server

A name server record is used to 'delegate' a domain (or sub-domain) to a DNS service. By having your name servers 'pointing' towards the DNS service this authorises the service to serve records for your domain, and until the records match those required by the service no DNS records will be served to the public internet for your domain.

To configure your domain for use with our DNS services, follow this article to use the default selection.

If you do not have your domain registered with Hosting Cloud, use the following name servers instead:

  • ns1.hostingcloud.com.au
  • ns2.hostingcloud.com.au

You will need to allow up to 24-48 hours for DNS to resolve correctly after changing NS records.
