If you already have a Registered Domain Name and you want to use our NS, you need to change your domain name servers to the Veesp name servers. You can do this with your domain registrar’s website. If you do not remember where you registered your domain, you can look it up using “WHOIS”, a protocol that displays domain's identifying information, such as IP address and registration details.
Ordering DNS Hosting
You can easily park your domain on our DNS servers using DNS Hosting service in your Client Area.
How to create new DNS Hosting service:
- Log in to your Client Area
- Click on the DNS Hosting button
- Click on the DNS Hosting link
- Click on the Add domain button
- Enter your domain name
- Click on the Submit button
Update NS records for your domain:
- Sign in to your domain registrar control panel
- Navigate to a Nameserver (NS) record maintenance page. It can be located under 'DNS Management' or 'Name Server Management' sections
- Delete any existing NS records
- For each NS record, enter information according to the entries in the following table:
To point your domain to an IP address
In order to make your website accessible, you need to add DNS Resource Records, such as A-record.
How to add an A-record:
- Log in to your client area
- Choose Domains service
- Click on your domain name
- Click on the DNS Management tab
Enter the domain name you would like to point to an IP address:
@ - used to point a root domain ( ) to the IP address:
@ | A | 22.214.171.124
www - is selected when it is needed to pointto the IP address:
www | A | 126.96.36.199
* - a wildcard record that matches requests for non-existent subdomains. A wildcard DNS record is specified by using a "*" as the part of a domain name, e.g., *..
* | A | 188.8.131.52
- Choose A as Record Type
- Enter an IP address of your server where your website is located in the Address field
- To save settings click on the Save Changes button.
It might take up to 48 hours for newly created records to start working, based on the DNS server the client uses.
DNS Resource Records
Zone DNS database is a collection of resource records and each of the records provides information about a specific object. A list of most common records is provided below:
- Address Mapping records (A)The record A specifies IP address (IPv4) for given host. A records are used for conversion of domain names to corresponding IP addresses.
- IP Version 6 Address records (AAAA)The record AAAA (also quad-A record) specifies IPv6 address for given host. So it works the same way as the A record and the difference is the type of IP address.
- Canonical Name records (CNAME)The CNAME record specifies a domain name that has to be queried in order to resolve the original DNS query. Therefore CNAME records are used for creating aliases of domain names. CNAME records are truly useful when we want to alias our domain to an external domain. In other cases we can remove CNAME records and replace them with A records and even decrease performance overhead.
- Mail exchanger record (MX)The MX resource record specifies a mail exchange server for a DNS domain name. The information is used by Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) to route emails to proper hosts. Typically, there are more than one mail exchange server for a DNS domain and each of them have set priority.
- Name Server records (NS)The NS record specifies an authoritative name server for given host.
- Reverse-lookup Pointer records (PTR)As opposed to forward DNS resolution (A and AAAA DNS records), the PTR record is used to look up domain names based on an IP address.
- Start of Authority records (SOA)The record specifies core information about a DNS zone, including the primary name server, the email of the domain administrator, the domain serial number, and several timers relating to refreshing the zone.
- Text records (TXT)The text record can hold arbitrary non-formatted text string. Typically, the record is used by Sender Policy Framework (SPF) to prevent fake emails to appear to be sent by you.
