You can use the following name servers to delegate your domain to CustomDNS
- ns1.nicmus.com — 126.96.36.199
- ns2.nicmus.com — 188.8.131.52
- ns3.nicmus.com — 184.108.40.206
Delegation can take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours depending on your registrar.
We support the types supported by PowerDNS. However, DNSSEC is not supported at this time.
Due to potential for abuse, our name servers are authoritative only - that is they do not answer queries for domains not delegated to us.
Yes, wild card records are fully supported. Wild cards in records are considered an advanced feature and require in-depth knowledge of DNS.
E-mail forwarding is provided by the "MBOXFW" record type. E-mail forwarding allows for email addressed to your domain to be forwarded to third party email services. For example, one might wish to have all email addressed to *@example.com forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To create an e-mail forward in the "Create Record" form for the zone in question:
- In the "Record Name" field, enter the email address that mail will be forwarded from
- Select "MBOXFW" from the "Record Type" selection menu
- In the "Record Content" field, enter the full email address that will receive the forwards
For e-mail forwarding to work, there must be an MX record in the zone pointing to mx1.nicmus.com
Generally we do not log any queries to our name servers.
No. There are no limits to zone size, queries, forwards, etc. However, if you abuse the account (spammers beware) your account will be terminated. See terms of service for details of the activities that constitute abuse.
