NS Record


This document describes how to add an NS record. If you need to authorize a subdomain to another DNS service provider for DNS resolution, you need to add an NS record. We recommend you use the default NS record of DNSPod.


  1. Log in to the DNSPod Console.
  2. In "My Domains", click the domain for which to add an NS record to enter its Record Management page as shown below:
  3. Click Add Records and enter the following record information as shown below:
  • Host: enter a subdomain. For example, if you need to authorize the DNS resolution of www.dnspod.com to another DNS server, you can select "www" in the "Host" field, and the authorization of the subdomain will not affect the normal resolution of other subdomains.
  • Type: select "NS".
  • Split Zone: select "Default"; otherwise, the domain may not be resolvable for certain users.
  • Value: enter the DNS server domain to be authorized. After the record is generated, a "." will be automatically added after the domain.

The DNS server domain to be authorized cannot be a private one, but must be an authoritative one of the DNS service provider, such as DNSPod's free DNS server address f1g1ns1.dnspod.net.

  • Weight: leave it empty.
  • MX: leave it empty.
  • TTL: it is the cache time and 600s by default. The smaller the value, the faster the change to the record will take effect in various regions.
  1. Click Confirm.
