It is possible to use your Nameserver as Hidden-Primary. You operate the primary Nameserver, which is only active in background to supply the entries for our Namerservers.

At first you have to add your domain in your Nameserver. On doing so, please add one of the following Nameserver lists as NS record. The Nameservers only differ in name.




If the domain has been set as Master in our Nameserver, please make sure to delete this record before creating a new one. Afterwards you can go into our customer area to the menu item “Nameserver” and follow the subsequent steps:

  1. Click on “Manage NS-Sets”.

  2. Enter a new NS-Set with “Add NS-Set” and set a definite name.

  3. Choose “Secondary DNS” for “Type”.

  4. Enter the Name of the Nameservers you have choosen into the corresponding fields. For “Master IP address” enter the IP address of your master Namerserver.

After you have saved the NS-Set, it will be available while you set up new domains under Nameserver. Automatically the secondary configuration will be used with the matching master IP address for newly registered domains.

To use us as secondary DNS, the domain at issue must be set in our Nameserver. To do this manually, click on the menu item “Nameserver” and then on the button “Add Domain”. Choose the new Nameserver-Set.

The Nameserver which executes zone transfers, has the IP Please send your NOTIFYs to the IP adress. Also, AXFR zone transfers must be allowed by the server under this IP address.
