Dynu gives you full control over all the DNS configurations for your domain names. You can log onto the control panel to manage your DNS records.

What is an NS record?

Name Server (NS) records identify the name servers that are authoritative for the DNS zone. Every zone must have at least one NS record. Using two or more NS records is better so that if the first nameserver is unavailable, the zone will still be accessible.

To avail our dynamic DNS service, you must list at least one of Dynu name servers for your domain name. If you registered your domain name( ) with Dynu, Dynu name servers are already listed for your domain name. If your domain is with some other registrar, you need to change the name servers at your current registrar.

You can add additional NS records to a domain if you plan on using additional name servers that do not belong to Dynu in the control panel.
