Name Server Record Management

GUIDES AND USEFUL INFORMATION > 01. Domains & Hosting > 03. Technical support > 05. DNS
From the “Name Server Record” section found on the main page you can select whether you wish to use the Name Servers of Aruba or your own Name Servers.

 If you choose to use the Name Servers of Aruba:

  • All the information relevant to NS Record will be set automatically and cannot be changed;
  • You can set the TTL parameter:
  • You can perform operations on all other types of Records;
  • If you purchase the “DNS management with Mail” service you can decide whether to manage your mail through Mail Servers of Aruba or through your own Mail Servers.

If you choose to use other Name Servers:

  • You will only be able to manage the Name Server Record while operations on other Records will not be allowed as the settings must be set on the machines that you have chosen to use;
  • The mail management will be external to the Mail Servers of Aruba and therefore carried out by the machines that you have chosen to use as Mail Servers;
  • You need to specify, in the page relevant to the “NS Record”, the name of the host and the IP address of the Servers chosen as authoritative (please remember that the Name Servers need to be at least two).


We remind you that the IP addresses cannot refer to the shared Servers of Aruba, except for the Virtual /Dedicated Servers.

Furthermore, you need to remember that, if you have only one Name Server, it cannot be used as secondary server dns2.technorail.com.
In fact, either you use both authoritative NS of Aruba, or, if you choose to use other Name Servers, these need be all external.

 

Add a Name Server Record
N.B.: You can add a Name Server Record, only if you have chosen to use Name Servers other than those of Aruba.
If not, all the information relevant to NS Records will be set automatically and it will not be possible to add or change anything.

If you select the “Use other Name Servers” option, to add a Name Server Record you need to:
 

 

 

 

 

Enter the name of the Server requested as Name Server in the “Host” field.   

 

N.B.: If as an authoritative NS Server you use a host name of the domain itself, you need to make sure to create such host as an A Record;

 

 

  • Enter the relevant IP address in the “IP Address” field;
  • Click on “Add Record” to confirm;
  • Click on “Continue”;
  • Click on “Save Configuration” to save the settings.

If you are using Name Servers other than those of Aruba, to delete a Record you need to:

  • Select the Record that you wish to delete;
  • Click on the “Delete” icon found in the horizontal menu at the top:

  • Click on “Save Configuration” to save the settings.
If, however, you choose to use the Name Servers of Aruba, all the information relevant to the NS Record will be set automatically and cannot be changed.

If you are using Name Servers other than those of Aruba, to change a Record you need to:
