How to Setup Plus Managed DNS


The purpose of this guide is to provide you with general instructions for configuring Plus Managed DNS on your domain name.

If you are using No-IP as your domain registrar with Plus Managed DNS, we will automatically update your nameservers records once Plus Managed DNS is purchased.

To start using No-IP Plus Managed DNS, you will need to change the name server with your domain name registrar. You must use the following nameservers for each domain with Plus Managed DNS:

IPv4
NS1.NO-IP.COM
NS2.NO-IP.COM
NS3.NO-IP.COM
NS4.NO-IP.COM
IPv6
NS1.NO-IP.COM
NS2.NO-IP.COM
NS3.NO-IP.COM

Note that it takes between 24 and 48 hours for nameserver changes to fully propagate around the globe to all recursive DNS servers. The nameserver change may show in the public WHOIS database instantly but can take the full 48 hours for everyone to see your domain’s new name servers around the globe. If you see an alert message in your account it will automatically go away after 48 hours.

Plus Managed DNS allows you to create up to 50 hostnames attached to your domain name and create Advanced DNS records such as TXT, SRV, DKIM, etc. You are also able to use Dynamic DNS to keep your dynamic IP address synced with our DNS servers.
