The NearlyFreeSpeech.NET FAQ (*)

Domain Name Service (DNS) (*)

Q. What name servers should I use with my domain?

If you have NearlyFreeSpeech.NET DNS service, you may obtain your name server information from the DNS information page for your domain in our user interface. Just go to the Domains panel and, for the domain in question, under the "DNS" column, click "Manage." The name servers for your domain are listed in the "Authoritative Name Servers" box.

If you are using third party DNS, you must get the name server information from your DNS provider.

If you do not have NearlyFreeSpeech.NET DNS and you do not have DNS from a third party, you do not have name servers and will usually not be able to use domain names with your website, except through "masking" or "forwarding" offered by some domain registrars.

If you're registering a new ccTLD domain name with a third-party registrar and you're planning to use NearlyFreeSpeech.NET DNS, and you run into a situation where the registrar needs you to have valid name servers before you register the domain, send us an Assistance Request and we'll add the domain and activate DNS for you.
