Change of nameservers on domain

Nameserver or also DNS (Domain Name Server) is the basic helper for domain directing. On nameserver server are saved needed DNS records (for example A record, CNAME, MX records and so on), thanks to them on domain will be shown chosen website, or the message is forwarded to correct provider of e-mail solution.

How to change individual DNS records is described in article Settings of DNS records.
 

NOTE: At some less common TLDs can be change of name servers paid. On any fee you'll be informed during the change in control panel, or by customers service. 

 

Which nameservers am I using now?


Every domain you own, can have set different nameservers of different providers. To make individual settings of DNS records in our control panel to have influence on domain, the domain have to use nameservers of Active24

What nameservers the domain currently use can be found on WHOIS of selected TLD, or by using so called DNS lookup tools, for example MXtoolbox or G SUIT toolbox of Google company. 

 


Nameservers of Active24


Nameservers currently provided and used by ACTIVE 24 are these:

Set of nameservers (NSSET):

- NSS:GLOBE-SGLO000001:1

Is used only for .CZ domains.
Primary DNS:

- alfa.ns.active24.cz
  IPv4: 81.95.96.2
  IPv6: 2a02:4a8:ac24:100::96:2
 

Secondary DNS:
beta.ns.active24.cz 
  IPv4: 81.0.238.27
  IPv6: 2001:1528:151::12

  IPv4: 194.9.95.219

 


Change of NSSET at .CZ domain

At CZ domains it's impossible to set directly our nameserver, but is used so called set of nameservers (NSSET). If you need to set different name servers then ours, then you can find out the right NSSET at provider of hosting or e-mail services. But it can happen, that for needed nameservers the NSSET is not created and it's necessary to create one - you can continue by this article How to create NSSet (set of nameservers).
