Name Servers for your .NU Domain

NuNames is pleased to offer a number of add-on services for your .NU Domain name.

In order to ensure that your services work correctly, please check that your domain name is configured with the correct custom name servers.

Webrouter Service

To use our complimentary email forwarding and web URL forwarding service, the name servers assigned to your domain should be:

ns1.webrouter.nu
ns2.webrouter.nu

Once the  webrouter  name servers are in place, you will then see "Domain Forwarders" and "Email Forwarders" options under the Domain Management section of your domain name.  You can use these to configure domain web/url forwards and email address forwards for your domain. Note that it can take up to a few hours for any changes made to propagate to the internet at large.

The only functionality available with webrouter is email forwards and URL forwards. To have additional functionality such as the ability to edit your DNS records, have web hosting or email accounts, please upgrade to one of our cPanel hosting services.

InstantDNS

If you wish to use our custom DNS Zone manager or record editor, to enter your own custom DNS records, then the name servers for your domain should be:

ns1.instantdns.nu
ns2.instantdns.nu

The only functionality available with InstantDNS is custom DNS records. To have additional functionality such as email forwarding, URL redirect, web hosting or email accounts, please upgrade to one of our cPanel hosting services.

Domain Parking

If you do not need any name service, web service, or email service; you can assign our default name servers to hold your domain for you.

ns1.instantdns.nu
ns2.instantdns.nu

cPanel Hosting

With your cPanel hosting services, you can have a more robust and extensive DNS manager in combination with email forwarding, email accounts, wildcard email forwarding, web hosting and/or URL redirect. There are currently four tiers of cPanel hosting.  The name servers for this service are:

ns1.nunames-online.nu
ns2.nunames-online.nu
ns3.nunames-online.nu

Legacy Services

If you still have custom DNS records configured in our legacy customer area and wish to keep those records live; or if you are using the InstantWeb site builder from our legacy customer area, then the name servers for your domain should remain:

ns01.hostcontrol.com
ns02.hostcontrol.com
ns03.hostcontrol.org

Although these name servers from our legacy area will continue to serve your legacy DNS records, in order to edit or update those records, they will need to be migrated to InstantDNS or a cPanel DNS hosting option. Please contact us to migrate your records.

You can view or edit the name servers for your domain in the Domains section of your client area, using the "wrench" icon.

This article will be updated as we add additional services and servers.

Thank you for choosing NuNames!
