How do I set up my default name server settings?

Default name servers will automatically set new domain registrations to the name servers of your choosing. To set your default name server settings, please follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your Dynadot account.
  2. Select "My Domains" from the left-side menu bar and click "Domain Defaults" in the drop-down.
  3. Select the "Name Servers" option.
  4. In the "DNS Setting" section, select "Name Servers" from the drop-down menu.
  5. Enter or Select the default name server settings you wish to set for any future domains you register with us.
  6. Press the "Save" button at the top right of the page to save your changes. Now any new domain registrations will be set to your default name server settings.
Your settings should look similar to what is shown below:

Please be aware that it might take some time for your name server changes to propagate.


  • Transferred domains keep their current name servers as they enter your account, and will not be affected by these settings unless the option "Apply to transferred domains" is checked.

  • Custom DNS settings do not carry over when a domain is moved between Dynadot accounts, and will not be affected by these settings unless the option "Apply to receiving Push domains" is checked.
