How to configure DNS for Web Hosting

Reviewed on 24 July 2023Published on 17 January 2023

To link your domain name with Web Hosting, you must update the DNS configuration of your domain name to use Scaleway’s configuration. Once updated, you can verify the configuration to activate your Web Hosting plan.

Security & Identity (IAM):

You may need certain IAM permissions to carry out some actions described on this page. This means:

  • you are the Owner of the Scaleway Organization in which the actions will be carried out, or
  • you are an IAM user of the Organization, with a policy granting you the necessary permission sets
Requirements:
  1. Click Web Hosting in the Managed Services section of the console side menu. The Web Hosting overview page displays.
  2. Click «More infos Icon» or the domain name of the Web Hosting plan you want to configure. The Hosting information page displays.
  3. Click the DNS Verification tab. The DNS configuration page displays.
  4. Update your DNS servers. Two options are available:
    • Use Scaleway’s DNS servers. We provide DNS servers for your Web Hosting plan that contain all required DNS configuration. To use these nameservers, update the nameservers associated with your domain name with the servers provided by Scaleway.
    • Manual DNS configuration (advanced). If you prefer to continue using your current DNS servers, update the DNS zone at your registrar with all DNS records provided.
    Note:

    It can take 24 to 48 hours until your DNS updates have been propagated on the Internet.

  5. Click Verify domain once you have updated your DNS configuration. The DNS verfication process will be launched.
    Once the process has been completed successfully, you will notice a green dot next to DNS verification. You DNS is now configured and linked with your Web Hosting plan.
