How to manage name servers for an internal domain

Reviewed on 31 July 2023Published on 31 October 2022

Scaleway Domains and DNS provides a managed DNS solution by providing default name servers for each domain name. If you want to use your own DNS servers, you can edit the name servers associated with your domain name.

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:
  • You have an account and are logged into the Scaleway console
  • You have a domain name registered with Scaleway Domains and DNS
  1. Click Domains and DNS in the Network section of the Scaleway console side menu. The Domains and DNS dashboard displays.
  2. Click the domain name you want to configure.
  3. Click Edit in the Name Servers section of the domain overview page.
  4. Edit the name server information. For each name server of your domain you can provide:
    • A fully qualified domain name (FQDN)
    • An IPv6 address
    • An IPv4 address
    Tip:

    IP addresses are only required if you want to create glue records. A glue record provides the IP address of a name server so that DNS can resolve the domain name if the domain uses name servers hosted under that same domain name.

  5. Click Add name server to add additional name servers and enter your server’s information.
    Tip:

    We recommend you configure a minimum of two and a maximum of seven DNS servers for each domain name.

  6. Click «Delete Icon» to remove a name server.
  7. Click «Validate Icon» to validate your configuration.
  8. Click «Cancel Icon» to cancel all changes you have made.
