How to manage nameservers for an internal domain name

Published on 31 October 2022

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

Identity and Access Management (IAM):

If you have activated 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
  • 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 Nameservers section of the domain overview page.
  4. Edit the nameserver information. For each nameserver of your domain you can provide:
    • A fully qualified domain name (FQDN)
    • An IPv6 address
    • An IPv4 address

    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 nameservers hosted under that same domain name.

    We recommend you configure a minimum of two and a maximum of seven DNS servers for each domain name. To add additional servers, click Add name server and enter you server’s information.
  5. Click «Delete Icon» to remove a nameserver, then click Delete in the pop-up to confirm.
  6. Click «Validate Icon» to validate your configuration. To abandon the modifications click «Cancel Icon».
