How to register an internal domain name

Published on 31 October 2022

Domains and DNS allows you to manage and register your internal and external domains and configure and manage their DNS zones. Register and (auto-)renew your domains easily! Domains and DNS provide support for queries via both IPv4 and IPv6.

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
Requirements:
  • You have an account and are logged into the Scaleway console
  • You have entered your credit card information on your account.
  1. Click Domains and DNS in the Network section of the Scaleway Console side menu. The Domains and DNS dashboard displays. Click Register a new domain:
  2. Enter the domain name you wish to register in the box and click the search icon to verify the domain is available. A selection of available domain names displays.
  3. Check the domain names you want to register. Then click Select and configure contacts.
  4. Enter the contact details for your domain name then click Add new contact.
  5. Select your domain contact information from the drop-down list and click Validate and continue.
  6. Choose the registration period. The total pricing for your order displays.
  7. Click Validate to confirm your order and to register the domain name.
Important:

Make sure to check your domain name for any spelling issues before you place the order.

  • You cannot change the domain name once the registration is complete and the fees will still apply. You can of course make a new registration with the correctly spelled domain name.
  • Internal domains are billed immediately upon registration.
