How to setup domain to use Namecheap FreeDNS



In this how-to video, you’ll learn how to enroll your domain name to use our FreeDNS service.

FreeDNS can be used when your domain registrar doesn’t provide DNS hosting with domain registration as well as for the domain names registered with us if you need to create a separate zone for your subdomain.

To start using FreeDNS, you’ll need to add at least two nameservers from below:

freedns1.registrar-servers.com
freedns2.registrar-servers.com
freedns3.registrar-servers.com
freedns4.registrar-servers.com
freedns5.registrar-servers.com
