Name servers administration

Creating name servers

All name servers under the .dk domain must be registered by DK Hostmaster, and the name server manager must enter into a name server agreement with DK Hostmaster.

To obtain approval of name servers, the name server administrator must provide documentation to DK Hostmaster of the required technical knowledge about DNS functions, including the configuration of domain names on a domain server.

DK Hostmaster does not provide support with the configuration of name servers.

The application for creation of name servers can be found here. 

Change of name servers

Existing name servers must be administrated, using our self service.

New name servers can be created using this form


Change name servers IP address

When a name server receives a new IP address, Punktum dk only needs to update this information, if the name server is a part of the .dk zone and the name server hosts its own domain.

  • If the name server is not in the .dk zone? It will not be possible to make the update in the .dk zone. The update must be performed in the name servers zone. Ex. .com, .org or .net.
  • Does the name server run its own domain? Changes of the name servers IP addresses must be updated, using our self service.

How can I see if the name server is running its own domain?

In this example, we use our name servers:

authns1.ngdc.net auth01.punktum.dk auth02.punktum.dk  

all run our domain: punktum.dk

As the name for two of our name servers both dk-hostmaster.dk, we say they run their own domain. That is why changes of these name servers IP addresses, must be updated in our self service.

The name server authns1.ngdc.net must be updated in the .net zone.

Changing the name of your name server If the name server is to given a new name, it must be registered, and approved by dk-hostmaster. After the approval, all domain names can be redelegated internally to the new name server. Then the old name server, can be removed from the .dk zone.
