How Can I Change My DNS Settings

The DNS is used by more experienced users, where the domain name points directly to an 'IP address'. Most Paid Domain users use the URL forwarding, where the underlying website is registered somewhere else, just like the URL forwarding service with Free Domain.

If you want to use your own DNS, you have two choices:

  1. You can opt to use the Dot TK DNS Service, where within My Dot TK you can setup your A and MX records.
  2. You can use an external DNS. Please consult your Internet or Hosting Provider for these options.

PLEASE NOTE: Be careful with changing the DNS settings for your Paid Domain domain name. Wrong settings will directly result in unavailibility of your domain name on the Internet.

If you do change the DNS settings, it will take up to 15 minutes to have your settings updated worldwide.
