The recommended GreenGeeks name servers (DNS) settings are as follows.
These name servers feature Anycast technology, which will automatically route DNS traffic to the closest available name server for the lowest possible latency:
You can change the DNS settings for your domain name at the registrar where you purchased the domain. They should have a control panel where you can change the name servers for your domain. The setting is often called “custom name servers” or similar.
Sometimes when updating name server records there is a field for an IP address. If that’s the case at your registrar, here are the IP addresses for the name servers.
- NS1.GREENGEEKS.NET – 188.8.131.52
- NS2.GREENGEEKS.NET – 184.108.40.206
The legacy GreenGeeks name server (DNS) settings are as follows:
Although the legacy nameservers are still supported, GreenGeeks encourages all customers to use the Anycast servers listed above under greengeeks.net.
If you run into any problems updating the name servers for your domain, contact the registrar or hosting company where you purchased the domain and ask them to update the name server records for you. If a registrar or hosting company refuses to update the name server records for your domain, please let us know, and we will try to assist.
If you want to use your own private name servers, under your own domain, check out our reseller hosting services.
