How to Register or Update Nameservers for .EU and .DE Domains

How do I register or update name servers for .EU or .DE domains?


The .EU and .DE top level domains have a different way to register name servers (i.e., create glue records) and should not be registered using the regular tool on our website.

To register name servers for one of these domains, please do the following:

  • Follow the steps in the article, How to Change Domain Nameservers (DNS).
  • If you were setting up ns1.example.eu and ns2.example.eu, for example, you would navigate to the DNS Server Settings for example.eu.
  • Enter the name servers in the DNS Server Settings section in the following format:

Making these entries for example.eu registers the name servers ns1.example.eu and ns2.example.eu. If you have another .eu domain that needs to use the same name servers, then you can simply enter ns1.example.eu and ns2.example.eu.

If you would like to use name servers on a domain of a different TLD (e.g., use ns1.example.eu on example.com), please follow the instructions at the end of the article, How to Register, Modify or Delete Nameservers Using Your Domain.
