How to Check a Name Server Registration and Address
Article Number: KB 921
How do I check to see if my name server has been registered, and if it is registered to the correct IP address?
To check the status for any name server registered on a domain that is in your account:
- Under the Domains menu, click Advanced Tools, and then click Register a Name Server.
- Scroll down to Check Status of a NameServer Name and type your name server name. (e.g., ns1.yourdomain.com). The tool will return the status of your name server and the IP address to which it is registered.
NOTE: You will need to scroll down to see the results.
To check the status of a name server on a domain that is not in your account, you can often go to the Registry's WHOIS service directly. For example, to check a .COM/.NET name server, you can go to Verisign's WHOIS service here:
Be sure to select the name server radio button before you search.
