The Authoritative Name Servers are the last and most important stop in the DNS Lookup your computer does when searching for a web page. They are responsible for logging and returning the DNS Zone (the sum of the different DNS Records) to the requesters.

This means that the Name Servers are the initial and most fundamental part in the set-up of a domain name.

We’ll now go over on how to change the Name Servers on Epik.com. Please note, you can only change the Name Servers on your domain’s registrar, so this guide only applies to domains registered with Epik.

This operation may be done in bulk by selecting multiple domains. Epik supports up to 10 name servers.


Editing the Name Servers

There are two ways to get to the Name Server edit page.

1. Navigate to your Domain Portfolio.

2. Locate your domain and select it. You can click on the options square menu to reveal the Set Name Servers options, or the same option by click DNS & WHOIS in the black top navigation menu.

3. You’ll reach the options page, where you can edit your current Name Servers. There are some additional options such as the possibility of creating Custom Name Servers (which we’ll discuss in this article), applying your Domain Profiles, or automatically fill in the default Name Servers.

4. Input your new Name Servers, and click Save Changes when ready to complete.

Custom Name Servers

If you have your own VPS, Dedicated Server or IP where you manage your own DNS, you can use your current domain to set up Custom Name Servers.

Follow steps 1, 2 and 3 from the above guide.

1. Select the Custom Name Servers option.

2. Here, you’ll be able to set the hostname for the Name Server and which IPv4 and/or IPv6 you’ll assign to each name server.

3. Choose if you’d like to set these name servers for your domain name, and click Save Changes.
