DNS configuration on dedicated server

Why?
You have a domain name, and want to point to your dedicated server. Once the changes made, your server will be responsible for the domain name.

How?


For dedicated servers:


  • If the domain is at OVH:

Go to Manager, then select your domain name and go to the section Domain & DNS, DNS Servers. The next page lets you specify the new DNS.

Put:
nsXXXX.ovh.net (or aaa-bbb-ccc-ddd.ovh.net if you use an ip failover or reverse ip dns server primary)
sdns1.ovh.net (in secondary)

  • If the domain is with another Registrar:

Go to the interface that is provided by your registrar and change the DNS.

Put:
nsXXXX.ovh.net (or aaa-bbb-ccc-ddd.ovh.net if you use an ip failover or reverse ip dns server primary)
sdns1.ovh.net and (in secondary)



For RPS servers:


  • If the domain is at OVH:

Go to Manager, then select your domain name and go to the section Domain & DNS, DNS Servers. The next page lets you specify the new DNS.

Put:
rXXXX.ovh.net (or aaa-bbb-ccc-ddd.ovh.net if you use an ip failover or reverse ip dns server primary)
sdns1.ovh.net (in secondary)

  • If the domain is with another Registrar:

Go to the interface that is provided by your registrar and change the DNS.

Put:
rXXXX.ovh.net (or aaa-bbb-ccc-ddd.ovh.net if you use an ip failover or reverse ip dns server primary)
sdns1.ovh.net and (in secondary)


For Kimsufi servers:


  • If the domain is at OVH:

Go to Manager, then select your domain name and go to the section Domain & DNS, DNS Servers. The next page lets you specify the new DNS.

Put:
ksXXXX.kimsufi.com (or aaa-bbb-ccc-ddd.ovh.net if you use an ip failover or reverse ip dns server primary)
ns.kimsufi.com (in secondary)

  • If the domain is with another Registrar:

Go to the interface that is provided by your registrar and change the DNS.
Put:
ksXXXX.kimsufi.com (or aaa-bbb-ccc-ddd.ovh.net if you use an ip failover or reverse ip dns server primary)
ns.kimsufi.com (in secondary)


Conclusion
After confirmation, you need to install your domain on the server and on ns.ovh.net.
