New DNS servers


This guide tells you then changes to do to your DNS servers and the mistakes to avoid.

Changes after February 2007

Attention! : Since February 2007, OVH has implemented a series of new shared DNS servers. To check on which one your DNS domain is hosted, you must go to the OVH Manager, click on the field "Domain & DNS", "DNS Zone" option, and watch the 2 fields of the type NS (like dnsXX.ovh.net and nsXX.ovh.net); so, for a newly created domain, here are the recommended configurations.

The DNS declarations depending on the type of domain


- For a domain installed on a shared hosting:

Primary DNS: dns??.ovh.net
IP : 213.251.188.1??
Secondary DNS: ns??.ovh.net
IP : 213.251.128.1??


- For a domain installed without webhosting :

Primary DNS: dns??.ovh.net
IP : 213.251.188.1??
Secondary DNS: ns??.ovh.net
IP :213.251.128.1??

If you need the IP associated with DNS, have a look at the following pairs (DNS still work in pairs):
dns.ovh.net / ns.ovh.net --> 213.186.33.102 / 212.127.32.132
dns10.ovh.net / ns10.ovh.net --> 213.251.188.129 / 213.251.128.129
dns11.ovh.net / ns11.ovh.net --> 213.251.188.130 / 213.251.128.130
dns12.ovh.net / ns12.ovh.net --> 213.251.188.131 / 213.251.128.131
dns13.ovh.net / ns13.ovh.net --> 213.251.188.132 / 213.251.128.132
dns14.ovh.net / ns14.ovh.net --> 213.251.188.133 / 213.251.128.133
dns15.ovh.net / ns15.ovh.net --> 213.251.188.134 / 213.251.128.134
dns16.ovh.net / ns16.ovh.net --> 213.251.188.135 / 213.251.128.135
...
To find the IP of a DNS, you can also use the command "host" or "ping" to against the DNS server name.


- For a domain installed on a dedicated server at OVH :

Primary DNS : nsXXXXX.ovh.net (your server)
IP : IP of your server
Secondary DNS : sdns1.ovh.net
IP : 213.251.188.140

- For a domain installed on a Kimsufi dedicated server :

Primary DNS : ksXXXX.ovh.net (votre serveur)
IP : IP of your server
Secondary DNS : ns.kimsufi.com
IP : 213.186.33.199

The errors to aviod


Examples of statements for domains that do not work properly (fully or partially):

- in a Kimsufi server:
ksXXX.kimsufi.com
sdns1.ovh.net
must be replaced by: ksXXX.kimsufi.com
ns.kimsufi.com


- with an OVH server, for a new domain :
nsXXX.ovh.net
ns.ovh.net
must be replaced by: nsXXX.ovh.net
sdns1.ovh.net


- with a new domain:
dns.ovh.net
ns.ovh.net
must be replaced by: dns13.ovh.net
ns13.ovh.net
