Namesco DNS Settings

If you need to direct your domain to Namesco's services, and your domain is delegated to our nameservers, you could use one of our present DNS templates. A guide to settings these can be found here Change DNS Settings.

Our name servers are:-

  • ns0.phase8.net
  • ns1.phase8.net
  • ns2.phase8.net

If your domain is registered with Namesco, you can redelegate the domain to our name servers from the Namesco Online Control Panel. You can find a guide for this here Change Nameservers

However, if you would like to manually set your domains DNS records, or if your domain is not delegated to our nameservers, you will be able to find the settings you are looking for in this article.
