How to Use Our Name Servers (DNS) on Power Servers

Web Hosting Canada offers a DNS service with all Power Dedicated Servers (PS). Please note that this DNS service is not available with our Canadian servers (TOR)line. The DNS service can be used to easily link your domain names to your dedicated server, and manage the A, CNAME and MX records for your domain.

To use the DNS:

  1. Connect to your server's PowerPanel (inside your Client Area) using the supplied credentials following your server's activation
  2. On the bottom left, click Name Server
  3. Click Next after selecting your server's contract
  4. Click Add Domain
  5. Enter your Domain (without the www) and IP configured on your server (often the primary IP address of the server)
  6. Click on: Add Domain
  7. Configure the inputs A, NS, MX, CNAME, as needed (or keep the defaults)

At your Registrar (or in the My Domains of your Customer Area If you have registered the domain with us), change your DNS for your domain:

  • ns1.nameserverservice.com
  • ns2.nameserverservice.com
