What is the Easyhost standard DNS?

This article will tell you the standard DNS for Easyhost. You can only connect the domain name to the Easyhost hosting if you have correct DNS. Before you proceed, please have in mind:

  1. Your DNS is only managed by the entity your nameservers point to. And your nameservers are appointed by the registrar of the domain name. Please click here for more information – Where is my domain name pointing to?

  2. After a change in DNS, a propagation period takes place where a DNS check may return false values. The propagation time is usually about 1 hour, but could easily reach 4. For nameservers propagation time is usually up to 24 hours, occasionally reaching 36.

  3. If a domain name only is purchased by Easyhost, the A-record points to the default Parked page. If you later also purchase hosting, the A-record is still custom and it is not changed automatically.
