Manage Nameservers

Learn how to manage nameservers for your domains on Vercel.

Nameservers are used to resolve domain names to IP addresses. For domains with Vercel as the registrar, nameservers can be viewed, edited, and reset by selecting the domain from the Domains page.

Sometimes, however, you may need to delegate nameserver management to another host. For domains registered with Vercel, you can add custom nameservers to your Vercel-hosted domain, directly from the dashboard, allowing for delegation to other DNS providers. You can add up to four nameservers at once, and revert to your previous settings if necessary.

For domains that are not registered with Vercel, you can change the nameservers directly from the domain registrar's dashboard.

Nameserver changes can take up to 48 hours to complete due to DNS propagation.

On your Domain's Settings page, under Nameservers, click the Edit button.

Opening the Edit Nameservers modal by clicking the Edit button.

After clicking the Edit button, the Edit Nameservers modal will open up. When submitting your nameserver changes, a message will appear upon successful submission.

Adding custom nameservers by clicking the Apply button.

If you wish to revert back to the nameservers you were using before your custom nameservers change, click on the Restore Original Nameservers button. After clicking on the Restore Original Nameservers button, the Restore Original Nameservers modal will open up, confirming which nameservers will be present after the change. When submitting your nameserver changes, a message will appear upon successful submission.

Restoring original nameservers by clicking the Restore button.
