Am I using the correct DNS on my Self-Managed Server?

Please ensure that your Self-Managed Server is configured to make use of the relevant recursive DNS servers:

Data centre: Samrand -> ->

Data centre: Cape Town -> -> -> ->

Linux Servers:

Nameservers are configured in the relevant configuration file for the Linux distribution your server is running.

Windows Servers:

Windows Server machines may be configured in the Advanced TCP/IP settings on the interface.

  1. Open Control Panel.
  2. Click Network and Internet.
  3. Click Network and Sharing Center.
  4. Click Change adapter settings in the left pane
  5. Right-click the public-facing interface and select Properties

  6. Select Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and then Properties

  7. Under the General tab, “Use the following DNS server addresses” will be selected, showing at least 2 recursive nameservers

  8. To configure more than 2 servers, select the Advanced option
  9. Select the DNS tab
  10. Recursive name servers can be added or removed from here.
  11. Select OK once done

Please note:

  • Xneelo will provision Self-Managed Servers with 3 recursive name servers for Windows and Linux installations.
  • We do not assist with the configuration on Self-Managed Servers. If you require further assistance with DNS configuration, you will need to contact your system administrator.
