How do I change my name servers?


Change of Name Servers


To change the name servers associated with a domain, please

  • log in at and visit 'My Domains', selecting 'Modify' with the domain you want to change
  • click on the edit symbol edit symbolto add your own name servers, or to chose " name service"


The change should be visible in Joker-DNS after at most 45 minutes. The old data may linger in some external DNS caches for up to 86400 seconds = 1 day.

If you have chosen " nameservice", you now may add name server entries (records) to your domain, including URL forwarding rules, email adresses or hostname records by visiting 'DNS' in "My Domains'.


To edit an existing name server or add a new one, visit My Joker -> My Nameservers and either click on 'create new name server' to create a new name server, or click 'change' next to the nameserver you want to change. Then, you will be able to edit the DNS name and IP address of your nameserver. 


If you have assigned your own external name servers, you have to use the tools provided by your DNS provider to add DNS records.
