What are the Site5 DNS servers?

7 Comments

The Site5 DNS servers are listed below. The Site5 DNS servers can be used with the following hosting products: Web Hosting, Cloud Web Hosting, and our VPS and Cloud VPS that come with SiteAdmin.

dns.site5.com
dns2.site5.com

If you are using our Reseller Hosting, Cloud Reseller Hosting, or a VPS or Cloud VPS with cPanel please use this article to find your DNS if you didn’t setup custom DNS.

Some registrars require the addition of the IP addresses when you are setting up your nameservers (such as .eu TLDs). If your registrar requires the IP addresses of our nameservers you can use the following:

dns.site5.com – 162.210.50.254
dns2.site5.com – 108.174.149.181

  • Can a Site5 Web site be configured to use the OpenDNS service?

    • Hi John,

      Our managed services – both shared and managed VPS – are set up in such a way that this would not be permitted. However, on our Unmanaged VPS services – http://www.site5.com/vps/unmanaged/ – you can set this up, yes.

    • Hi Manuel,

      I am sorry to hear that, but this could be caused by any number of things. Can you open a ticket with our support team on this, so we can take a look for you? You can enter the ticket via BackStage, using the Support link.

  • Are we required to move our DNS from our registrar to site5 or can we just point the records to the correct place? If so, do we have control over add/moves/changes on the Site5 server?

    I am an integrator and this question was just posed to me so I haven’t looked.

    • Hi Dave,

      No, we do not require anyone to move their DNS to us. You can easily just update the DNS records at your external registrar/nameservers.

      The only downside to not using our nameservers is that we would be unable to help with any DNS edits that might be needed due to our lack of access to the zone files. :)
