(Home >> DNS Functions >> NS Record Report)


The NS Record Report interface lists the server's nameserver information.


This interface retrieves the list of nameserver information from the /var/cpanel/nameserverips.cache file. If you alter the configuration and the results in this interface change, run the /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/updatenameserverips script to force a cache update.

NS Record Report

The interface lists information in the following columns:

NameserverThe name of your system's authoritative
Resolved IPYour nameserver's IP address.

The number of DNS zones that the nameserver hosts.


You must properly configure the DNS entry for the nameserver's hostname before the report can accurately supply the nameserver's IP address information.

The actions that you can perform for each of your system's nameservers. When you click Edit, the Edit DNS Zone interface (Home >> DNS Functions >> Edit DNS Zone) will appear.



This information does not always reflect the status of your server's functional and in-use nameservers or domains. This report returns information based on the server's local DNS zones, as well as localhost lookups of those records.
