How do I use ns5/6.nine.ch as a second DNS?

If you want to operate your own DNS server and configure the nine.ch DNS server to be a slave to prevent downtime, follow these steps:

  1. Make sure your name server allows AXFR zone transfer for the IPs

ns7.nine.ch (5.148.164.46, IPv6: 2a02:418:400b:2::f),
ns5.nine.ch (193.17.85.122, IPv6 2001:67c:2f98:5::5), and
ns6.nine.ch (5.148.164.36, IPv6: 2a02:418:400b:1::6).

  • Login to Cockpit with your customer login details and select the menu item DNS at the top

  • Click the Add button and enter a new secondary domain on ns7.nine.ch (ns7.nine.ch is the transfer and data master host of ns5/ns6.nine.ch)

  • Enter the domain and master server

  • Send a DNS notify to all of our name server

For every change you make to your dns zones, you will have to send a DNS notify to ns7.nine.ch.
