Do I have to transfer my domain to Prolateral to use the Secondary DNS or Backup DNS?

Problem:

Do I have to transfer my domain to Prolateral to use the Secondary DNS or Backup DNS?

Solution:

No, you do not have to transfer your domain to Prolateral to use the Secondary DNS (Backup DNS) service.

To use the Secondary DNS (Backup DNS) service you need enter a valid source server IP Address and also ensure that server has been given permission to allow zone transfer to the following servers

ns1.dns-engine.com
ns2.dns-engine.com
ns3.dns-engine.com
ns4.dns-engine.com
ns5.dns-engine.com

If you want the DNS-Engine name servers to answer DNS queries you will need to add them as NS servers in your domain information.

If you want the DNS-Engine name servers to purely act as a backup service and not answer domain name queries then you can omit these servers from the NS information.
