Edit an NS record

Edit your existing custom NS records to change the settings for a specific subdomain prefix pointing to different set of nameservers. We'll automatically configure NS records needed for your default DNS when managing DNS with GoDaddy, and these records can't be modified. Custom NS records let you manage DNS for the subdomain on a separate DNS service.

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy Domain Control Center. (Need help logging in? Find your username or password.)
  2. Select your domain to access the Domain Settings page.
    select domain
  3. Select Manage DNS under Additional Settings.
  4. Select Edit next to the NS record you're editing.
  5. Edit the details for your NS record:
    • Name: The host name of the subdomain prefix you'll be pointing to.
    • Value: The nameserver you want the subdomain prefix to point to.
    • TTL: How long the server should cache information. The default setting is 1 hour.
  6. Select Save to complete your changes.

Most DNS updates take effect within an hour, but could take up to 48 hours to update globally.
