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


The NS Record Report interface divides the information about your system's nameservers into four 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 for the nameserver's hostname before the report can accurately supply the nameserver's IP address information.
ActionsThe actions that you can perform for each of your system's nameserver.






The NS Record Report page displays its results from the /var/cpanel/nameserverips.cache file. If you alter the configuration and the results on this page change, run the /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/updatenameserverips script to force a cache update.


The information that the columns list does not necessarily reflect your functional and in-use nameservers or domains. It is a report based on the server's local DNS zones, as well as localhost lookups of those records.
