Using Edlio nameservers
The best way to use an Edlio website is to use Edlio's nameservers to host your DNS records, including any
MX (email) records.
Edlio uses a fantastic 3rd-party provider, DNS Made Easy, to run our nameservers. This means 100% uptime due to geographically redundant servers—which also makes your website fast!
Time and time again we've seen clients' DNS nameservers go down, either when using a domain registrar like GoDaddy or when a school or district is self-hosting their DNS records. Our other websites stay up, and we'd love to help you keep yours running.
To set up using our nameservers, do the following:
- If you have an existing website or email at your domain name (e.g.
[email protected]) then first you must copy down those existing records to avoid any interruption to your online services.
- Next, contact your project manager with these existing records and let us know you want to switch to Edlio's nameservers so we can prepare everything on our end.
- Once we've given you the go-ahead from Step 2, update your domain registrar to point to Edlio's nameservers:
