Using your own nameservers

Are you a Canadian customer?
Please refer to instructions specific to Canadian customers.


If you've decided against using Edlio's nameservers, then you'll want to update your nameserver records as below.

Our DNS instructions have changed as of April 1, 2022!

Please see below for the most current DNS instructions.


  1. You must use a CNAME like below for your primary address.
  2. You must enter all four A records for bare domains.

Here are the records you should need. If you are a district, you should follow this pattern though it's best to talk with our support team before setup.

The [School / District ID] prefix should be unique to your school and should come from our Support Team.
