What is the difference between the Name Server setting options for my domains?

When managing or registering a domain name through our interface, you will be provided with several options when it comes to setting your domain's name servers. The following is a quick overview of the different options and what they mean!



Australian Web Hosting

Select Jive Web & Email if you would like to use your domain name with one of our web hosting packages. This will ensure that your domain name is pointed to the correct servers so that the world can see your awesome website and your emails can be routed to the right place!



Free Australian DNS Hosting

Perfect if you have opted not to get one of our hosting packages. JiveDNS is a free service provided with all domain registrations and transfers that allows you to manage the DNS records for your domain names.

Don't have a website ready yet? Keep your domain name from being snapped up by the competition and set up a free temporary landing page until you're ready to use it!

Websites or mail hosted somewhere else? You can set the nameservers provided by your current provider by using the Custom NS option.
