What Are LinkSky's Name Servers?

We recently simplified our name servers, so they are no longer server specific, which is much easier for members.

LinkSky's modern name servers are:

ns1.linksky.com
ns2.linksky.com
ns3.linksky.com

These name servers should replace your existing name servers for any members on our cPanel servers (CloudLinux). These can be used for primary domain names, addon domain names, and domain aliases (parked domain names).

Legacy name servers, such as ns1.softlayer.com, ns2.softlayer.com, etc. should no longer be used.

Here are steps to change your name servers:

  • Option 1: LinkSky Domains

    To change the name servers for a domain name registered through LinkSky Domains:

    1. Login to LinkSky Domains using your customer number
    2. Click the "Manage" button to the right of your domain
    3. Click the "Manage DNS" text link towards the bottom of the page under the "Additional Settings" heading
    4. Under the "Nameservers" heading click the "Change" button
    5. Select "Hosting" from the dropdown menu (see screenshot below)
    6. Click the "Save" button

  • Option 2: third-party (GoDaddy, Network Solutions, etc.)

    To change your name servers for a domain registered through a third-party domain registrar:

    • Login to the third-party's domain name control panel

      OR

    • Contact the third-party's support department

Note: Name server and DNS records cache at many levels (Internet provider, local router, local computer/device, etc.), so it may take a few hours (up to 24 hours) for name server and DNS changes to propagate to everyone on the Internet.
