Delegate domains

You can delegate domains to Yandex servers. This means that your service information will be stored and managed on Yandex DNS servers.

Attention. Before delegating a domain, link it to your company and verify it.

Delegating a domain grants you the following features:

If you're using your domain to host a website, delegating the domain shouldn't affect how the website operates in most cases. To make sure your website address is linked to the domain name, check the Domain's A record in the Yandex.Connect DNS Editor.

If you want to delegate a domain to Yandex servers, change the NS records (DNS addresses the domain is hosted through) in domain settings on your registrar's website:

  1. Log in to Yandex as the company admin.
  2. Go to the Domains page.
  3. Make sure your domain status says Confirmed.
  4. Open the domain control panel on your registrar's website and go to the DNS server management (delegation) section.
  5. Change the values of the primary and secondary DNS servers as follows (the letter “d” at the beginning of names is placed there deliberately):
    • Primary DNS server — dns1.yandex.net.
    • Secondary DNS server — dns2.yandex.net.

    If the delegation settings have a field for entering the IP addresses, leave them empty.

  6. Wait for the changes to take effect. It may take DNS servers up to 72 hours to exchange the updated DNS records.

  7. Go to the domain management page and make sure your domain status says Delegated.
