Name Servers and Child Name Servers related Rules (Anchor: ns)

  • Each .SX Domain Name needs to have at least 2 Name Servers and may have upto 10 Name Servers.

  • In case of .SX domain names, all Child Name Servers that you create/add, are automatically associated with that .SX domain name as a Name Server. Due to this limitation, you will only be able to add upto 10 Child Name Servers for .SX domain names.

    The maximum number of Name Servers that can be associated with any .SX domain name is 10. If you have already added other Name Servers (not Child Name Servers of this .SX domain name), then the number of Child Name Servers that you may create would reduce by that many.

    Examples:

    • yourdomainname.sx

      Child Name Servers created: ns1.yourdomainname.sx and ns2.yourdomainname.sx

      These Child Name Servers get automatically added as Name Servers as well for this domain name: ns1.yourdomainname.sx and ns2.yourdomainname.sx

      This means that now for the domain name yourdomainname.sx, you may only add upto 9 other Child Name Servers or Name Servers since every time you create a Child Name Server, it gets automatically associated with the .SX domain name as a Name Server.

    • yourotherdomainname.sx

      Name Servers used: ns1.hostingprovider.com, ns2.hostingprovider.com

      Child Name Servers created: ns1.yourotherdomainname.sx, ns2.yourotherdomainname.sx

      These Child Name Servers get automatically added as Name Servers for this domain name: ns1.yourotherdomainname.sx, ns2.yourotherdomainname.sx

      So in all 4 Name Servers will be associated with yourotherdomainname.sx: ns1.hostingprovider.com, ns2.hostingprovider.com, ns1.yourotherdomainname.sx, ns2.yourotherdomainname.sx

      This means that now for the domain name yourotherdomainname.sx, you may only add upto 6 other Child Name Servers or Name Servers since every time you create a Child Name Server, it gets automatically associated with the .SX domain name as a Name Server.

  • You may associate upto 10 IP Addresses per Child Name Server.

  • You may modify both Name Servers as well as any Child Name Servers associated with your .SX Domain Name.
