Earlier this summer, GreenGeeks began rolling out our Anycast-based DNS to all shared and reseller hosting accounts.
Using Anycast enables higher performance, lower latency, and scaling across multiple sites, better meeting our customers’ needs.
Anycast Name Servers
Our new nameservers, Anycast compatible, are as follows:
Stopping Legacy DNS
On September 30GreenGeeks will shut down our legacy DNS infrastructure and default to Anycast-enabled nameservers.
Old nameservers, with the IP addresses listed below, will no longer respond after September 30:
- chi-ns1 (188.8.131.52)
- chi-ns2 (184.108.40.206)
- ams-ns1 (220.127.116.11)
- sgp-ns1 (18.104.22.168)
GreenGeeks has already redirected old name server aliases to the Anycast DNS cluster and automatically adjusted domains registered through the GreenGeeks registrar to Anycast NS.
Domains registered through third-party domain registrars must be updated manually.
Although old nameserver aliases will continue to work after the nameserver is shut down, GreenGeeks strongly recommends updating all nameservers to Anycast DNS to avoid incompatibilities between the primary nameservers and the registrar. of domain.
Private Name Servers
For users with private nameservers under non-GreenGeeks domains, you will need to adjust the IP address assigned to each nameserver to match those provided below:
- ns1.domain.com (22.214.171.124)
- ns2.domain.com (126.96.36.199)
Private name server adjustment is a two-step process involving registering each name server’s IP address with the domain registrar and updating the corresponding A record in the GreenGeeks DNS zone.
