Use our advanced DNS with any domain, registered anywhere!
What is FreeDNS?
Namecheap offers FreeDNS, our advanced DNS hosting service, for people whose registrars don’t provide DNS hosting with domain registration. And we offer it free of charge because we’re absolutely certain that once you’ve experienced Namecheap’s quality of service, you’ll want to use us as your domain registrar too.
We're happy to announce that our PremiumDNS service was recently launched! Read about the details below or visit our PremiumDNS page for more information.
Why should I use FreeDNS?
Our secure, reliable, geographically dispersed name servers can significantly increase your site’s speed and performance. The management console is both intuitive and powerful, technical support is available 24/7, and our service supports any domain or subdomain.
What DNS services do you provide?
Our FreeDNS supports A/AAAA/CNAME/NS/MX/TXT/SRV DNS record types. We also provide DNS updates with DynamicDNS option. Email/URL forwarding and DynamicDNS are also included free of charge.
Can I use FreeDNS as a backup?
Certainly. FreeDNS works great as a backup to your own DNS servers or your hosting provider’s DNS.
