How does FreeDNS work?

After you enroll a domain for our Free DNS service, you need to change the nameservers' settings to

at your current Registrar within 10 days. We will then try to verify if you have pointed correctly the domain name to our nameservers by continuously monitoring your domain's DNS settings. The FreeDNS service will be activated once we make sure everything is set properly.

However, if there is a host similar to your domain/nameserver (in an active/processing state) within our database, you will be asked to confirm your identity by explicitly authorizing the request before pointing the host to our DNS, or if you are planning to use Namecheap's DNS as a backup, you will be asked to authorize the request.

That's it!
