Zone hosting: Free and Paid options for your DNS zones

We offer two different types of DNS Hosting for Domain Names - Free and Paid. We recommend Paid.


There are plenty of ways to host your domain's DNS zone, however we've refined our DNS Hosting to make sure you're well looked after.

You can choose to either take advantage of DNS Hosting with 3x Nameservers, managed online via a simple interface in my.LEOPARD, or enjoy the benefits of 4x internationally redundant nameservers, managed online via cPanel on our purpose-built DNS Hosting infrastructure.

Ordering our $10/year/domain DNS Hosting:

  1. Head over here to order it for your domain name
  2. Once ordered and paid for, prepare then update DNS to:
    1. ns1.hostingservices.net.au
    2. ns2.hostingservices.net.au
    3. ns3.hostingservices.net.au
    4. ns4.hostingservices.net.au
  3. Using details in the DNS Hosting welcome email, sign in & get going!

Utilising the free zone hosting:

  1. Click through to the domain name in my.LEOPARD
  2. On the right-hand-side, click Domain Addons in the menu
    1. Follow through a free "order" for the DNS Hosting feature

    1. ns1.nameserver.net.au
    2. ns2.nameserver.net.au
    3. ns3.nameserver.net.au
  4. On that same right-hand-side menu, click "DNS Hosting / Forwarding"
    1. Click + and create any record, then reload the page to see the records
    2. From there, you can continue to add new records/lines and update existing ones
