Nameserver Record Report

Valid for versions 90 through the latest version



Last modified: July 8, 2020


The Nameserver Record Report interface lists the server’s nameserver information.

The displayed data updates nightly. If you need to force an update, run the /usr/local/cpanel/scripts/updatenameserverips script.

Nameserver Record Report

The interface lists information in the following columns:

  • Nameserver — The name of your system’s authoritative nameserver.

  • IP Addresses — Your nameserver’s IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.


    Due to networking requirements, you cannot run an IPv6-only cPanel & WHM server. You must have at least one IPv4 address.

  • Zones — The number of DNS zones that the nameserver hosts.

    You must properly configure the DNS entry for the nameserver’s hostname before the report can accurately supply the nameserver’s IP address information.

  • Actions — The actions that you can perform for each of your system’s nameservers. When you click Edit Zones, the DNS Zone Manager interface (WHM » Home » DNS Functions » DNS Zone Manager) will appear.


    This information does not always reflect the status of your server’s functional and in-use nameservers or domains. This report returns information based on the server’s local DNS zones, as well as localhost lookups of those records.
