The DNS Propagation Checker page allows you to instantly perform a DNS lookup to check your website's current IP address and DNS record information against multiple nameservers located in different parts of the world:

Viewing Nameservers

This information is very handy if your domain points to non-DreamHost nameservers and you need to configure any or all of these records manually to point to DreamHost services

If you are using DreamHost hosting services (including parking or a redirect of the site), and your domain is registered with DreamHost, you should use these name servers:

  • ns1.dreamhost.com
  • ns2.dreamhost.com
  • ns3.dreamhost.com

As long as the nameservers are pointing to DreamHost, the records on your domain’s DNS page will be applied to your domain.
