Vultr offers free DNS hosting for customers' domains. The nameservers are on an AnyCAST network and ensure fast DNS resolution. To use Vultr's DNS, you would need to point your domain to the DNS nameservers listed below. After that, you will need to add your domain in the Vultr DNS control panel.
The following DNS record types are supported by Vultr DNS:
Note: Before using custom NS records, please refer to "Vanity nameservers" in the "Limitations" section below.
The following limitations apply to Vultr DNS:
arpazones, thus not allowing creation of PTR records. If you need to create a PTR record, please review our reverse DNS article.

Vultr allows you to enable DNSSEC for any domain on your account. To do so, simply navigate to the "Zone Settings" tab within the Vultr DNS control panel and toggle the DNSSEC switch on.
You will have to provide your domain's registrar with the DS records listed on the "Zone Settings" page to finish DNSSEC setup. These records are unique to each domain, and cannot be recovered in the event you disable DNSSEC.
Once the DS records have been set with your registrar, you can verify your DNSSEC setup with a tool like DNSViz.
Vultr DNS cannot be used with cPanel in an automated fashion. If you run a cPanel server and plan on using Vultr DNS, you will need to manually add/edit your DNS zones and records. cPanel DNS clustering does not support Vultr's API.
The process of configuring SRV records is prone to human error. Vultr DNS simplifies the process by allowing you to enter most of the required parameters in one section. When you click "Add New Record", you will be presented with an interface from which you select the "Record Type". After selecting "SRV", you will input your record name (example:
_sip._udp). In the next section, you will add your record as follows:
weight port target. The
priority value has its own field.
