Using DDNS but with DNS Hosted elsewhere

"Does your DNS Hosting service allow us to use our own domain, with DNS records hosted elsewhere, for DNS addressing?"

We support this if you delegate a portion of your domain to our nameservers, then purchase Paid DNS Hosting.

For example, suppose you have, but you want to resolve to a dynamic address using our Premium DDNS service.  To accomplish this, please purchase Paid DNS Hosting service for ''.  Then, with your existing domain hosting company, add the delegation records for to point to to  Using BIND style zone records, this would look something like this: IN NS IN NS IN NS IN NS IN NS IN NS IN NS

This will mean that and all hostname and subdomain records at a high level will resolve via the name servers (i.e., will be resolved via the name servers.)

We would only be able to assist with issues which are directly related to the ChangeIP DNS, DDNS and account settings, we could not assist with configurations or settings at the existing domain hosting company.

For a simpler solution consider transfering the domain to ChangeIP where DNS and DDNS configurtions will be in one place.
