DNS24, your free DNS service.

Welcome to DNS24! DNS24 is a free DNS hosting service, offering a complete and comprehensive set of DNS management features, complemented by dynamic DNS support and URL redirection - free of charge!

Are you looking for a nameserver with no restrictions, and an easy and intuitive management interface? If you have one or more domains but no name server or if you're not happy with the DNS services offered by your internet provider, DNS24 is just what you need. Get started.

Do you have a dynamic IP address but would like to have easy access to your NAS or Cloud server when you're out? Or maybe run a mailserver, a VPN or a fileserver at home? Many things require a for-a-fee fixed IP address, but a dynamic DNS service can often be an affordable alternative. Get started.

Latest updates:

2016/07/02:By default, the admin zone is now accessible by https only. The X509 SSL certificate was kindly provided by Let's Encrypt.

2016/05/30:Registration of new users is working again. Unfortunately, new users have been unable to register for about 4 weeks. Anyone who attempted to register during that time will have received the necessary information today. Please accept our sincere apologies for the delay.
