Finally, click SUBMIT to save the information.

2. Point the IP to the domain

Note : NameSilo update log is quite slow, cause the default TTL configuration is quite high. Therefore, when changing IP or updating the record, you should adjust the TTL to 3600 to update the fastest record.

This function only works if you use Namesilo’s default nameserver, see section 1. If you are using an external nameserver, go to the domain admin’s DNS page or switch to the Namesilo’s default nameserver.

– To change the IP for the domain, click on the domain and then click Update in the DNS Records.

– The current record will be displayed, you can directly edit or delete the record.

Once you have chosen Namesilo as your landing page, your ability to move domains is very low. However, I still guide this section for those who want to unlock the domain, get the code Auth code and transfer domain to another provider.

The first thing when you want to move domain is Unlock domain. After you click on the domain you want in the domain management, in the domain Locked click Unlock.

8. Some other functions

Namesilo provides users with a lot of useful functions for easier domain management on the top of the account management page.

2-Factor Authentication

The two-layer security feature makes it easier than ever to protect your Namesilo account.

Once activated on the account maintenance page, you will need to enter a code from the phone every time you sign in.

According to me, this function is only available with smartphones with the app installed Google Authenticator or Authy.

Domain Defender

This is also a security enhancement function for Namesilo domains.

With Domain Defender, you will set security questions for the domain, only if the correct answer to these questions can do the editing, updating domain. Up to 5 questions.

If combined with 2-Factor Authentication, no one can do anything with your account or domain.

Portfolio manager

This feature helps you group domains and manage them more easily. This is useful when used with the subaccount functionality below.

Sub-Account Manager

When you push a domain through another account, you will have no rights to that domain. However, in case you are lent or leased to another person, the extra account creation function is what you will need.

You can create the unlimited number of accounts, set expiration date, grant permissions with Portfolio to manage the domain.

The portfolio must be created before creating additional accounts.

Domain History

All changes to both primary and secondary domains will be stored here for easier tracking.

Domain Link Manager

When you have multiple domains, managing them is very difficult.

Namesilo provides the Domain Link Manager tool so you can easily keep track of all current domains, whether they are in another provider or Namesilo.

This feature is still in beta, providing general information including date of domain creation, expiration date, date of update and nameserver.

Namesilo Discount Program

The new registration/ transfer/renewal domain in Namesilo is relatively cheap, but you can still get a lower price when you activate the Discount Program.

Specifically, when you pre-load an amount and pay using this amount, the domain price will be reduced a bit. A detailed price list can be found here.
