Free DNS hosting

Keep your website or complex web application available with Selectel. You can deploy unlimited domains and records on our DNS servers for free.

Why DNS?

DNS helps users get to a website; it also helps companies keep their websites searchable in search engines and being reachable in general.
When a user wants to get to a website, they type in its name. In order to get to the Selectel website, they need to type ’selectel.ru’ in the address bar — this is the website’s domain name. However, the servers storing data about this website do not understand human-readable format. To process the request and take the user to the website, the server needs an IP address, consisting of four numbers.

It is the DNS that converts website queries into server-readable IP addresses. It is a system that stores all domains and information about them. DNS allows people to find websites, and website owners to meet their visitors and customers.

What you need for DNS hosting at Selectel

Check your domain

If you don’t have a domain, check if the domain name you want to host on Selectel is available. You can do this for free using the Whois service.

Register it

Domain registration is the first step to launching an Internet project. This is a paid step that takes place not at Selectel, but at the registrar. We can’t influence the cost of your domain name, but we can help you save money on hosting — it’s free with Selectel.

Add to Selectel

To have your domains and DNS records stored with us, you should sign up with my.selectel.ru and add domains through your control panel. More information on adding and removing domains can be found at our knowledge base.
