All domains purchased from APC comes with DNS Management. You can use Ascio’s / Public Domain Registry’s / OpenSRS's nameservers depending on who your current domain registrar is. If you do not know which nameserver you should use, please send in an email to support@apc.sg to enquire.

Note the following limitations of using DNS Management below which comes with the domain:
1. As you are using the DNS record from the registrar (Ascio / Public Domain Registry / OpenSRS), APC will not have control or will be responsible for any issues including downtime to the domain company’s DNS server. Our DDoS protection does not cover external DNS that belongs to the domain companies as well.
