Reset DNS Settings for a Domain

Learn how to reset your DNS configuration for a domain back to the default settings applied by 1&1.

Please note:
Resetting your DNS settings back to default will cause your domain and e-mail to utilize the 1&1 services.

Please make sure you are prepared for the DNS reset before performing the reset as DNS changes may take 24-48 hours to complete.

Step 1
Log in to the 1&1 Control Panel using your Customer ID OR domain name and your password.

If you have only one package, you will land on the Administration page. If you have more than one package, select the package in question to reach its Administration page.
