What Is Authoritative DNS Server's IP address for Cloudflare?


#1

Hi, I would like to check if my updates have been updated on the authoritative dns server via the dig command.

I have tried this command, dig @8.8.8.8 +short NS domain.com and was wondering if Cloudflare has it’s own version of “8.8.8.8” that i can check reliably that the changes made to the records are updated.

Hey there. Someone is sure to correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe all of Cloudflare is authoritative, so you may use any of the available nameservers, such as: dig @bob.ns.cloudflare.com +short ns domain.com or (my favorite) dig @andy.ns.cloudflare.com +short ns domain.com to check
