CenturyLink Domain Name Server (DNS)

The Domain Name System has been called the phonebook of the internet. It's a huge system of directories that translate text-based website names to series of numbers (IP addresses) that can be used by computers. 

Just like most internet service providers, CenturyLink automatically assigns a domain name server, or DNS, to all your devices that connect to our network. If you ever need to assign a static DNS (which is rare), you can find the information you need in the DNS table below. 

Do you have questions about DNS or IP addresses? Visit our FAQs or static IP support page for more information.
