DNS stands for Domain Name Server, which is a computer responsible for translating domain names into IP addresses. It also provides details of the mail server responsible for handling your domains email. DNS values ashould be set to:

ns1.instanthosting.com.au
ns2.instanthosting.com.au

Please note that setting DNS values to a particular server, including ours, is only half of the story. The name servers themselves must be configured to recognise your domain name. In the case of using our name servers, you can update this information yourself through the management interface - using the URL forwarding feature. If you're using an ISP's nameservers, you will have to ask them.
