Summary

DNS Opt Out Servers

EarthLink routes erroneous domain requests to a custom  search page rather than to the standard The domain you requested could not be found  error page that most browsers show.  The page will offer suggestions to other domains you might be attempting to access.


In rare circumstances DNS error page routing may cause problems for some EarthLink customers running various speciality programs or services.  As a work around, EarthLink provides two DNS addresses that do not route to our error page.  These DNS addresses can be used as a means of opting out of the error re-routing service. Either of these below IP addresses can be primary or secondary:

  • 207.69.188.172
  • 207.69.188.171
