How to receive a delegation from .hu

I would like to expand this page, giving step-by-step delegation instructions. Contributions are welcome.

The registrar requires that you have at least two DNS servers, and that their IP addresses not be in a single block of 256 addresses. (Reported May 2001.) If all your computers are in the same block, you will be forced to obtain third-party DNS service. This requirement is bad practice, because it ignores the costs of third-party DNS service. Consider obtaining a .com name instead.

The registrar also requires that you make zone transfers available to,, and (Reported May 2001.) This requirement is bad practice: typical sites should not even set up TCP service, let alone zone transfers.

The registrar also requires that mail service be available for postmaster@yourname.hu where yourname.hu is the delegated name. (Reported May 2001.)
