How can I get VPN servers entry-IP addresses?

AirVPN servers have at least 4 entry-IP addresses (4 IPv4 and equivalent 4 IPv6 addresses). Different entry-IP addresses provide different tunnel protocols or abilities, please see specs

We have Fully Qualified Domain Names that resolve into one of the recommended server entry-IP addresses or ALL entry-IP addresses, in both cases according to geographical location. Such FQDNs are used automatically by our Configuration Generator.

The recommended server is updated every 5 minutes, to balance users between servers.

Available FQDNs which resolve into the entry-IP address you need are explained below:

  • {name [entry-IP address number]}.vpn.airdns.org - to obtain the best entry-IPv4 address for specified name.
  • {name [entry-IP address number]}.ipv6.vpn.airdns.org - to obtain the best entry-IPv6 address for specified name.
  • {name [entry-IP address number]}.all.vpn.airdns.org - to obtain all IPv4 and IPv6 entry addresses for the specified name which can be an ISO two-letters country code (ISO-3166), a continent ('europe', 'america',' asia', 'oceania', 'africa'), or 'earth'
  • {server name}.airservers.org for entry-IPv4 address 1 of a specific server. Note that resolution by server name is limited, so use the Configuration Generator or contact us if you need specific addresses you can't obtain via DNS. You can see server names in the real time servers monitor in our web site page status

[entry-IP number] is the entry-IP address number (2, 3  4), and it is optional. Don't valorize it in order to obtain the first entry-IP address, otherwise suffix the country code with the proper digit (e.g. 'be' for Belgium recommended/best rated server first entry-IP address, 'be3' for Belgium recommended server third entry-IP address).


  • nl.vpn.airdns.org resolves into the recommended server first entry-IPv4 for country NL (the Netherlands)
  • nl.ipv6.vpn.airdns.org resolves into the recommended server entry-IPv6 address for country NL (the Netherlands)
  • ca3.vpn.airdns.org  resolves into the recommended server third entry-IPv4 address (tls-crypt connection) for country CA (Canada)
  • europe.all.vpn.airdns.org resolves into all the first entry addresses of all VPN servers in continent Europe.
  • alshat.airservers.org resolves into the first entry address of server whose name is "Alshat".
