How to setup Custom Nameservers

In some cases you will need to create your own nameservers. This guide will explain how to do this from your client area.

Custom Nameservers

You can set up your own, domain based, nameservers that you can use instead of our nameservers. While mostly cosmetic, it can give the appearance of professionalism. If you would like to set up your own, custom nameservers, you can do this from your client area.

  1. Login to your Client Area. You can access the client area here.
  2. Click on your Domains section.

  3. Find the domain you wish to update and click on the wrench.

  4. Click on the Private Nameservers button in the menu on the left-hand side.

You should now be on the Register Nameservers screen.

In the Register a NameServer Name section, you can enter the nameservers name (like ns1 or ns2) and the corresponding IP addresses. Click Save Changes to save the nameserver.

You may also modify or delete old nameservers that you no longer need in this section.

If you have any questions, please be sure to reach out to our support staff by putting in a ticket.
