How do I create custom nameservers?

Why do I need custom nameservers?

To configure your custom nameservers you need to own or manage a domain.

Custom name servers help differentiate you from the competition.

  • As a reseller your clients can differentiate your brand to others. Because the nameservers are under your domain. 
  • Uniformity provides a greater sense of security for your clients making your nameservers easily identifiable as part of your brand.
  • If you ever switch registrar your clients will not need to update nameservers. Giving you more freedom.

  • In the DNS area create 2 new A records (One for each of the new nameservers).
  • These A records should appear as follows:

ns1.domain.com – 149.255.60.1 

ns2.domain.com – 185.53.57.60

  • After the A records have been created, contact the domains registrar. Ask them to create glue records for your new nameservers.
  • We will then add your new nameservers to the global list. Ensuring that when you update the client’s domains the new nameservers will be accepted.
  • Please allow some time for the DNS to fully propagate.
