Create custom nameservers

To configure your custom nameservers, you need to have registered a domain name or manage a domain.

Custom name servers help differentiate you from the competition.

  • As a reseller, your clients can differentiate your brand from others. This is because nameservers are under your custom 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.
