How do I set up custom name servers?

You can make your own name servers and use them instead of ours with any hosting, reseller, VPS, or dedicated server plan. It is a two step process to complete before the new custom name servers will work.

1. You need to add A records in your local DNS first. You can do this in your advanced DNS tool in your cPanel or the edit a DNS zone tool in your WHM. You can also just add a ticket and we are happy to add the records for you. An example A record is.

ns1 14400 IN A and ns2 14400 IN A (replace with your actual domain used for the custom name servers). The 14400 ans IN is the default settings so you will just need to add the ns1 A and setting.

2. You need to register the name serrvers just like you do a domain name or a business name for example. You do this where your domain is registered. Each register has it's own way of doing this for example some calling registering a hostname, I have no idea why. Most call it custom name servers or register name servers. This is different than changing or using name servers. You ar eactually telling ICann that these name servers are used for resolving domains.

You'll need to give them the IPs for the custom name servers to point to. They are:

ns1. points to 

ns2. points to 

An example would be: pointing to 

and pointing to



These IPs are exact so make sure and submit them exactly how they are here. Once submitted most registeres take less than three hours to haver them be live.
