Reseller Private Nameservers

Quick Steps

  • Step 1: Create host records for your nameservers at the domain registrar.
  • Step 2: Input the corresponding IP addresses for the records.
  • Step 3: In cPanel, under DNS Manager, add A records for all your nameservers.
  • Step 4: You can now start using your custom nameservers.

As a reseller, you have the ability to create custom nameservers, also known as “Private Nameservers”.

Important Note: When configuring your private/custom reseller nameservers, do not use the server’s direct IP – please be sure to use the IP’s that we specify in the our reseller & private/custom nameservers guides.

In order to create your custom nameservers, you will need to create 2 host records at your domain registrar:

ns1.yourdomain.com 
ns2.yourdomain.com
ns3.yourdomain.com
ns4.yourdomain.com

These of course, can be anything you’d like regarding the ns1/ns2.

You will need to input the IP addresses of our DNS cluster for each of these entries, which you can find below:

/**Primary**/
209.141.38.42
158.69.112.200

/**Secondary**/
198.251.83.218
158.69.222.190

From here, you can now utilize your custom nameservers for any domains hosted on our servers.

**NOTE** When using custom/private nameservers, you MUST also create the corresponding A record inside of the DNS manager for your main account of the custom/private nameservers.

Important Note: When configuring your private/custom reseller nameservers, do not use the server’s direct IP – please be sure to use the IP’s that we specify in the our reseller & private/custom nameservers guides.
