How do I setup private nameservers?

If you have a VPS with cPanel with us, you can register your own nameservers (ns1.yourdomain.com and ns2.yourdomain.com).

First of all, you need to obtain IP addresses to point your private nameservers to. You can check them in your Welcome email, or contact us via HelpDesk in order for Hosting team to double check them for you. Once you have IPs on hand, you can go ahead and register the nameservers on the side of your domain registrar.

If your domain is registered with another company, please get in touch with them for the nameservers setup assistance.

Lastly, when the nameservers are registered, you need to set them up on the server:

1. Login to WHM and go to DNS Functions section > Edit DNS Zone menu.
2. From the drop-down list choose the domain you would like to set the nameservers for, click on Edit.
3. Update SOA record indicating your primary nameserver and the usable email address:

edit soa record

4. Then create A records for ns1.domain.com and ns2.domain.com pointing to the IP addresses you used while registering the nameservers, and Save the Changes:

edit-a-records

Allow 24-72 hours for the DNS changes to propagate worldwide.
