When you buy a server for hosting and the provider gives you an IP address. You can set up a private nameserver such as ns1.yourdomain.com and ns2.yourdomain.com where yourdomain.com is your own domain name. In this way, you can add your own branding for your domain nameserver.
How to set up a private name server?
You can easily set up the private nameserver for your domain and point it to your server. To do that, follow the instructions given below:
Sign into the IT Nut Hosting client area. Go to the “Registered Domains” section from the dashboard and then click on the “Manage Domain” button (gear icon) beside the domain name to go to the domain management section.
From the “More” section on the left, click on the “Private Nameservers” link
On the next page, you will find the options to register a new private nameserver, modify an existing nameserver or delete an existing private nameserver of your domain. Enter the nameserver prefix on the Nameserver text box.
For example, ns1 or ns2 enter the IP address of the server on the IP Address text box. Then click on Save Changes
If you want to add multiple nameservers, you need to repeat these steps again.
That is, it!
Once you have set up the private nameserver for your domain from Client Area, you also need to set A record for them from the hosting control panel too. You might need to contact your service provider for help regarding setting up A record on the hosting environment. If you have to host with us, just follow this!
How can I delete my Private Nameserver Record?
If you no longer need the private nameserver for your domains that you have created, you can remove them easily too! Just follow these steps:
- From the same interface to create domain nameserver above, just scroll down and you will find “Delete Nameserver Section”
- Enter the nameserver prefix that you want to remove on the Nameserver box then click on the Save Changes button. Your specified public nameserver will be removed. For example, if your domain is yourdomain.com and you want to remove ns1.yourdomain.com, then just enter ns1 on the nameserver box and click on the “Save Changes” button.
By following those steps, the nameserver has been successfully removed.
