How to customize DNS:

each NS. (see below for more detail at each registrar)

the domain desired.

Warning, this page will create an actual nameserver
for which advanced configuration and software is required
at the ip address of the computer. Do not create a
nameserver unless software has already been installed to
run the nameserver.
To modify name server:

2. Click on "Modify" link to the right of the
nameserver and then replace the old IP with your new IP
3. Click on "Modify Nameserver" button and
submit the change.
The change should be propagated through the Internet
within 48 hours. You need to resubmit the nameserver
change for all the domains using the nameserver you
IP address stands for Internet Protocol, this is the
number your server or computer is assigned by the network
you are on (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)
FQDN stands for Fully Qualified Domain Name which,
essentially is the nameserver itself (ns.domainname.com)
To create a nameserver based on your existing domain,
please follow these steps:
1. Log into http://manage.opensrs.net with the domain
name, username and password. If you don't have these you
will have to contact your Reseller.
2. Choose "Name Servers" from the options at
the top of the page.
3. Scroll to the bottom of the page, where it says "If
you want to create of modify a name server based on
domain name, click here".
4. Click there :)
5. You will see a set of boxes, one of which will accept
data. The second box will not be editable, and will
display your domain name. Choose a nameserver prefix and
type it into the box. PLEASE NOTE: DO NOT USE WWW or MAIL
AS A NAME SERVER PREFIX! ns1 or dns1 would be a good idea.
The full contents of these boxes (eg. Dns1.yourdomainname.com)
will be the name of the new nameserver. In the IP box,
you will need to type in the IP number of your domain's
6. Click on the "Create Nameserver" option.
You should see a note that says "Name server dns1.yourdomainname.com
is registered. This means the registry "knows"
of the existence of your name server. It will be 24 - 48
hours before your nameserver info propagates to the rest
of the world.

name server appears by default as your domain name.
NOTE: Please DO NOT enter www as the beginning
extension for your name server. This will cause
forwarding problems in the future.

below name of the server, EXACTLY as the ISP has given
them to you.
