2. Click on the “Create Nameserver” link at the top of the page.
3. Enter your hostname and IP address for the nameserver and click Create Nameserver.

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.

2. Click on "Modify" link to the right of the nameserver and then replace the old IP with your new IP address.
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 modified.

IP address stands for Internet Protocol, this is the number your server or computer is assigned by the network you are on (

FQDN stands for Fully Qualified Domain Name which, essentially is the nameserver itself (


To create a nameserver based on your existing domain, please follow these steps:

1. Log into 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. 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 name server.
6. Click on the "Create Nameserver" option.

You should see a note that says "Name server 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.


1. Please log into your account.
2. Click on "Domain List."
3. Click on the link of the domain you would like to register a name server for.
4. Click on the "Register Name Server" link at the bottom of the screen.
5. You are then prompted to add the first part of the name server extension. We strongly suggest that you use ns1 and ns2 as the beginning extensions. The rest of the 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.

6. Enter the IP address in the text boxes directly below name of the server, EXACTLY as the ISP has given them to you.
7. Then click on the "Update" button, and your name server is registered.

*You can then register a second name server.


* host.domain.tld (example: "")
