Creating Private Nameservers at
Posted by TurnKey Admin on 30 March 2016 11:25 AM

This demo assumes you have a domain name registered through, and starts from their home page

Now let's learn how to create/register private nameservers (or custom nameservers)

Creating (or registering) private nameservers must be done with the domain registry where the domain name resides; to create here, the domain must be at this registry

1) Click on the log-in link here

2) Enter your account username and password in the boxes here

3) Then click the log-in button

You are now logged in to your account

4) Click Domains

5) Then select advanced tools

6) Then click register a name server

7) Enter the new nameserver name in this box

8) ..... and the new nameserver's associated IP address in this box (the IP address would have been provided to you by your web host)

9) When ready, click the submit button to have the new nameserver created

When finished creating this nameserver, you'll have to repeat the process to register your second nameserver..... "registering private nameservers" requires you to register two separate nameservers (i.e. ns1 and ns2), each with it's own unique IP address

Remember that after you submit your new nameservers and IP addresses to the registry, it can take 24-48 hours for the new nameservers to propagate, after you make these DNS changes (just like for new domain name registrations)

This is the end of the tutorial. You now know how to register/create new private (or custom) nameservers. Remember that the domain name for which you want nameservers created, must reside in this registry
