Private Name Server Notes

Changing your domains DNS is not the same thing as registering name servers. You will not be able to change your sites DNs to private name servers until your private name servers are registered with your domain registrar. Some regsitars don't even have an option for you to create private name servers on our own. In many cases emailing them to do it is the only option.


If you can't figure out how to register your private name servers with your registrar read their FAQ and look for a question along the lines of "How do I register name servers" If you can't figure it out from either reading their faq or navigating through your account with them you will need to email them asking...

"I want to create name servers for my domain. They are with the IP of (insert the IP we assign here) and with the IP of (insert the IP we assign here)"

After the A record update, you and your clients will be able to use your private nameservers for all the domains which host with you.
