How do I register, update, delete, or check status of nameservers using my domain name?  How do I create glue records for my nameservers?

 

To register a nameserver, please follow these steps:

  • Login to your account.
  • Select the main menu option "Domain - Domain Tools" 
  • Select "Custom DNS registration".
  • Enter the Name Server and IP Address (domain must be in your account)
  • Click "Register Name Server".


You can also click on the tabs to update, delete, or check status of a nameserver for your domain.



You can enter IP addresses in the following format:

  • IPv4 (e.g., 192.168.0.1).
  • IPv6 (e.g., 2001:252:0:1:0:0:2008:9).

In order to register nameservers, the domain in question must be registered with us.  The above instructions will only work for .com, .net, .org and .uk domains.  To register or update nameservers using .EU domains, please see the article, "How to Register or Update Nameservers Using .EU Domains".  To register or update nameservers using other TLDs, please submit a support ticket with the below attributes:
