New nameservers need to be registered with your registrar before they can be used. For example, if you are opening a reseller account and given the option to set your own nameservers, you’ll probably want to select ones reflecting your primary domain name. If your primary domain is, you’ll need to register the nameservers (two at minimum in most cases) and How to register these nameservers differs from registrar to registrar. See our guides below for examples.

  • Click on my account -> manage domains -> click on a domain name
  • Under advanced options select nameserver registration
  • Enter your nameservers and IP addresses followed by “add nameservers”

  • Click on manage -> nameservers > and then “create nameserver” at the very bottom of the page under “Nameserver Edit.”
  • FQDN is ns1 followed by your domain registered at fabulous, followed by its IP address. Click “continue” and repeat for ns2.

  • Click on my account -> domain list -> followed by the domain you wish to set up nameservers for.
  • Select “click here to add” below “Domain Host Information”
  • Enter your nameservers and IP addresses followed by “register nameservers”

  • Click on domains -> register DNS -> “Register a Nameserver Name”
  • Enter your nameservers and IP addresses

A similar process exists for most other registrars. If we have not covered your particular registrar, please post below.
