Thread: Name Server?

  1. #1

    Question Name Server?

    does your name server(s) have to be a registered domain name?

    you register like then you have to register as a name server, usually the registrar will have this option in their control panel or something

    so, you register as the domain name, which will be the nameserver, then you assign as your nameserver for this domain? correct?

    Yes, and you must create the nameserver with your registrar.

    okay, now I understand.

    I register as a normal domain, then in a special section I make that domain a nameserver where I add the IP.

    Yes, there is a special registration for a name server. Just assigning a sub domain of ns1 wont be enough. You will need to register with an associated IP address with your domain registrar (usually free) so that it can be listed as a name server, and the other name servers in the world can communicate with it. If it's not registered any domains you host using that name server wont show up.
