virtual nameservers

Maybe nobody need these informations if not interested in webserver management :)

Virtual nameservers:

I’m pointing my nameservers to the IPs of my webhost’s nameservers. So it sounds like ‘virtual’ is the correct term. Using your example,

ns1.mydomain.com => IP of dnsmyhoster.com’s DNS server #1

ns2.mydoman.com => IP of dnsmyhoster.com’s DNS server #2

Step 1. Create the nameservers at the registrar (contact your registrar if you dont have direct access).

NS1.mydomain.com => IP#1

NS2.mydomain.com => IP#2

Step 2. Create the nameservers at the host.

It currently looks like this:

example.com. => ns1.dnsmadeeasy.com. (type: NS)

example.com. => ns2.dnsmadeeasy.com. (type: NS)

Should be changed like this:

example.com. => ns1.example.com. (type: NS)

example.com. => ns2.example.com. (type: NS)

Step 3. Add A records on the authoritative DNS servers at the host.

This looks easy enough.

ns1.example.com. => IP#1 (type: A record)

ns2.example.com. => IP#2 (type: A record)

happy hosting
