How to setup private Nameserver ?

Step 1: Register Your Name Servers at your Registrar
What are private name servers?
Private name servers would be ns1.yourdomain.com and ns2.yourdomain.com, instead of nameservers with a staticking.com domain.


What are my private name servers IP's?
For ns1.yourdomain.com, the IP is listed in your hosting account setup email.
(Example, Server IP: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)
For ns2.yourdomain.com, the IP is listed in your welcome email.
(e.g.  xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx )


How do I go about getting my private name servers setup?
You will now need to create the name servers at the place you registered your domain from. Every registrar has a different process for creating private name servers.
Try and look for something along the lines of "register DNS" "create DNS" "child name servers" or "add DNS" from within your account with your registrar. The only way to create Name Servers is by using the IP addresses we assigned to your ns1 and ns2.yourdomain.com If there isn't a field asking for the IP you are not at the right place.


Private Name Server Notes : 
Changing your domain's DNS is not the same thing as registering name servers. You will not be able to change your site's DNS to private name servers until your private name servers are registered with your domain registrar. Some registrars 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.


My private name servers are registered now what?
Step 2: Setting NS A Records
After your name servers have been created, you must add the necessary A records to your domain. After the A record update, you and your clients will be able to use your private name servers for all the domains which host with you.
