How do I create a new Nameserver?

If you have an IP address for the hosting location of your website and would like to point a domain name to this address, please follow the guidelines below to create a Nameserver:

To create a Nameserver, you will need a domain name registered in your Fabulous account, and a valid IP address.

Nameservers usually take the following format:

    ns1.domain.com
    ns2.domain.com, and so on.

Using the 'ns1' format for the host portion of the Nameserver is standard because it makes it clear that this address is a Nameserver. However, you could use a different format to this such as 'serverone.domain.com'.

Please note: To redirect a domain name, you must have 2 different Nameserver records which correspond to 2 different IP addresses.

To create a new Nameserver record please follow the steps below:

  1. Go to the Nameservers page in the Manage area of your account.
  2. Click on the "Create Nameserver" button at the bottom of the page and a pop up window will launch.
  3. In the "FDQN" field, enter the host portion of the Nameserver address (e.g. ns1)
  4. Use the drop-down menu to select the domain name you would like to use for the Nameserver.
  5. Enter at least one valid IP address into the "IPs" text box.
  6. Click on the "Continue" button.

The pop up window will reload summarizing the changes performed.
