What Are Private Name Servers?
Private name servers are your own DNS name servers, for example, ns1.ggexample.com and ns2.ggexample.com.
What Are My Private Name Server IP Addresses?
The IP addresses can be found in the welcome email that was sent to you when you opened your account.
What Are the Benefits of Private Name Servers?
The benefits are mainly in branding, there are no technical benefits. If you prefer not to use private name servers, you can use the anonymous name servers ns1.websitehostserver.net and ns2.websitehostserver.net.
How Do I Set Up Private Name Servers?
You create private name servers at the registrar that manages your domain. Every registrar has a different method for setting up private name servers. Look for a control such as “Register DNS”, “Create DNS,” or “Add DNS” in your domain management portal. If you have any questions, contact the domain registrar and let them know that you would like to set up private name servers.
Important note: remember that setting up private name servers is not the same as changing name servers to point to a different hosting provider. You will not be able to switch the name servers on any of your domain names to your private name servers until the private name servers are created at your domain registrar.
My Private Name Servers Have Been Registered, Now What?
When your name servers have been set up at your domain registrar, open a ticket in your GreenGeeks Account Manager with the subject line “Reseller Private Nameservers” and include the private name server names in the body of the message so we can make the necessary configuration updates. When the configuration is complete, you can change the name servers on your domains to the new private name servers.
