Registering Private Nameservers for Domains Registered Through GreenGeeks

As a GreenGeeks reseller, the name servers for your customer’s domains will be our name servers on the websitehostserver.net domain (like chi-ns1.websitehostserver.net).

If you prefer to use name servers on your own domain (like ns1.ggexample.com), you can set the default name servers in WebHost Manager (WHM).

To be used as a name server, a domain must first be registered as a name server. If you registered the domain name that you want to use for private name servers through GreenGeeks, this article will show you how to register the domain as a name server.

Log in to GreenGeeks.

In the navigation, click “Domains” then “My Domains.”

Click the “Manage” button for the domain you are working with.

click the "Manage" button

Click the “Domain Nameservers” tab.

click the "Domain Nameservers" tab

Scroll down to the “Nameserver Registration” section and click the “New Item” button.

click the "New Item" button

In the “Reseller Account Information” email you received when you set up your account, look for the “NS Private IP” entries.

Back in GreenGeeks:

  • Enter ns1 in the first box, and the “NS1 Private IP” address from the email into the third field.
  • Click the “Save” link.

enter the "NS1 Private IP" address from the reseller email

  • Enter ns2 in the first box, and the “NS2 Private IP” address from the email into the third field.
  • Click the “Save” link.

Like any DNS changes, these may take several hours to propagate. You can ping the new ns entries to determine when they have propagated.

Once the name servers have propagated, you can use your new private name servers as the default name servers in WebHost Manager (WHM).
