Registering Private Nameservers for Domains Registered Through GreenGeeks

As a GreenGeeks reseller, the nameservers for your customer’s domains will be our nameservers on the websitehostserver.net domain (like chi-ns1.websitehostserver.net). If you prefer to use nameservers on your own domain (like ns1.ggexample.com), you can set the default nameservers in WebHost Manager (WHM).

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

Log in to GreenGeeks.

Click “My domains” then “My Domains” in the dropdown.

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

  • Click the “Register” button.

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