How to Configure Private Name Servers for VPS and Dedicated Servers

January 12, 2023 / Dedicated Server Virtual Server

You can set up your name servers if you have a dedicated server or a virtual private server. Moreover, in this article, you will learn more about it.

  1. Obtaining IP addresses to point your domain name servers at is the first step.
  2. If the IP addresses are not listed in your welcome email, you may always contact our WHUK support staff.
  3. Once you have the IPs, you may have your domain registrar register the name servers.

Now, follow the instructions if WHUK is the domain registrar for your domain.

  1. Please get in touch with the firm that registered your domain name if you need name server support.
  2. You must configure the name servers on the server once they have been registered.

Follow these instructions to do that:

  1. Go to the DNS Functions section >> DNS Zone Manager menu after logging into WHM.
  2. Select Manage after selecting the domain for which you want to configure name servers.
  3. Update the SOA record to reflect your primary name server and an email address that can be used.
  4. When finished, save the changes by adding “A” records for domains pointing to the IP addresses you used to register the name servers.
  5. Make sure to use the name servers on the domain registrar side as well as in the WHM >> DNS Zone Manager >> domain name in question >> NS records and SOA record if you want to use the newly created personal name servers for the domain name itself.
  6. Go to the Basic Webhost Manager Setup >> Basic Config menu in WHM and add your name servers if you want the personal name servers to be automatically applied for all newly created cPanel accounts and necessary to be specified for all addon before adding them to cPanel.

This way you can configure private name servers for VPS and dedicated servers. Enjoy your hosting while the DNS updates take 24-72 hours to spread globally. For more help contact our support team at your earliest.
