We often receive queries about how to register custom DNS nameservers for GoDaddy domains.

If your domain is “domain.com”, your custom nameservers would be “ns1.domain.com” and “ns2.domain.com”.

Follow the below instructions to create nameservers for your domain name.


  • Log in to your GoDaddy Account Manager.
  • Next to the Domains area, click “Launch”. Choose the domain name you would like to use to register the custom DNS nameservers.
  • Go to “Host Summary” section and click “Add”.
    • Hostname : ns1
    • Host IP : <IP provided by hosting>
    • Hostname : ns2
    • Host IP : <Secondary IP provided by hosting>

It takes a few hours for the nameservers to take effect and propagate.
