Creating Private Nameserver series

1. Creating Private Nameservers at 1and1.com

This demo assumes you have a domain name registered through 1and1.com, and starts from their home page.

Now let's learn how to create our own custom private nameservers.

Click "Login" to sign in to your account.

Enter your domain name and password, then click Login.

Then click the "Manage Domain" button.

Click the "Create Subdomain" link.

Creating Private Nameservers at 1and1.com is a bit different than most domain registrars. First, we must create two subdomains off of the domain we're creating the nameservers for.

Enter the first nameserver you want to create...

Then click "Create Subdomain"

Repeat the process to create a subdomain for the second nameserver.

Now click "Manage Subdomains".

The next step is to point the two subdomains we just created to each of the two IP addresses you want associated with them.

Click "Edit DNS Settings" for the subdomain.

Under A records (IP addresses), choose "Other IP address"

Then enter the IP address, and click "Save".

Click "Yes" to confirm.

Repeat the steps to assign an IP address to the second nameserver.

That's it! You've successfully created custom private nameservers for your domain name.

Please note that it could take up to 24 hours for your new private nameservers to propagate and be recognized across the internet.

This is the end of the tutorial. You now know how to create private nameservers at 1and1.com.
