Custom Nameservers on cPanel

Custom nameservers on cPanel

Log into your cPanel (WHM) control panel.


Once you are logged in, click on DNS Functions. Please note that you need to add your domain for your nameservers before this step.


Select the domain that you want to set up the custom nameservers on and click Edit.


  • Now you can edit the zone file. You need to do the following:
  • Change the NS records.

  •  Change the SOA record.


Add the A records for your nameservers.

Now that you’ve added the A records, you can update your nameservers for your domain. Please note that you need to add the glue records (IP addresses) with the nameservers, to that the registry zone file can be update.
