How can I find my own DNS server, nameserver IP address and other such DNS stuff online? Want to learn how to do a DNS setup? You must be looking for an answer to this question. Read further to know about some of the important DNS servers like dig, whois, cwhois, ICQ, and so on...
Nowadays, many companies have their own system of nameservers and as such, need to set up their own resellers as well. Some even go to the extent of having them set up directly by the major registrars (like godaddy or nameserver ip address). If you too are in this situation, you are not alone. There are many others like you who are trying to figure out how to setup custom nameservers and other DNS servers/ports for their companies.
If you are new to the whole process, you should know that it is a process that begins with getting your company details registered with the DNS provider like godaddy or whatever other provider. This means that your company's name and your DNS server (the nameservers) are successfully registered with the DNS provider. Next step is to get a web hosting account and register your domain names with this web hosting account. Once you have done this, you would need to find a way to connect your domain name server(s) to the internet. This is where two nameservers come into play...
Before we move ahead, please enter the correct domain name server IP address into the text box at the bottom of the screen. Please note that you are required to enter the IP address of the nameserver you want to bind to the internet. Please note also that if the name you typed is not available, just hit the back button at the top of the browser window to try again. If you don't see the "Bind to this DNS Zone" option, then please contact your domain registrar for instructions. Once done, the nameserver will be bound to the desired nameserver.
Once your bid has been successfully established, you may now proceed to logging into your godaddy control panel. To do this, please click on the appropriate link for your OS account. If you are using windows, you will see a page with a yellow highlight box next to the IP address label. Click on the highlighted yellow box and a new window will open up containing your webpage.
Now, we need to register our domain nameserver and the purpose of this is to bind them to the specific nameserver that will be used for the purpose of your website. You will need to scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will find the DNS setup panel. Again, please note that you are required to fill in all the required information. You may now proceed to the next step of registering your nameserver again by clicking on the "Login with Access Key" text box. If you have not entered any details yet, please double check them so that they match what you have entered.
Once you are done with this step, it is time to edit the settings of the IP address you have just set as the DNS of your website. There are two possible options for you here. The first one being the manual way of editing the settings, and the other one being the use of the Glue records editor. For further details on how to use the Glue records editor, please review the links at the end of this informative article. Once you are done with editing the settings, please save them.
The next step would be to log onto the super C editor and create or edit the desired nameserver software you have selected earlier. Please make sure that you do not try to edit any settings on the nameserver software if you are not an expert in it. This will only cause you to mess up the setup of your website. If you cannot find the desired nameserver software, you can search for it in the search engine and come across it. Save it to the location where you saved the files from before.
