Custom Nameservers


#1

Does anyone know if there’s a way to setup custom nameservers at DH. Could it be done if I purchased two unique IP’s? Would I need an additional service like EasyDNS?

I would really be interested in this if it were possible.

Any Ideas?

I think there’s some stuff in the “archives” of this forum. Basically, we don’t really encourage it, but if you want to do it, there’s a cost of $25 setup per nameserver (generally 2 or 3), plus a monthly fee for the IP. You don’t add the IPs to your account as unique IPs, though - they come out of different subnets - the IPs and charges are added as part of the setup process. My guess is that some point we’ll automate it further, but right now, the setup is a royal pain.

The other thing that’s a pain is that new domains added to your domain won’t default to your nameservers, so you’d have to write support every time you want to add a domain pointing to those nameservers.

Thanks for the quick response. I think I’ll wait and see if I really need them first…
