Do I have to use


Hi, I don’t want people to know where I am hosted, is there a way I can use my own custom dns server instead of the default so that if someone does a whois on my domain it won’t show dreamhost?



The IP address of one of my sites is
Doing a reverse DNS lookup returns this: domain name pointer

So anybody curious enough will find that you’re hosted at Dreamhost. Using your own name servers will only provide minimal stealth for your hosting.
