Add my own host names as nameservers

If you need to create nameservers for your domain name, you can register your own host names using a domain you have registered through us. You can add up to 13 host names, depending on the maximum number the TLD registry allows.

WARNING: This feature is intended for advanced users.

To add your own host names as nameservers

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy account.
  2. On your product list next to Domains, click the Text Icon (Plus sign button) to expand the list:
  3. Expand Domains List

  4. Next to the domain you want to manage, under the Action section, click on the Manage DNS button:
  5. Manage DNS Button

  6. Under the Advanced Features section, click Host names.
  7. Click Add.
  8. Enter the Hostname and Host IP Address you want to use.
  9. You don't have to type the domain name in the Hostname field; it will populate for you:
    Domain auto populates

  10. Click Save.

After creating your own nameservers, you need to set the domain name to use them (more info).
