This tutorial assumes you have a domain name registered through networksolutions.com and starts from their homepage.

Now we’ll learn how to register private nameservers or custom nameservers.

Creating or registering private nameservers must be done with the domain registry where the domain name resides. To create, for example, ns1.youtdomain.com here, the domain yourdomain.com must be at this REGISTRY.

Click the ACCOUNT MANAGER tab.

Enter your namecheap.com USERNAME and PASSWORD in the boxes provided, then click LOGIN.          

You are now logged in to your account. Scroll down.

Click the MANAGE HOST SERVERS link at the bottom left of your screen.

Enter the new domain server in the left most box and then click continue.

Now enter the new nameservers associated IP ADDRES in the provided box. The IP address should have been provided to you by your webhost.

Click the CONTINUE button to have the new nameserver created.

When finished creating the nameserver, you’ll have to REPEAT the process to register your second name server. Registering private name servers, requires you to register TWO SEPARATE NAMESERVERS (i.e.: ns1 and ns2) each with its own unique IP Address.

Remember that after you submit your new nameservers and IP Addresses to the registry, IT CAN TAKE 24-48 HOUR for the new nameservers to propagate after you make these DNS changes.
