If you have a Reseller account with us, you can register your own nameservers (ns1.yourdomain.com and ns2.yourdomain.com) to provide your clients with.

First of all, you need to obtain IP addresses to point your private nameservers to. You can check them in an email from our Billing team or contact us via HelpDesk in order for our Hosting team to double-check them for you.

Once you have IPs at hand, you can go ahead and register the nameservers on the side of your domain registrar.
