HOW TO CREATE CHILD NAME SERVER

 

Before explaining Child Name Server, it’s better to get information about DNS (Domain Name Services).

DNS is a system that points a domain name to an IP address. DNS is used to remember domain names instead of IP address. When typing a website domain name in browser’s address bar, DNS servers translate it to the IP address where the website is hosted.

 

Name Servers

The Name Servers keep some records which contain domain names, IPs and some other information.

If your website is hosted on Monovm then the name servers used to manage your DNS records will be Monovm’s general name servers, like:

monovm.mercury.orderbox-dns.com

monovm.venus.orderbox-dns.com

monovm.earth.orderbox-dns.com

monovm.mars.orderbox-dns.com

 

Child Name Servers

Child name servers are Name Servers which are registered with the Registry under your domain name. You have to register Child Name Servers with the Registry before you can use them as Name Servers for registering other domain names. Child Name Servers can be registered only by the owner of the domain name under which they are registered.

How to add a record in control panel

For creating Name Servers, you must define records which map a domain name to the IP address. At this tutorial, we use Cpanel as hosting management panel to define these records.

  1. Login to CPanel and in DOMAIN section click on "Zone Editor"

1.1

 

 2. On this page click on "+A Record" button in front of your domain name. An “A record”maps a domain name to the IP address (Version 4) of the server hosting the domain. –For IPv6 you must use “AAAA Record”-

3. Enter the name that you want to define as Child Name Server and mention your server’s IP address then click on "Add an A Record"
