    Can anyone help with setting up custom nameservers?

    i want most of my domains to use one of my domains as the namesever,

    ns1.iamforsale.net
    ns2.iamforsale.net

    I spoken to HEARTINTERNET, who i register with, they cant help. :(
    i have a hosting account with Dreamhost and i have attempted to do it on dreamhost before, with little success (it worked for a while - but the stopped, i guess Dreamhost changed their IP or something)

    Any Ideas?
    Thanks.

    I think the HI package starts at £30 per month - I'm not sure if it's an add on or included by default though.

    Hostgators reseller package let you do this as well for $25 per month (about £15) is you're counting the pennies.

    Hello Sean,

    Firstly I am not familiar with DreamHost and the way they work however setting your domains custom name servers is fairly simple.

    There are actually two main ways to achieve this. One by the register and two by your control panel.

    You need to add A records which point to your hosts name servers. For example, if you was using ns1.iamforsale.net/ns2.iamforsale.net you would add this to your zone:

    ns1 A 66.33.206.206
    ns2 A 208.96.10.221

    Then of course, you would login to your domain register and amend your name servers from ns1.dreamhost.com/ns2.dreamhost.com to ns1.iamforsale.net/ns2.iamforsale.net

    If you have any problems at all, feel free to contact me.

    Hope this helps!
