    Default Custom Host Names and DNS ??

    OK . . .I'll try not to confuse everyone.

    I have a reseller's account. At my old host I was able to set up custom DNS or host names to assign to the accounts I handled. I actually set them up in GoDaddy then pointed them at my server on HostGator.

    ns1.mydomain.com pointed to an IP address
    ns2.mydomain.com pointed to another IP address

    Yesterday or the day before I received notice from GlowHost that I was going to need to update the DNS records on all the accounts I handle when a (welcomed) server switch and update takes place. I'm on the "alpha" server.

    My question is, will I be able to do the same here as I did in the example above? Will I simply be able to simply designate new IP address and have everything point to the proper servers on GLowHost?

    Really makes it handy when I have to change the DNS records on 50 + domains, most in different client's accounts.

    Let's start there. Thanks in advance.

    Yes Garry, that is the purpose and benefit of having your own brand of nameservers. This way you only need to update 2 IP addresses associated with your branded NS, instead of changing the NS on all 50 domains individually.

    So how/where do I obtain the proper IP addresses to enter when I create a custom nameserver?

    In the example above, the IPs used were not the same as the IPs shown for each domain in the cPanel.

    As soon as your accounts are transferred you will be updated with this info. Or you can open the ticket for tech support with your request.

    Actually all my account are transferred into a reseller's account with GlowHost. Since I will have to change the DNS info anyway when GlowHost upgrades my servers (alpha), I thought I'd just go ahead and set up the custom name servers.

    But within my reseller's account I see at least three different IP addresses.

    I'll put a ticket into tech support.

    Hello Garry,

    Yes, you need to open a support request and our technicians will provide you with 2 IPs that you can use to register your nameservers.
    Have no fear,
