  2. Select Server Configuration and then click Basic WebHost Manager Setup.
  3. At the bottom of the All tab, in the Nameservers section, enter the name for Nameserver 1 as ns1.yourDomainName. For example, if your domain is coolexample.com, enter ns1.coolexample.com.
    enter nameserver 1
  4. Click Configure Address Records.
  5. In Enter an IPv4 address to create an A record, type the server IP address.
  6. Click Configure Address Records, and after the confirming message appears, click Close.
  7. Repeat the previous two steps for Nameserver 2.
  8. Click Save Changes.
  9. Register the new nameservers as described in Change nameservers for my domains.
