How to Register Private Nameservers With GoDaddy

It this tutorial we will show you the steps on how to easily register private nameservers for a domain name registered with GoDaddy.

What are Private Nameservers?

Private nameservers allow you to setup nameservers for your own domain of choice. Let’s say you are operating a web hosting business and don’t want people to Google our nameservers and find out you really resell hosting thru us. Using private nameservers, you can avoid just this problem.

Having your own nameservers also gives you a more professional appearance than just plain nameservers, for example. ns1.bobshostingshack.com is pretty professional compared to our default nameservers. 😏
