How do I create my own name servers for Windows Server 2003?


Please note This article is for Windows Server 2003 not 2008

You can create your own name servers for a Windows dedicated server by creating sub domains and then applying IP addresses to the sub domains, then applying the domain to the sub domains. You also need to configure this on your Windows server. To create your own name servers for a Windows server, please follow these instructions: Make sure you have two IP addresses. If you do have two IP addresses, please follow these instructions. Can I order additional IP Addresses? You need to create two sub domains: 1. Log in to the 1&1 Control Panel using your Customer ID OR domain name and your password at: http://admin.1and1.com If you have only one package, you will land on the Administration page. If you have more than one package, select the Packages tab at the top. Select the package in question to reach its Administration page.

2. Select Domains from the Basic Settings section.

3. Select the domain. Click the arrow next to New and select Create a Subdomain.

4. Insert the name for your sub domain. (ex: ns1.domain.com or ns2.domain.com) Click OK

Once the sub domains have been created, you want to change the A record for the two sub domains to your two IP addresses. 1.
