Adding Name Servers to the ZA Domains Reseller Control Panel

This guide will walk you through the steps required to add your name servers to the ZA Domains Reseller Control Panel.

 

  1. Log in to the ZA Domains Reseller Control Panel using your Domain Reseller user name and password.
  2. Expand Domains on the menu and click on Manage Name Servers 
  3. Click the Add New Name Server button 
  4. On the Add New Name Server modal complete the applicable form fields as per examples and explanation below 
    • Name Server : Provide the fully qualified domain name for your primary name server - (I.E  If you are using Hetzner as your hosting provider then your default primary name server would be NS1.HOST-H.NET, or if you are using Server Admins as your hosting provider then your default primary name server would be ns1.zadns.co.za)
    • ​​IPv4 (Optional) : As suggested, this field is optional and is only required if you are registering a new name server that you will host, and the fully qualified domain name falls within the .ZA second level domain name space - ie a CO.ZA Domain name. Do not enter the IPv4 value for your hosting providers name servers as they would have already registered the name servers for their domain name.
    • IPv6 (Optional) : As suggested, this field is optional and is only required if you are registering a new name server that you will host, and the fully qualified domain name falls within the .ZA second level domain name space - ie a CO.ZA Domain name. Do not enter the IPv6 value for your hosting providers name servers as they would have already registered the name servers for their domain name.
  5. Click the Save changes button to add your primary name server to the ZA Domains Domain Reseller Control Panel.
Repeat the steps above for each of the name servers which you need to add. Typically all hosting providers provide 2 - 5 name servers for domains which are configured to use their name servers, and you will need to add each of those to the Name Server within the Domain Reseller Control Panel.
