DNS with Virtual Nameservers

If you would like to get virtual nameservers (e.g., ns.yourdomain.com and ns2.yourdomain.com, where yourdomain.com is any valid domain name that you own) with two unique ip addresses, we can set up and host these for $10.00 per month. You would need to be the registrant of yourdomain.com domain, and would need to register the 2 nameservers along with the IP addresses that we provide you for the nameservers.

If yourdomain.com was registered through GlobalFront, then we will register the nameservers for you without any additional cost. If you registered yourdomain.com through another registrar, then you would need to contact your registrar to find out how you can register nameservers for the domain and whether your registrar charge any fee for that.

Once the nameservers are registered, please allow at least 48-72 hours for propagation of the nameserver names across the internet before you plan to use them as nameservers for any other domain. After your virtual nameservers become functional, you would be able to use those nameservers for modifying yourdomain.com. Additionally, you will be able to use those nameservers for registering or modifying other domains for which you buy (a) GlobalFront's hosting service accounts, or (b) GlobalFront's domain forwarding accounts. For each additional domain, you would need to pay the regular hosting or forwarding service fees.

How do I order virtual nameservers?

Please email to support@globalfront.com and provide your domain name that you would like to use as the nameserver domain. Then please visit our online payment form at http://www.globalfront.com/jumpto/payment.htm and make a payment for $10.00 as the setup and first month nameserver fee. Once we receive your payment, we will configure ns.yourdomain.com and ns2.yourdomain.com with 2 unique IP addresses in our servers, and email you within 4 to 12 hours. You will then need to register the nameservers and the IP addresses with the registrar of yourdomain.com. Please note that you must be the owner or registrant of yourdomain.com before you order ns.yourdomain.com and ns2.yourdomain.com in our site.

Note: On this page, the term "yourdomain.com" refers to your domain name, which could have any valid TLD extension, including any country-code TLD extension. However, if you are planning to use the nameservers for additional domains, for compatibility with most registrars' registration systems, we strongly recommend that the nameserver domain should be one with a .com or a .net TLD extension.

If you still have questions, then please contact us at support@globalfront.com.
