Add my custom host names

Register your own host names to create custom nameservers for your domains registered with GoDaddy. The maximum number of host names you can add is determined by the TLD registry.

  1. Sign in to your GoDaddy Domain Control Center. (Need help logging in? Find your username or password.)
  2. Select your domain to access the Domain Settings page.
    select domain
  3. Select Manage DNS to access your zone file.
  4. Select Host Names from the more menu icon More menu.
    select secondary dns
  5. Select ADD.
  6. Enter the Host name and IP Address in the appropriate fields. Don't include your domain in the Host name field – it's already added for you.
  7. Select Save when finished.

Your new host names will be ready to use within 90 minutes, in most cases. We'll send you an email when they're ready, then you can change your nameservers to use your new host names.
