Enable Secondary DNS with GoDaddy nameservers as masters
Before you make our nameservers the primary (master) set in your Premium DNS account, you'll need to contact support for your system and your DNS server software to configure your own nameservers as the secondary (slave) set. See What is Secondary DNS? for more information.
You must set your DNS slave nameservers to initiate AXFR requests from both of our master zone transfer servers (not to be confused with secondary servers). Use the following transfer server information:
- xfr03.domaincontrol.com (126.96.36.199)
- xfr04.domaincontrol.com (188.8.131.52)
Note: These servers do not respond to general DNS queries, only to AXFR-type queries.

- TTL - Select how long the server should cache the information.

For zones registered with us, do the following:
- Follow the directions above for entering nameservers. Make certain that you're entering in the information for your slave nameservers. Do not replace or delete our nameservers.
Setting your nameservers to ONLY GoDaddy nameservers will result in the removal of your DNS zone from the GoDaddy system.
