How can I use the Moniker nameservers as secondary nameservers?

Own Nameserver

If you use your own nameservers (managed by yourself), you can use them as the primary nameservers in combination with the Moniker nameservers as the secondary nameservers for the DNS of your domain(s).

The corresponding settings can be made in your Moniker customer account.

Enter your own nameservers as external nameservers

Please enter your primary nameservers as external nameservers for your domain.

Please login into your customer account and click Domains My Domains and click on the domain name you want to configure.

Master Nameserver IP Address

Please make sure that the selected nameservers are registered on the primary nameserver in the DNS zonefile of the domain.

3 - Please make sure that the zone transfer is allowed for the following IP addresses on your master nameserver:

IPv4:

167.114.103.127

IPv6 (optional):

Hidden Master

To use your own nameserver as a hidden master, do not enter name of the nameserver in the list of external nameservers.

It is sufficient if the secondary nameservers are entered as external nameservers.

The zone transfer is ensured by entering the IP address(es) of the master nameserver in the section "Use secondary name servers".

Please make sure that the selected nameservers are registered on the primary nameserver in the DNS zonefile of the domain.

Please make sure that the zone transfer is allowed for the following IP addresses on your master nameserver:

IPv4:

37.187.251.136
37.187.168.234

IPv6 (optional):

2001:41d0:c:388:37:187:251:136
2001:41d0:d:7ea:37:187:168:234

The list of secondary nameservers is just a suggestion.
Of course you can also use our white label name servers:

mdns1.nsdns.info
mdns2.nsdns.info
mdns3.nsdns.info

In this case, the desired nameservers must be entered manually as "external nameservers".
Please make sure that the selected nameservers are registered on the primary nameserver in the DNS zonefile of the domain.
