A vanity nameserver is a name server that is branded to a website of your choice, instead of our public name servers. This can make your site appear more professional, by masking the fact you’re using our name servers.
Setting up vanity name servers on shared hosting, would be much different than running your own custom name servers on either a VPS or dedicated server. As these run completely separate from our public name servers.
With vanity name servers you are just hiding or masking the hostname of our public name servers, but the IP addresses and the physical servers handling your website’s DNS requests would still be our public name servers.
Create Vanity nameserver with digital ocean and namecheap
- create droplet in digitalocean with hostname your domain
For nameserver it can be ns1.yourdomain.com or a.ns.yourdomain.com. I use the ns1 one.
Dns record will be look like:
The blue censored content is your droplet IP
The red censored content is your domain
