How do I assign custom name servers to my domain?

Name servers are the servers where the content and configuration records for your domain are stored. Assigning custom name servers means you do not want to use Uniregistry's name servers. Generally, you would do this when you want to point your domain to your hosting account for your website and/or when you’ve set up your own name servers.  Your hosting company for your website will tell you which name servers to use. 


Steps to assign custom name server records


1.  Log in to your account at using the ‘Log In/Sign Up’ button in the upper-right corner of the homepage.





2.  Click ‘Manage’ from the menu at the top of the page.


Manage_Select from Menu-New



3.  Click on the domain that you would like to change the name servers for.

  • Use the checkbox and drop-down menu in the header bar to select all the domains in the page or in your entire account.
  • Enter criteria such as extensions into the filters field to narrow the list displayed.
  • Enter specific domains in the ‘Search domains’ field in the upper-right corner to display only the domains you want.




4.  Click the ‘NS/DNS Records’ tab.

5.  The name server drop-down box allows you to select from a few options including Uniregistry name servers, your account default name servers, or setting custom name servers.  Click the option you would like to use.


  • Select 'Uniregistry DNS' to use Uniregistry's name servers and DNS.

5b.  If you select ‘Set new name servers’ you will be prompted to enter each name server into the text field and click ‘Add’

  • What are scrub name servers?

  • Hello, scrub name servers means to remove them entirely so the domain has no name servers. This is the quickest way to take your site offline. Hope this helps!

  • I have a basic question for the following situation: I have two domains at my webhoster and one special domain at uniregistry. I would like to set up the Uniregistry domain as the main domain and the other two domains as 301 forwarding. Is changing the name server the best way in this case? If so, how do I proceed after changing the name server? Thanks
