Having your own name server also gives you identity and a sense of uniqueness , also it’s a must have for those into small hosting business like sprout server a local hosting provider also part of the Krafty sprouts family.

This tutorial was setup using namecheap, if you use other registrar like godaddy please search for similar step.

Remember you need a default domain to use for the name servers, this might also be your hosting business domain or something else.
