    In the Manage Name Servers section, and at the bottom of the page, you will see a link: "If you want to create or modify a name server which is based on {your domain} click here."

    Here you can register a name server based on the domain. All name servers must have an unique IP and must be set-up and running for at least 24 hours before you register them here. Type the prefix for your name server and its IP address and click Create Name Server. We suggest that you do not use the prefix "www" as this may cause a problem with your web server lookups. Use the nameservers exactly as issued to you by, Inc

    The most common error when setting up a newnameserver is: "Unable to create nameserver: Registry error, nameserver creation failed [Attribute value not unique]" This means that the IP address you entered is already taken. You may either find another IP or delete the existing nameserver host record.

    How to fill out the Network Solutions form

    Here is a quick guide to registering your nameservers. You need to fill the form twice (once per nameserver)

    General Information
    Enter your e-mail address
    Select the "NEW" option

    Host Information
    Host NIC Handle:

    (leave blank, since you don't have one yet)
    Host Name:
    Enter the nameserver you are registering (in the format of NS1.YOURNAME.COM)
    IP Address:
    Enter the IP address we assigned to you for that nameserver

    Contact Information
    Enter your NIC handle. If you don't know your NIC handle, you can get this by doing a WHOIS lookup of your main domain name.
    Or, you can create a new contact record by leaving the 'NIC Handle' field blank and filling out the rest of the form.

    Host Form Authorization Information
    Select your preferred Authentication Method, and then press the "Generate Host Form" at the bottom of the page.
    You will then be presented with a completed Host Template. Press the button at the bottom of the page, "Mail this Host Form to me" and a copy will be e-mailed to you.
    YOU MUST now check your e-mail, and send the form back to Network Solutions for processing (just reply to their e-mail to send them back the template)
    Do not forget to send them back the form! Otherwise they will not process your registration.
    Now do the same for your secondary DNS server.
    Once your DNS servers have been registered, you can use them when you register new Domain Names, and you can modify your existing Domain Name records and change the DNS servers to your own.

    "Domain List"

    in the GOTO section

    If you have trouble logging in, the Password Retrieval Form may help you:

    • 3. Use the link named 'click here to add'

    • 6. Enter the second name server with its IP

    The reason for the delay is complex, but has to do with the fact that there are several networks that whose records must be updated in order for your name servers to be recognized. As they are administered by different agencies this takes time. Within 48 hours, you should be able to use your new name servers.

Disk Storage Space -

Disk storage space refers to the amount of server disk storage specifically allocated to your account. This space is used to store your html files, graphics, audio clips, POP3 mail messages, .pdf files, and other files that make up your Web site. Each of our plans includes a specified allotment of disk storage space. You can purchase more disk space through your account's Control Panel.

Bandwidth -

Monthly data transfer, or bandwidth, is the amount of information that is transmitted to/from your Web space. Each time a picture or HTML page is viewed by a visitor, you upload data using FTP, or email is received it adds to your monthly data transfer. The average HIT is approximately 10k. This would mean that a transfer limit of 8.0 Gigabytes would allow 800,000 hits. (That's a lot!) You can monitor your monthly transfer in your Control Panel.

Multiple Websites -

This feature allows you to use your current web hosting account resources for additional websites (i.e. or for sub-domains (i.e. Some examples of additional websites might be:

  • 1. For your church

  • 4. For your kids baseball, soccer, or basketball team
  • 5. For a non-profit organization you are involved with
  • 6. Your new small business ventures
  • 7. Political websites, etc.
