Register Private DNS with City of Domains or Godaddy

Cityofdomains: http://www.cityofdomains.com/
Godaddy: http://www.godaddy.com/

Benefits: you will get own name servers instead of WestNIC's ns1.westnic.net and ns2.westnic.net; whois search will show your name servers, not ours.

Let's begin!

1. Get two free dedicated IPs from WestNIC. You need to state in the support ticket: https://support.westnic.net/ that you need two free IP's for private name servers. Example of valid ticket:

"Hello, I need two free dedicated IPs for my private dns: ns1.mydomainname.com and ns2.mydomainname.com". As soon as you get free IPs, proceed with other steps below.

Note: Domain hosts are not required unless you intend to set up your own DNS server. We recommend that you DO NOT use this tool unless you have a thorough understanding of this process. Please DO NOT enter "www" as your host name. This is not a redirection service--it will not direct your domain to an IP address.
To Register Your Own Name Servers Using the NEW Domain Control Center

Allow 4-8 hours for .COM and .NET domains and about 24-48 hours for all other domain extensions for the name servers to be registered.
