GoDaddy Nameserver not registered

When trying to setup new name servers in GoDaddy’s domain manager, I received an error message “Nameserver not registered”.

For GoDaddy to recognize new name  servers they may have to be registered via the following steps:

  1. Access the GoDaddy Domain Manager
  2. Click on the domain you’d like to add the name servers for
  3. In the lower left hand corner, look for the ‘Host Summary’ section
  4. Add the new host e.g. ns1 and set it to point to the appropriate IP address.
