Create and Add Child/ Private Name Servers in Godaddy

If you bought domains from GoDaddy and hosting somewhere else, then you will be requested to set the private nameserver details in your DNS Setting. Getting into the GoDaddy Support chat and to get connected with the agent to ask them about this will take more time than the whole process.

Are you struggling a lot to set the Private/Child Nameserver in GoDaddy? Then you are at the right place. In this article, I have explained to you How to register your Private NameServer and configure it in GoDaddy.
