  2. If you’re using nameservers that we have provided to you, or nameservers that are already registered, enter them in here

  1. Now head back to the domains page and you can check the status of your new domain to make sure it’s live (If it doesn’t say live, just try refreshing it)


Showing the Current domains status section in Zpanel


Note: If you’re going to use the nameservers that ZPanel generates, they’ll have to be registered with your domain registrar. We’d be happy to help if you don’t know how to do it. Just open a ticket (we’ll need your zadmin password, as well as login credentials to your domain registrar). 


Note: For best results please reboot the server after completing the steps above.
