Warning: If you park your domain any active domain, email service, or any other service tied to that domain will not work anymore.

Create two nameservers at your domain registrar.

ns1.yourdomainname.com and ns2.yourdomainname.com
Then point those two nameservers to one of your sending IPs.

Last point the domain to the new nameservers ns1.yourdomainname.com and ns2.yourdomainname.com

Below we have guides for Moniker, Namesilo, 1and1, Godaddy and Enom

Creating Nameservers at Moniker.com

Step 1.  Login into moniker then in the sidebar under “Domains”  click the “Manage Nameservers/DNS”.

Step 2: In the “Manage Nameservers/DNS” page click on the “Add Nameserver”

Step 3: In the “Add Domain Name Server” page enter the domain as ns1.mydomain.com replacing yourdomain.com with the domain that you want to park and set the IP address to the IP that you want to use on your account  Repeat this process for setting up ns2. We only require two nameservers and they can both have the same IP.

Step 4: Go back to the “Manage Nameservers/DNS” page and click on your domain name and this will take you to modify domain page. Select external nameservers and enter ns1.mydomain.com and ns2.mydomain.com  replace mydomain.com with your domain name

Creating Nameservers at Enom

Creating or registering private nameservers must be done with the domain registry where the domain name resides. To create. For example, ns1.youtdomain.com here, the domain yourdomain.com must be at this REGISTRY.

Click on the LOGIN link.

Enter your enom.com LOG-IN ID and PASSWORD in the boxes provided, then click LOGIN.

You are now logged in to your account.

Click the DOMAIN link at the top left side of the page.

Select ADVANCED TOOLS.

Now click REGISTER A DOMAIN NAME SERVER.

Scroll down.  Enter the new domain server in the NAMESERVER box.

Now enter the new nameservers associated IP ADDRESS in the provided box. The IP address should have been provided to you by your web host.

Click the SUBMIT button to have the new nameserver created.

When finished creating the nameserver, you’ll have to REPEAT the process to register your second name server. Registering private name servers requires you to register TWO SEPARATE NAMESERVERS (i.e.: ns1 and ns2) each with its own unique IP Address.

Remember that after you submit your new nameservers and IP Addresses to the registry, IT CAN TAKE 24-48 HOUR for the new nameservers to propagate after you make these DNS changes.
