Hello,  I read many articles, and still have not reached.
There is (f.e) a vds with isp installed, hosting called alibaba.

In order to the domain be assigned to the account, they are asked to specify dns,
But whois shows hoster's dns ., but I would not really like this ...

Please, explain someone to newbie how to make dns like this - ns1.mydomaine ns2.mydomaine .
if something is not explained well, do not scold, we all sometimes did not know something.


everything you write is some kind of crap.

1. You can always find out who your hoster is by IP address and who they belong to ( or others)
2. you can specify your own dns, for this in the case as described above in the ISP manager panel in the DNS settings, specify ns1.yourdomain and ns2.yourdomain

3. Next, go to the domain name control panel at the registrar and add "Named DNS" indicating ns1.yourdomain IP
ns2.yourdomain IP
4. I draw your attention to the fact that not all registrars allow you to do this if you have only 1 IP.
5. To properly configure DNS, you need to have 2 different IPs from different category C networks

Hi, if you want the DNS of your hosting provider, as well as information about it, not to be shown in the whois domain information, you can buy such a function as Whois information protection from the one who registered your domain. Although no matter what you do, it's impossible to hide the host.


DNS (domain name system) is a system that ensures the operation of the domain names of sites familiar to us. Communication between devices on the Internet is carried out by IP addresses, for instance: "". However, remembering IP addresses is difficult, so human-friendly domain names such as "" were invented.

The computer / server does not store a table of correspondence between domains and their IP addresses. More precisely, it does not store the entire table, but temporarily stores data for frequently used domains. When a website's domain is entered in the browser, the computer automatically recognizes its IP address and sends a request to it. This process is called domain resolving.

Let's figure out what the DNS system consists of and how it works.

How DNS Works
The Domain Name System consists of the following components:

Hierarchical structure of domain names:

Top-level (first-level) domain zones - for instance: "fr", "com", or "org". They include all domain names included in that zone. Any domain zone can include an unlimited number of domains.
Domain names (second-level domain zones) - for instance: "". Because Since the domain name system is hierarchical. Therefore, it is more correct to specify the domain level. However, in practice, a domain zone of any level is simply called a "domain".
Subdomains (third-level domain zones) - for instance: "". There may be domain zones of 4, 5 levels, and so on.
Note that "" and "" are actually different domains. We must not forget to specify A-records for each of them.

DNS server or NS (name server) server - supports (serves) domain zones that are delegated to it. It directly stores resource record data for the zone. For instance, that the server on which the website "" is located has an IP address of "". The DNS server responds to all queries relating to these domain zones. If he receives a request for a domain that is not delegated to him, then he asks other DNS servers for an answer.

DNS records (resource records) are a set of records about the domain zone on the NS server that store the data necessary for the DNS to work. Based on the data in these records, the DNS server responds to queries for the domain. The list of entries and their meaning can be found below.

Root DNS servers (there are currently 13 of them worldwide) store information about which DNS servers serve top-level zones.

DNS servers of top-level domain zones - store information about which NS servers serve a particular domain.

In order to find out the IP address, the domain computer / server accesses the DNS server, which is specified in its network settings. Usually, that is the ISP's DNS server. The DNS server checks if the domain is delegated to it or not. If yes, then immediately responds to the request. If not, it requests information about the DNS server serving that domain from the root server, and then from the server of the top-level domain zones. After that, it directly makes a request to the NS server serving that domain and broadcasts the response to your computer / server.
