Changing nameservers error: "At least one IP address is required"

I have an A Record pointing to my IP.

I try to change my nameservers to what I've got setup on my server and I immediately get an email saying:

 

     This is the error we received: IPAddresses: At least one IP address is required

 

I tried adding A records ns1 and ns2 with IP addresses pointing to the nameservers beforehand but that didn't help matters.

 

I've never used GoDaddy before but I've done similar DNS setups in the past with Moniker.

In Moniker I just have a tab named 'Own Namerservers (Glue Records)' whereby each nameserver (ns1-4.website.com) has a corresponding IP value and it works.

 

In Godaddy it doesn't even ask for an IP value when I enter the name servers and thenit tells me I'm missing an IP.

 

What's going on?

If you want to do ns1.yourdomain.com and ns2.yourdomain.com

 

You need to first set up "Hosts" within the DNS management screen (towards the bottom) this will then register those as valid name server which you should be able to change them to.

 

Keep in mind certain domain extensions have restrictions like that the name servers have to be on different IP blocks
