1. Login to PowerPanel
First you need to login to PowerPanel. If you don't have an account you can create an account (use the menu in the header and choose register). If you need help to login to PowerPanel, please read here how to logon.
2. Go to Plugin marketplace
To enable this plugin you have to follow the next few steps. First you will have to install the plugin. Go to the Settings -> Plugins and search for PowerPanel DNS. You will only have to switch the plugin on to install it.
After you have turned on the plugin you have to create the nameserver. The domainname that you want to use as nameserver will have to be managed in PowerPanel. To create the nameserver go to System -> Settings -> Domain settings and scroll to Default nameserver settings. Click on the “add name server set” button in the bottom. The next screen will pop up:
You can name the nameservers yourself to the hostnames you want to use, for this example we are using:
You will have to setup the name server set and the IP addresses to the following (make sure you also have setup the DNS zone's corresponding to this IP Addresses):
If you want to use our default name server setL: ns1.powerpanel.io, ns2.powerpanel.io, ns3.powerpanel.nl you won’t have to fill in the IP addresses, so you can uncheck “Add IP address”.
After you have created your nameserver set you will have to fill in the SOA settings.
Fill in your information and enable “Activate Name Server Set”.
Below this you also have the option to enable this for your resellers, so your resellers can enable their own nameserver set. To enable this, switch on “Allow Name Server Registration”
If you have done all these things you will have to create a few DNS records for the domain you have set as your nameserver. A record with the IP address and name for our nameservers. At your registrar you have to create a glue record that points to our ip addresses
