Register Own Nameservers

Hi there

I have multiple domains added to HestiaCp users and now I’d prefer to set own nameserver and DNS Cluster. Luckily NameCheap allows me to register private nameservers, so I did it, but now I cannot access the websites. I set the A record for ns1 and ns2 with their corresponding IP in DNS zone of the domains in HestiaCp. I set the DNS template to Child-ns, but still no signs to access the website normally. Is there something missing? Do I need to wait for sometime in order to let the records propagate over the network?

do you use cloudflare too ?
check dns Prop using any online dns checker

No, I use the namecheap’s CDN. But I’ll check if it works

When I check the domain to see the DNS propgation, I see the own nameservers get recognized by a very few countries. Does that mean I need to wait for some time? If so how much time does the propgation needs to fully finish?

up to 48 hrs.

You can reduce the TTL before you propagate the changes so that the propagation takes only 5 minutes
