Setting up with Nameservers is one of two ways in which you can register your web domain for protection with Polaris' WAAP. This is the advanced method and most users will register via the CNAME method.
To register your web domain with the Nameserver option, the setup wizard will guide you through these steps following registration.
Step 1: Verifying DNS records
Polaris automatically adds your DNS records based on our analysis of your website. Please verify them and if there are any missing, please enter them manually according to this article.
If you would like to import or export your DNS records, this can also be done via the Import and Export buttons. Do note that the file format for both import and export is .TXT. Also note that these records can also be edited later.
Once you are done, click the Next button.
Step 2: Verifying Nameservers
In this step, you will be transferring your nameservers from your domain registrars to Polaris. Some examples of domain registrars include GoDaddy, Wix.com and Namecheap, companies that host your website on the internet.
As per the instructions on the setup wizard, you will first have to login to your registrar website and remove the mentioned nameservers. If you have difficulties, please refer to the registrar's FAQ site. Once that is done, add the ones shown on screen, copying and pasting the information will do.
Save the changes made and the rest of the process will be automated. When the changes have been completed and the nameservers have been transferred to Polaris, you will receive a confirmation email. You can also use the re-check now on the wizard to check if the transfer has been done successfully.
When you are done with this step (you do not need to wait for the confirmation email) please click the Next button.
