I am in a process of moving my site from a regular hosting to a dedicated server. It looks like I am missing something very basic in DNS and name servers settings. I have this situation:
1. Domain name is registered with one company (domain registrar A)
2. The site is currently hosted with second company (hosting company B)
3. The Dedicated server is with third company (hosting company C). On the dedicated server I have Windows installed, and a control panel (Plesk). So far so good. My site was defined in Plesk.
My problem is with the name servers. Company B gave me name servers for the domain that I host - something like ns1.hostingb.com ns2.hostingb.com. In the CompanyA domain control panel I entered these two name servers, and the site migrated to company B hosting plan after dns propagation of several hours.
Company C did not give me name servers by name, (i.e. ns1.companyc.com), but only IP addresses (say 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11)
Domain control panel of company A does not allow IP addresses as name servers. Here I am stuck.
How can I create my own name servers, or have an alias like ns.something.com for 18.104.22.168 IP address? It probably is one small step, but I already tried several options and feel pretty stuck with it.
Thanks in advance.
