Automatic Nameserver Configuration

EBN supports automatic nameserver configuration for popular registrars. The setup takes a few minutes for each registrar but once it’s done, everything is done automatically within EBN.
Keep in mind the domain has to be registered and in your account. We do not register the domain for you.
Make sure that you first set up your registrar credentials and then add the blogs to your EBN account. Otherwise, the automatic configuration will fail.
To set up your registrar credentials, click on your username in the top right corner and select Manage Registrar Credentials. Some registrars have IP restrictions, so you'll need to contact support for the IPs to whitelist.

Click the green Add button. Select your registrar and enter the credentials.

Below are the instructions for each registrar.

GoDaddy instructions

Go to where you will see the “Create New API Key” button. See image 1.1 below.

After you click the “Create New API Key” button new window will appear where you should enter the Name(Optional) and select “Production“ under Environment (see image 1.2).

After we click “Next” we will see the window which contains the production API Key and API Secret (see image 1.3).

So copy and paste the Key and Secret to the EBN app (User > Manage Registrar Credentials > Add). Be careful not to mix them because else EBN won’t be able to connect to the GoDaddy system and you will see a “Registrar credentials are not valid” error.
When you complete generating the API Key you should see a screen that is similar to the one in image 1.4.
