DNS Name Server Redirect Please Help

i am trying to get this done.

if you go to > it redirects to page > … imcc&e=com name servers for are: NS1.NAMEBRIGHTDNS.COM NS2.NAMEBRIGHTDNS.COM

if you simply change the name server of any domain to NS1.NAMEBRIGHTDNS.COM and NS2.NAMEBRIGHTDNS.COM that domain will redirect to (you dont need to create any domain forwarding, alias, A record or cname for that domain)

i have created the custom name servers for my domain name, using using digitaloceans ips but cant get this to work.

my client has thousands of domains so its not possible to do the forwarding for each domain

please kindly help me get this done.

thank you

webm3dia - I work for NameBright and we provide the nameserver software that does what you are talking about above. If your client was using us as a registrar, we have tools to make this automated and really simple. (free to use for all customers.) Essentially you set all domain names to be controlled at a “category” level. Any domains that move into that category automatically inherit the category level settings. In this case the domains would inherit our nameservers that would then point the DNS records to DigitalOcean’s IP.

You will not be able to accomplish this using our nameservers since the nameserver itself is not aware of the name being used to request it so a call. This type of configuration would require it’s own DNS server set up either with a wildcard domain “*” zone or by using another method to return a particular IP address for everything.

Setting up BIND on a droplet and creating a zone called * which directs to the IP address may do the trick.
