    Easy, straight forward guide.

    However, Godaddy have, once again, changed their Customer back-end, and with this new version, they’ve removed the ability to “glue” an IP to a hostname.

    Spoke with tech, and he said they’ve discontinued their ‘vanity’ service, which is the custom hostname option. Why would they do that, it makes no sense. Now what do I do???

    Really need to add IP’s to 2 hostname records but can’t…

    It is still working when I tried delegation with MS Azure DNS Zone.
    This is what I did:

    – Create Azure DNS zone –, you will get 4x Azure DNS name servers like,, etc.
    – Create 4x NS record “subdomain” (without and pointing to the 4 Azure DNS nameservers –,, etc.
    – Create 4x A record – the glue record – “subdomain” (without and pointing to the 4 IP addresses of the Azure DNS nameservers.
    – Then create your DNS records like www or any in the Azure DNS zone.

    Wait sometime, in my case 10-15 minutes, then you can use the DNS name www[.]subdomain[.]
    Please try.
