How do I register a DNS (Domain Name Server) on the Internet?

In the same way that a domain name must be registered with a central Registry to be recognized on the Internet, Domain Name Servers (DNS) must also be registered with a central Registry.  Nic AG register ONLY .AG and .LC nameservers. To register a nameserver, please contact the Registry for the domain name of the server that you wish to register. For example, to register a .com, .net, .org nameserver, contact Network Solutions. To register a ccTLD nameserver, contact the ccTLD registry.

Note that a nameserver can only be registered after its parent domain name is registered, and after it is already set up and active on the Internet (i.e. available via its IP address).

For example, you have a domain name called mydomain.ag, and you wish to have a nameserver (or HOST) called ns1.mydomain.ag registered within the .AG Registry. You would set up the nameserver with a valid Internet available IP address, and make sure that it is reachable by IP address on the Internet via a browser.

Note:  You must actually have a DNS in operation at a dedicated and unique IP Address in order for the DNS server registration to be completed.
