    First, you need to log into both your Contabo and Namecheap accounts.

    Inside Contabo, you need to scroll down to DNS Zone Management.


    Add the domain you purchased from Namecheap and also select the IP address from the dropdown:

    Hit Create Zone and you will be redirected to a page that looks like this:

    In most cases, the primary DNS records you need are automatically created for you. Now, you will need to extract the Contabo Nameservers, which usually are:

    • ns1.contabo.net
    • ns2.contabo.net
    • ns3.contabo.net

    Configure Custom Nameservers in Namecheap

    Now, go to your Namecheap account and find your domain. Click on Manage

    You will be taken to a different page. From here, you need to scroll down and find the Nameserver section

    Click the dropdown and select Custom Nameservers. Then put the nameservers you got from Contabo
