When I set my nameservers they swap positions are listed the wrong way round?

For example, if you set your name servers to:

  • dns.tmhnetwork.com
  • dns2.tmhnetwork.com


You save theses changes and then the page loads and you see they have swapped round to become:

  • dns2.tmhnetwork.com (Secondary)
  • dns.tmhnetwork.com (Primary)

This does not matter, the name servers you have entered should all be valid, and so it does not matter what order they are prioritised in or listed in. If your nameservers are listed backwards or in reverse, it will not make a difference as to whether your website is working or not working.
