If AAISP are running your DNS, then the Nameservers will be:

primary-dns.co.uk
secondary-dns.co.uk

However, you are free to run your own Authoritative DNS servers for your domain, here is how to set your own Nameservers.

If you have recently transferred in a domain to AAISP you may needing to update the Nameservers to either the AAISP ones or your own ones.

Customers can change the nameservers via the control pages, here is how:
