Changing Name Servers of a Domain Name
Posted by Ryan D, Last modified by Jitin S on 05 January 2016 07:38:17 PM

In order to host a website on your domain name, you will need to obtain the Name Servers from the Web Hosting company with whom you wish to host your website and point your domain name to these Name Servers.

To Modify Name Servers of your Domain Name

  1. Contact your Web Hosting Company and find out from them the Name Servers you need to use.

    If you have purchased Web Hosting for your domain name through us, then you need to set the Name Servers as specified by us.

  2. Login to your Control Panel.

  3. Search for the domain name and proceed to the Order Information view.

  4. Click the Name Servers link.

  5. Enter upto 13 Name Servers and click Update Name Servers.

Note

Upon modifying your domain name's Name Servers, your website would begin appearing in a web browser, after about 24 to 48 hours (provided your Web Hosting package is properly setup and you have uploaded the content of your website). This is a standard time-frame required for a process called as DNS Propagation to complete Worldwide. This process is not controlled by any one ISP/company and therefore it can not be hastened.
