Changing Name Servers


Changing Name Servers (or DNS – Domain Name Servers) may sound complicated at first but let me reassure you it really is not. It’s a very simple procedure that you may, or may not, have to do – depending on where you bought your domain name and hosting account. DNS is merely a link between the two – one has to know where the other is for your website to be seen online. And it only takes minutes to do!

Ok if you’re ready – let’s begin!

  • A domain name is bought from a company called a Registrar.
  • A Hosting account is bought from a hosting company.
  • You must have both – and can buy both from the same company or from different companies, depending on your preference which is usually down to cost.
  • Either way is perfectly ok!

This is what happens when someone types in your domain name

  • The Registrar needs to know where to locate your website – where to send your visitor to.
  • Therefore they need to know where the Hosting company is located.
  • If you have bought both from the same company – then you don’t need to change your Name Servers because your Registrar already knows where your hosting is.
  • If, however, you have bought them from different companies – then you do have to change your Name Servers.
  • This links one to the other. If you don’t make the link all you will see is an error message.
  • But please don’t worry – it really is very easy to do.

Now to change the Name Servers

  • Go to your Registrar, where you bought your domain name, e.g. GoDaddy.
  • Log into your account.
  • Go to Domain Manager (Note: this may vary depending on which registrar you signed up with – but it will say something similar like Domains or Manage My Domain).
  • The next screen shows all the domain names you have bought – or you may just have one at the moment.
  • Now find the domain name that you want to change the Name Servers on and click on it.
  • Do that now!
  • Don’t worry too much about the information that shows up on this page – what we’re interested in here are the icons along the top – the one that says Nameservers.
  • Click on Nameservers.
  • You are now on the Set Nameservers page. Well done!
  • Note Nameservers 1 and 2 are already filled in. Delete both now!
  • All you have to do now is copy and paste in the Nameservers given to you by your Hosting company.
  • And now you’re thinking – was I given Nameservers by my Hosting company!

You were indeed! But please don’t feel overwhelmed – we’re actually almost done!Let’s continue

  • Now – you need to locate the email that your Hosting company sent when you signed up. This email is very important – keep it safe! Find that email now!
  • In this email you will see a heading something like Nameservers or Your Name Servers.
  • You will see 2 nameservers listed in this email.
  • Now copy and paste each nameserver into the Nameserver boxes 1 and 2 (copy them exactly as they are, ensuring you don’t leave any of it out). Excellent!
  • Now click on the OK button. It will probably take a few minutes for the changes to take place. Be patient!
  • You have now told your Registrar where your Hosting company is so they know where to find your website.
  • Just a quick reminder – you only need to change Nameservers when you buy your domain name from one company and you buy your hosting account from another.
  • If you’ve bought both from the same company you don’t need to do anything.

And Viola! You’re all done!

Hi, my name is Miriam Roche.

Up until recently I knew nothing about name servers, website building or creating eBooks.

But thanks to the very best Mentor online today all that has changed for good.

If you’ve ever wished someone would take you by the hand and teach you in plain English – then you’ve found them! It really really isn’t difficult at all.

Allow me to share with you today how you too can learn all this cool stuff!
