Nameservers

Adding Name servers is pretty simple and is a core skill.

Log into your Namecheap or Godaddy account. We will do this for namecheap first.

Here is the video.

All the registrants have good tutorials on how to manage your account.

How It Works.

Once you have registered your domain and set up your hosting you will have 2 nameservers.

They look like this.

NameServer1: ms1.hosting.com
NameServer2: ms2.hosting.com

Obviously depending on the hosting company the name will differ however the process is the same.

Log into Namechaeap and click on the domain you need to add the nameservers to.

Then click on the Nameservers “1” link in the menu on the left and add your nameservers as
shown in no “2

nameserver

Now it will take a little while for it to take. Anything from a few minutes to 24 hours.

Once it propagates over the net you will see your site you registered live and until
then it will still show the registration at Namecheap.

The process is the same basically for hostgator.

Set up Your Domain Name Servers Go Daddy

To set up your domain name servers:

  1. Log in to your Account Manager.
  2. In the My Products section, click Domains.
  3. Use the checkbox(es) to select the domain name(s) you want to modify.
  4. Click Nameservers.
  5. Select Custom nameservers.
  6. In the Nameserver fields, enter the nameservers. You must enter at least two for
    your hosting account.
  7. Click OK.

Allow 4-8 hours for .COM and .NET domains and 24-48 hours for all other domain extensions
DNS changes to take effect.

Once this stage is done we only return here to either register a new domain, renew an account
or change the nameservers.
