How to Change DNS Nameservers for a Domain Name
You can set the name servers (DNS) on your domain to reflect Our Servers, or Custom third-party name servers. If you want to use our name servers and just want to modify your host records, please see the article Forward, Redirect or Point Your Domain/Sub-domain (Change Host Records).
To modify the DNS on your domain, please do the following:
- Log into your account.
- Under the menu option Domains, click My Domains.
- Click on the domain name you wish to work with.
- Click on DNS Server Settings or select DNS Server Settings from the Manage Domain drop-down list.
Choose Our Servers to use the name servers supplied by us, or Custom to enter your own name servers addresses. If Custom is chosen, you may enter up to 5 name servers (e.g., ns1.example.com).
NOTE: no IP address should be entered, unless you're registering custom name servers for certain TLDs (see How to Register or Update Nameservers for .EU Domains). the Maximum number of characters in a custom DNS is 60
- Click Save.
Please allow up to 48 hours for the changes to propagate throughout the Internet.
