How to change namservers

Introduction

Changing nameservers for your domain is a common task when you want to point your domain to a different hosting provider, web server, or DNS service. This guide will walk you through the process of changing nameservers for your domain registered with Hostingly. Please note that domain changes may take some time to propagate globally, typically up to 24 hours.

Steps to Change Nameservers

  • Log into Hostingly Account: Log in to your Hostingly account using your registered email address and password.
  • Access Domain Management: Click on “My Domains” to manage your domain names.
  • Select the Domain: Find the domain name you want to manage and click on it.
  • Navigate to Nameservers: In the domain management section, click on the “Nameservers” tab.
  • Enter New Nameservers: Replace the existing nameservers with the new ones provided by your hosting provider, web server, or DNS service.
  • Save Changes: Click the “Change Nameservers” button or equivalent to confirm your changes.
  • Propagation Time: Keep in mind that DNS changes, including nameserver updates, may take up to 24 hours to fully propagate globally. During this period, your domain may resolve to the old or new hosting environment depending on DNS cache.

Additional Information

  • Ensure you have accurate information about the new nameservers from your hosting provider or DNS service.
  • Verify that your domain is registered with Hostingly before changing nameservers. If not, access your domain registrar’s account to make changes.
  • Saving your nameserver changes is crucial for them to take effect.
  • Be patient during the DNS propagation period, as it may vary for different users and locations.

 

By following these steps, you can successfully change nameservers for your domain registered with Hostingly and point your domain to the desired hosting or DNS service.
