CHANGE NAME SERVERS
How to change the DNS for
your domain to point to your hosting company's servers Free.
DNS TRANSFER IS NOT A
REGISTRAR TRANSFER. IT'S TO
modify the name server
setting associated with that domain name.
Setting up the Name Servers for your hosted website
When you register your
domain, default DNS settings are used. Your web hosting
provider can give you their primary and secondary DNS
information and you can change the default settings to
those of your web host. The DNS information usually
looks something like this:
Primary Hostname- ns1.examplehostname.com
Primary IP- 188.8.131.52
Secondary Hostname- ns2.examplehostname.com
Secondary IP- 184.108.40.206
To change DNS information
on to our website at www.NextRegister.com, and click
Beside the domain
whose DNS you want to change, click Edit DNS.
Replace the existing
information with the information provided by your
web hosting company (You only need to use the name
servers, not the IP addresses.)
Your new DNS information is automatically entered,
if it is verified to be valid.
Please allow 24 - 48 hours
for your change to propagate throughout the Internet.
RECOMMENDATION: after you finish changing your DNS
make sure your domain is locked to
secure your domain at the registry. It's an extra layer of security. Also
consider changing your password every time you give it out.
We became aware that
some hosting companies are requesting that our customers transfer their
domain name to them. Due to the lack of understanding about the term
"transfer", they make it appear that in order to use their hosting
service, you must transfer your domain name to them not the DNS only.
This can be a costly mistake to you now and in the future, due to the
exorbitant cost you will be charged for domain yearly renewal, and your
future business. By having your domain name with a company that only
registers domain names, you will have the flexibility to change hosting
companies anytime you wish without losing your domain name or your
hosting service. In order to set up hosting for a website, you only
need to modify the name server setting associated with that domain
name. You can do that in minutes at
www.NextRegister.com without having to
transfer your domain name and with no extra charge.
