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-
Secondary Hostname- ns2.examplehostname.com
Secondary IP-

To change DNS information 

  1. Log on to our website at www.NextRegister.com, and click on "Domain Manager".

  2. Beside the domain whose DNS you want to change, click Edit DNS.

  3. 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.)

  4. Click Save. 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.
