What is a nameserver?

A nameserver is essentially how your domain communicates and links up with your hosting provider. Your hosting provider will typically provide you with two or more nameserver records specific to the server your website is currently being hosted on.

For example, if Directnic is currently your hosting provider, your domain would be set to the following nameservers:


Changing your Nameservers:

In order to set your domain name registered at Directnic to a specific set of nameservers, you will need to be logged into your Directnic account.

From the Dashboard page within your Directnic account, hover over the 'My Services'  tab on the account toolbar and select 'Domains' in the pull down menu,

From the list of domains in the 'Domain Manager', click on the domain you wish to update the nameservers for.

You will be directed to the domain settings page, which contains a variety of information specific to your domain, including its current name servers.

Below the current nameservers is a link marked 'Edit' which will enable a pop-up where you will be able to update the current nameservers as desired.

Note: You may need to contact your hosting provider directly for the most current nameservers available to your hosting service.
