How to Change your Domain Name Servers

Changing your Domain Name Servers

When you register a new domain name, often one of the first things you want to do is to connect it to your web hosting service. Usually your web host will provide name servers.

Until you change the name servers on your domain name, your domain will be parked and you will be able to use any of the parking features which come with every domain name.

Locating the Nameserver tab for your domain
