Nameserver Update (External Registrar)

In this article, we assume that your domain is not registered with us and that you wish to use your domain with our services. This will require you to update your nameservers at your current registrar. Updating the nameservers on a domain is an important step when transferring a domain to a new registrar or hosting provider, or when changing your DNS settings for your website or email services. Here is a tutorial on how to update the nameservers on a domain:

 

  1. Log in to your account at your current registrar: In order to update your nameservers, you will need to log in to your account at your current registrar. This is typically done by visiting the registrar's website and entering your username and password.

  2. Find the option to manage your domain: Once you have logged in, you should be able to find an option to manage your domain. This may be labeled "Manage domains" or "Domain management" depending on the registrar.

  3. Locate the nameserver settings: Once in the domain management section, look for an option to update your nameservers. This may be labeled "Nameservers" or "DNS settings."

  4. Update the nameservers: In the nameserver settings, you will be prompted to enter the new nameservers for your domain. To use our nameservers, enter the following information:

    ns1.nanhosting.com
    ns2.nanhosting.com

  5. Save the new nameservers: Once you have entered the new nameservers, save the changes. You will need to confirm your changes before they take effect.

  6. Wait for the changes to propagate: Updating nameservers can take up to 48 hours for the changes to propagate across the internet, so you may need to wait a while before the new nameservers are fully active.

  7. Update the DNS zone: After updating the nameservers, you will need to update your DNS zone to match the new nameservers, this will ensure that your website and email services continue to work. We will take care of this part for you automatically.

Please note that the process of updating nameservers may vary depending on the specific registrar you are using. It is advisable to check with them for their specific instructions. Also, during the nameserver update process, there is a possibility that your website and email services may be interrupted so it's important to plan accordingly.
