Information about Changing Domain Name Servers
Your domain's name servers (DNS) must be changed in order for people
to view your site. This is usually done through your domain name
control panel. Using the Username ID and Password you were given
when your domain name was registered, go to your control panel and
click on Modify Domain Name Servers (Modify DNS) or Change Domain
Name Servers. Two name servers are employed; a primary and secondary.
For your website to be viewable by it's domain name, the name servers
it's delegated to at the registery must be changed to the following:
What is a Domain Name Server?
|When changing the name server settings, some registrar's require both Host Name & IP Address, while others require only the Host Name.
A domain name server (DNS) is a computer that contains a list of
domain names and the associated IP addresses. When a domain name
is typed in a web browser, the domain name server associates that
with the IP address and the correct website opens in the web browser.
Allow 2-12 hours before sites are viewable by domain name, after name server updates have been completed. This is the time required for the information to be passed onto all the different ISP's around the world.
If you would prefer Aotea Web Hosting to make the changes for you,
please advise us. This is a free service we provide. We require
your domain registery username and password assigned to you when
you registered your domain name.
