Description

The first step for setting up a website is to choose a domain name for your business or website and registering it. This will be your address on the Internet.

The second and just as important step is to choose your hosting. Your website won’t be up without these two working together. This is why you need to make sure your domain name points at your hosting platform.

If your domain name and hosting platform are ready, we can start the process of connecting your domain name to your hosting account.

The most common steps are as follows:

  1. Login to your domain name registrar account.
  2. Go to the management page for the domain name you’d like to connect your hosting account to.
  3. Go to the “Manage DNS” page of the selected domain name
  4. Scroll to “Nameservers”
  5. Click the Change button next to where it says, “Using default nameservers.”
  6. Choose the Custom option; not Default.
  7. Fill in the nameserver addresses; one will start with NS1 and the other with NS2.
  8. Click Save and you’re done
