Updating Your DNS at DomainSite.com

The purpose of this tutorial is to teach you how to update your DNS (Domain Name Servers) settings at DomainSite.com. If you have already purchased your domain name through DomainSite.com, you will need to go to their site, and make the changes necessary for your web site to be visible. As our new hosting client, you will need to point your domain name to our servers. You received our nameserver settings in the welcome email that was sent when you purchased your hosting package with us. There are two or more nameserver (NS) settings, and they must each be changed.

Let's begin by going to the DomainSite.com home page. Click on the My Account link on the right hand side. Enter your Username and Password in the boxes, and then click the Submit button. You are now logged in to your DomainSite.com account. Scroll down, and click on the Select button for the Manage Registered Domain Names link on the left hand side. This will open the Edit Domains page. Click on the domain name you wish to manage. This opens the page for this domain. Click on the Edit Name Servers link.

This will open a Change Name Server page for this domain name. You can see the current DNS settings, and these are the ones that need to be changed to the ones provided to you in the email our hosting company sent when you opened your account. Scroll down, and enter the first DNS setting in the box provided. Now click on Add. Continue adding the DNS settings, and clicking on Add after each until you have them all entered. Now, you need to remove the old Name Servers that you no longer want by clicking on the remove link after the name. The DNS settings are now updated successfully. Scroll to the top of the page, and click on the Log Out link.

The settings have been successfully updated, and your domain is now pointing to your new hosting account on our servers. Please remember that it can take 24 to 48 hours for your domain name to fully propagate after you make these changes. This ends this tutorial. You now know how to update your DNS settings by changing them to our name servers, when your domain name is registered with DomainSite.com.
