The purpose of this tutorial is to teach you how to update your DNS (Domain Name Servers) settings at MelbourneIT.com.au. If you have already purchased your domain name through MelbourneIT.com.au, 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 MelbourneIT.com.au home page. Click on My Account. Enter your Username and Password in the boxes, and then click the Log In button. You are now logged in to your MelbourneIT.com.au account. Click on the Manage Domain Names on the left hand side. This will open the Manage Domain Names page. Scroll down and click on the domain name you wish to manage. This opens the page for this domain.
Under the DNS section, click on the Redelegate Domain Name link. This will open the Nameserver panel for this domain name. You can see the current DNS settings, and these are the ones that need to be changed to our hosting company. Now enter the new DNS settings as provided by us in our welcome email to you when you purchased your hosting account. Then click on Continue. This will return you to the Manage page, and if you scroll down you can see that the name servers have been updated to point to our servers. Scroll back up, and when finished go to My Account. Now you can click on Log Out.
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 MelbourneIT.com.au.
