Changing the NS (Name Server) records for your domain involves updating the DNS settings to point to a new set of name servers. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to change NS records:
Log In to Your Domain Registrar Account:
- Go to the website of the domain registrar where you purchased your domain.
- Log in to your account using your credentials.
Access DNS Management:
- Look for a section related to DNS Management, DNS Settings, or Domain Management in your account dashboard.
- Access the DNS settings for the domain you want to update.
Locate Name Server Records:
- Find the NS (Name Server) records section. This might be labeled as “Name Servers,” “DNS Servers,” or similar.
Update NS Records:
- Replace the existing name server records with the new ones provided by your new hosting provider or name server provider.
- You typically need to enter at least two name server records.
- After updating the NS records, save your changes.
- Keep in mind that changes to NS records may take some time (usually up to 48 hours) to propagate across the internet.
- After some time, use online DNS lookup tools to verify that your domain’s NS records have been updated.
If you’re transferring your domain to a new hosting provider, they will typically provide you with the necessary NS records to use. Ensure that you enter the correct NS records to avoid interruption of your website and email services.
