How to Change Nameservers to Bluehost?
Name services basically tell the name service protocol that can be implemented for the name of your domain.
Everyone who owns a domain needs to give importance to name servers because they are as important as the web hosts. Some steps of changing your name server are mentioned below.
- Open your account in your domain name registrar company on the web (GoDaddy, Namecheap etc..). Log into your account using your username and password. Download the page completely to see the list of your domain name.
- After downloading the page, select your domain name. In case you have multiple domain names, you will have to be very careful so that you choose the perfect domain name and don’t go wrong.
- After you have chosen the appropriate domain name go to the configuration or the control page by clicking on the link that is provided to you. The link to be chosen is the one that allows changing of the domain name.
- The next step is to delete the old name servers and in place of them enter the new ones. For both primary and secondary fields, use correct name server codes. After this, check your name server for corresponding codes.
- You can now save the changes that you have made. Each one has a different registrar company and depending on your company the modifications may take from 24-48 hours and will then be into effect. If even after 24 hours it does not change you will have to re-check the process.
- The last step is to log onto your account again after a few days and then check your modified domain name by clicking on it. Go through it to make sure that all the changes you had made were implemented. In case any change is not implemented you can re-enter the information.
