In this topic, we’ll be discussing how to manage your domain registration(s) name servers via the billing control panel.

The name servers set for the domain control what servers host your domains resource records, which consist of your typical A Records, CNAME Records, MX Records, etc… that dictate what server IP Address your site, mail, and other services reside.

If you are trying to determine what name servers your site should point to… then you can refer to the account information welcome e-mail for the hosting package you signed up with. This hosting package should contain this necessary set of name servers that your domain should resolve to in order to be live with our services.

If hosting your sites DNS elsewhere you will need to obtain this information from that third-party prior to following the steps below.

You can view our steps below on managing what name servers your domain(s) point to below.
