Share:

This is a step-by-step guide on how to change your nameservers over to our servers.
If your service isn’t listed, please contact that service’s customer service department.

Please note that changing DNS Nameservers does not instantly make your domain name accessible from our servers. The changes, depending on the company and could take up to 48 hours or more.
