How To: Rename your name servers with your hosting servers

Rename your name servers with your hosting servers

Edit name servers in the domain management area. If you're buying domain and web hosting from a single provider, like Hostgator, then the domain name automatically has a corresponding host.

But if you buy a domain (from name.com) & host (hostgator) from different providers, then you have to replace the server names in domain (host.com) with the server names of Hostgator in order for your site to work..

* Login to the domain registration site on which you've registered your domain
* Once you are signed in, search for your domain and click on it
* You can see your default name server. Click on the "edit name servers" option
* Remove the default name server one by one
* Enter the new name server that is the server name of your host provider and click on add
