Making DNS Changes at Dotster.com



Remember that it takes 24-72 hours for these changes to take effect.  This process is called DNS Propagation. The first thing you need to do is to login to your account manager, by clicking on the MyAccount button at the top of the page.

You will then be presented with a restricted area popup password box, where you will be required to enter your Dotster username and password.

Once logged in scroll down to the 'Account Management' section.

Once selected click on update name servers, then select the domain name you wish to modify and click 'Manage Domains'

Once selected scroll down to Registered Domain Functions and click on Update Name Servers.

You will now be able to see the existing nameservers for the domain name.  Now enter the name servers as specified in your Welcome E-mail (i.e. ns1.hostinghelper.co.uk) once done submit the changes by clicking on 'Add'

After entering the first primary nameserver, Dotster will automatically what it assumes will be the secondary nameserver.  Check this for accuracy and then add it.

You only ever need two nameservers to point your domain name correctly, therefore, unless there is more than two nameservers listed in your welcome e-mail you do not need to add any more.

You will then need to enter your e-mail address to receive a confirmation of the changes via e-mail.

After a few seconds the screen should display a message similar to the one below:

"Update complete  with the following results:

YOURDOMAIN.COM: Name Servers Successfully Updated"
