Making DNS Changes at Register.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 My Account button at the top of the page.

You will then be required to enter the login and password you were provided by Register.com.

Once logged in, if you have only done domain name registered at register.com the domain name will be selected by default.

However, if you have more than one domain, you will need to select the domain name from the list.

Once selected click on 'Modify DNS' above the domain list.

Scroll down where you will be able to to see the existing nameservers already associated with the domain name. You will need to check these off the delete them and add your new nameservers.  If you do not check them off you will simply be adding the new nameservers on and not changing them.

Once checked off, right underneath will be where you must enter the name servers as specified in your Welcome E-mail (i.e. ns1.hostinghelper.co.uk).

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.

Once done you will need to enter an accessible email address to confirm your changes.  Once you have done that click on 'submit' to start the process.

Register.com will always ask you to double check and confirm your changes.

Once done click to confirm.  That is it you have submitted your changes and now need to wait for the confirmation request to come through to your email account sent from Register.com

Once received you must click on the confirmation link within 3 days after which the request is automatically voided.

You will then need to click on confirm the finalise the changes.
