You could use BigRock to register your domain name. And for hosting your domain name, chances are you will buy shared hosting accounts from us.
It is normal to use one company to register your domain name and another company to host the domain name.
Your web server control panel and domain administration control panel might be different. But, to make your website live, we need to connect your domain and web hosting account.
Here, we assume that you have subscribed for our High-Frequency Compute instance with premium NVMe SSDs shared hosting service on the cloud. And now you must connect the domain name you registered from BigRock to your hosting account.
The Nameserver is an integral part of the whole Domain Name System.
But changing your domain’s Nameserver record is very easy.
Log in to Your BigRock Account
To change your Nameserver, you need to login to your BigRock Domain Control Panel. If you have a bunch of domains registered with BigRock; then you have to find your domain name first.
Go to Manage Orders > List/Search Orders and find your domain name which you want to change the Name Server. Once you see your Domain name, click on it.
Now click on the Name Servers option. Here we will change the Name Server values to point your domain name to our servers.
Within the pop-up, you will see your domain’s current Name Server record.
Change each Name Servers and click on the Update Name Servers button.
In this example, we will use server1.hostmywebsite.online as our Name Server 1 value. And server2.hostmywebsite.online as our second Name Server value.
These Nameserver values could change based on the hosting package you have chosen. Or based on the DirectAdmin account got allocated by our server to you.
How Long Will It Take Finish the Nameserver Changes?
It may take up to 24 hours to reflect your Nameserver changes across the globe. But, often, Nameserver record changes will propagate in a few minutes.
The Nameserver changes nowadays will propagate faster. But sometime, it will not reflect at your end quickly.
That would be because of the DNS caching of your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
Sometimes, your mobile browser will display contents from your old server. And your personal computer shows your website from your new server. This difference would usually be because of your ISP’s DNS cache.
How to Verify Your Nameserver Changes?
Type your domain name in the search box and choose NS from the drop-down menu.
You will see your domain’s current Nameservers across the internet. You might even see both previous and new values used by various test networks on this website.
Please wait until every test servers use the same Name Server value.
Once the Nameserver changes propagated entirely, you can change your website files.
For that, you can access your FREE DirectAdmin account.
