How to change Nameserver in BigRock
Last updated on November 4th, 2018 at 03:13 am.
You could use BigRock to domain name registration. And for hosting your domain name, chances are you’ll 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 separate. But, we need to connect your domain and web hosting account.
Here, we assume that you have subscribed for our premium cloud SSD shared hosting service. And now you must connect the domain name you registered from BigRock to your hosting account.
You must configure your domain to point to our servers to make your domain accessible online.
The Nameserver is an integral part of the whole domain systems. But changing your domain’s Nameserver record is very easy.
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. As soon as you see your Domain name, click on it.
Now click on on the Name Servers. Here we will change the Name Server values to point your domain name to our high performing SSD servers.
Within the pop-up, you will see your domain’s current Name Server record. Change each Name Server 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 cPanel account got allocated by our server to you.
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
Visit whatsmydns.net or DNSMap. Type your domain name in the search box and choose NS from the drop-down menu. You will see your domain’s current Nameserver 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 cPanel account. And enable your FREE Cloudflare CDN with our exclusive FREE Railgun technology.
Are you looking to use our FREE Migration support to migrate your website? Then you may not need to change the Name Server yourself. We will take care of that.
