How do I point my domain name at InstantSite?

This article will explain how you can point your registered domain name at your InstantSite package using the DNS.

Please Note: It will take between 24 - 48 hours for the new DNS records to become active.

Firstly, you need to ensure your domain is pointed to our nameservers:

  • ns.123-reg.co.uk
  • ns2.123-reg.co.uk

If the domain is not pointed to the 123-reg nameservers, you will be unable to manage them from the 123-reg control panel.

For more information on changing your nameservers please view the following article:
