How do I change the nameservers for my domain name?
This article will show you how to change the nameservers for your domain name.
To update the nameservers of your domain name, you’ll first need to make sure that your domain isn’t locked or has the Domain Ownership Protection service enabled. For details on how to do this, please read our Support articles:
- How do I turn off Domain Ownership Protection (‘DOP’) for my domains?

Please note: it will take between 24-48 hours for any nameserver changes to become active.
