How do I change the nameservers for my domain name?
To change the nameservers for your domain name, please follow these instructions:
Please note: before proceeding, you’ll 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?
- How do I lock/unlock my domain name?
It will take between 24-48 hours for any new nameserver (DNS) records to become active.
