How to Change Name Servers with Dotster

While HostGator cannot modify DNS at third-party registrars on your behalf, we can provide you with instructions on how to do so. Here's how you can change your DNS at Dotster.com.

Step 1: Find the DNS for Your Hosting Account

The first step is to find out which name servers you should use for your HostGator hosting account; this varies by server and hosting. For instructions on how to find your name servers, please read the following article:

Step 2: Update DNS

  1. Sign in to your Dotster.com Domains Dashboard.
  2. Click Manage on the domain name that you wish to modify.
  3. Click the Gear Icon if you are in the list view.
  4. Click on the DNS & Nameservers on the menu.
  5. Click the three-dotted icon to edit your name servers.
  6. Input the name servers found in your HostGator welcome email.
  7. Click Save.


PLEASE NOTE: Once you have made changes to your domain at the registrar, there will be 24-48 hours of DNS propagation time, during which your website and email may not be available.

HostGator customers can change their domain DNS within the cPanel interface. For more information, please see the related articles:
