How to Change Name Servers with Name.com

While HostGator cannot modify DNS at third-party registrars on your behalf, we can provide you with instructions on how to do so. Please also note that these instructions may change without us knowing. Here's how you can change your DNS at Name.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 DNS, please read the following article:


Step 2: Change your DNS

  1. Sign in to your Name.com account.
  2. Navigate to the My Domains button in the upper right-hand corner.
  3. Click on the domain name you are modifying.
  4. On the sidebar, click on Manage Nameservers.
  5. Scroll to the  Manage Nameservers under the Nameservers column.
  6. Click on the Delete all button to clear current nameservers entries.
  7. Enter the primary nameserver in the field provided and click Add next to it, then repeat for the second
  8. Click Apply Changes.

A notification will show that your update was applied successfully.

Please note: Once you have made changes to your DNS 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:
