How to Change Name Servers with TierraNet

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 Tierra.net.

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

To change your Tierra.net DNS:

  1. Sign in to your Tierra.net account.
  2. Navigate to the Domains tab. You will be redirected to Domains Services.
  3. Look for the domain name for which you are updating the DNS.
  4. Expand the domain and click on the edit link under Nameservers
  5. Replace the current nameserver entries.
  6. Click Preview Changes.
  7. Click Confirm Changes.
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:
