How to Change Name Servers with Yahoo.com

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 Yahoo.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 type of hosting. For instructions on how to find your DNS, please read the following article:

Step 2: Change your DNS

  1. Sign into your business control panel at Yahoo.com
  2. Click Manage Advanced DNS Settings.
  3. Click Change Name Servers.
  4. Delete the current name servers listed and replace them with those from step 1.
  5. Click Submit.

You will be taken to the Advanced DNS Settings page where your new DNS will be displayed. This indicates that your update was applied successfully.

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:
