Updating Name Servers at Public Domain Registry (PDR)
While HostGator cannot modify domains 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 domain at Public Domain Registry (PDR).
PDR offers services to resellers and does not allow non-reseller customers to register domains directly with them. If a WHOIS search indicates that PDR is the registrar, the domain is most likely registered through one of its many resellers.
Step 1: Find your hosting account information
The first step would be 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 out your information, please read the article:
Step 2: Change the name servers
You will need to visit the website or contact the reseller who registered your domain to change the name servers. Since PDR offers resellers an API, reseller websites can vary dramatically, so it is hard to give specific instructions that would work across all PDR resellers.
HostGator customers can change their domain DNS within the cPanel interface. For more information, please see the related article:

Since HostGator is not affiliated with PDR or their resellers, you would need to contact PDR or the reseller for support if you need assistance with their website.
