Updating your DNS at OpenSRS

The purpose of this tutorial is to explain how to update your DNS (Domain Name Servers) settings at OpenSRS. If you have already purchased your domain name through OpenSRS, you will need to go to their site and make the changes necessary for your website to be visible. As our new hosting client, you will need to point your domain name to our servers.

You received our nameserver settings in the welcome email that was sent to you when you purchased your hosting package with LampNetworks. There are two or more nameserver (NS) settings, and they must each be changed.

When you are logged into your OpenSRS account:

  • Click on the Name Servers link at the top of the page to open the Manage Name Servers page.
  • Scroll down, and you can see the current DNS settings, these are the ones that need to be changed to point to LampNetworks.
  • In the boxes, enter the new DNS settings you were provided with in your welcome email.
  • Scroll down when finished and click on the Save Configuration button.
  • You are now at a confirmation screen that lets you know the update was successful.
  • Scroll back up and log out.

The settings have been successfully updated and your domain is now pointing to your new hosting account on our servers. Please remember that it can take 24 to 48 hours for your domain name to fully propagate after you make these changes.
