Updating your DNS at MelbourneIT.com.au

The purpose of this tutorial is to explain how to update your DNS (Domain Name Servers) settings at MelbourneIT.com.au. If you have already purchased your domain name through MelbourneIT.com.au, 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 MelbourneIT.com.au account:

  • Click on the Manage Domain Names on the left hand side to open the Manage Domain Names page.
  • Scroll down and click on the domain name you wish to manage to open the page for this domain.
  • Under the DNS section, click on the Redelegate Domain Name link to open the nameserver panel for this domain name.
  • You can see the current DNS settings, these are the ones that need to be changed to the ones provided to you in the email LampNetworks sent when you opened your account.
  • Enter your new DNS settings and click on continue when your done.
  • You are now back at the Manage page and if you scroll down you can see that the name servers have been updated to point to our servers.
  • Scroll back up and go to My Account 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.
