Updating your DNS at GoDaddy.com

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

  • Click on the Domain Manager link on the left hand side to open the Domains page.
  • Click on the domain name you wish to manage to open the page for this domain.
  • Now click on the name servers Icon to open the Nameserver panel for this domain name.

You can now see the current DNS settings, and these are the ones that need to be changed to point to LampNetworks.

  • Click on the link called Manage to open the Set name servers page.
  • Erase and enter the correct DNS settings in the boxes for Name Server 1, Name Server 2 and more if required.
  • Click the OK button (you will get a screen informing you that the changes have been submitted).
  • Click OK 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.
