Updating your DNS at dotster.com

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

  • Click on the My Domains link at the top of the page to open the Account Management Control Panel page.
  • Now click on the domain name you wish to manage to open the page for this domain.
  • 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.
  • Click on the link called Update Name Servers to open the Name Server Update page.
  • Enter the first (Primary) DNS settings in the box and click ADD.
  • Continue adding the DNS settings and clicking on Add until you have them all entered as given to you in your LampNetworks welcome email.
  • When you are done, enter your email address in the box marked Confirmation Email Address.
  • Click on Continue to open a screen that will show the results and confirm that the changes were updated successfully.
  • You can now click on the logout link in the upper right corner or click on the Back link just to be sure that the new DNS settings are listed.

Please remember that it can take 24 to 48 hours for your domain name to fully propagate after you make these changes.
