Updating your DNS at NetFirms.ca

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

  • Click on Domains at the top of the page and from the drop-down menu, click on Domain Manager to open the Domain Manager page.
  • Click on the domain name you wish to manage to open the page for this domain.
  • Now click on the DNS tab to open the Name Servers 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 the DNS settings and when you are done, click on the Modify button.
  • The panel will now show that the name servers were successfully updated and the new DNS settings are listed in the Name Server Information boxes.
  • 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.
