You could use BigRock to register your domain name. And for hosting your domain name, chances are you will buy shared hosting accounts from us.
It is normal to use one company to register your domain name and another company to host it.
Your web server control panel and domain administration control panel might be different. But, to make your website live, we need to connect your domain and web hosting account.
Here, we assume that you have subscribed for our premium NVMe SSDs shared hosting service on the cloud. And now, you must connect the domain name you registered from BigRock to your hosting account.
The Nameserver is an integral part of the whole Domain Name System.
But changing your domain’s Nameserver record is very easy.
Log in to Your BigRock Account
To change your Nameserver, you need to login to your BigRock Domain Control Panel. If you have many domains registered with BigRock, then you have to find your domain name first.
Go to Manage Orders > List/Search Orders and find your domain name to change the Name Server.
Once you see your Domain name, click on it.
Within the pop-up, you see your domain’s current Name Server record.
Change each Name Servers and click on the Update Name Servers button.
In this example, I use server1.hostmywebsite.online as our Name Server 1 value.
And server2.hostmywebsite.online as our second Name Server value.
These Nameserver values could change based on the hosting package you have chosen. Or based on the DirectAdmin account got allocated by our server to you.
How Long Will It Take to Finish the Nameserver Changes?
It may take up to 24 hours to reflect your Nameserver changes across the globe.
But, often, Nameserver record changes propagate in a few minutes.
But sometimes, the changes may not reflect at your end quickly.
That would be because of the DNS caching of your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
Sometimes, your mobile browser display contents from your old server. And your personal computer shows your website from your new server. This difference would usually be because of your ISP’s DNS cache.
How to Verify Your Nameserver Changes?
Once you change Nameserver in BigRock, visit whatsmydns.net.
Type your domain name in the search box and choose NS from the drop-down menu.
You can see your domain’s current Nameservers across the internet.
You might even see both previous and new values used by various test networks on this website.
Please wait until every test servers use the same Name Server value.
Once the Nameserver changes propagated entirely, you can change your website files.
For that, you can access your FREE DirectAdmin account.
