How to Change Name Server in BigRock

How to Change Name Server in BigRock

You can use BigRock to register your domain name. And for hosting your domain name, you can buy shared hosting accounts from us.

Using one company to register your domain name and another to host the site is normal. 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.

If you’ve subscribed to our premium NVMe SSD shared hosting service, you’ll need to connect your domain name from BigRock to your Rovity hosting account.

What Is a Nameserver?

A nameserver is a computer server that translates domain names into IP addresses.

Domain names are alphanumeric aliases that are used to identify websites. IP addresses are the numerical addresses used to locate computers on the Internet.

The nameserver record tells the Internet where to find your website. So if you want users to be able to find your website, you will need to change your domain’s nameserver record to point to your hosting account. This is done quickly through your BigRock account and will ensure visitors can access your website quickly and reliably.

It is quick and easy to change your domain’s nameserver record.

Do you know the nameserver is integral to the Domain Name System? So, please double-check that the updated information is accurate before submitting your changes.

The Domain Name System (DNS) is a system that helps map domain names to IP addresses. When you change your domain’s nameserver record, you change which server is responsible for translating the domain name into an IP address.

It is crucial to double-check that the revised information is correct before submitting your changes to ensure your domain name points to the correct server.

We’ll now change the nameservers for the domain you registered through BigRock.

Log in to Your BigRock Account

You can log into your BigRock Domain Control Panel to change your nameservers. You won’t have any problems finding your domain name even if many domains are registered with them.

To locate your domain name, navigate to Manage Orders > List/Search Orders. After you find it, modifying the Name Server is easy!

In this example, I use as our Name Server 1 address. And as our second Name Server value – Depending on the hosting package you have selected or the DirectAdmin account assigned to you, these values may vary.

Do Nameserver Changes Take a Long Time?

Experiencing delays when attempting to make updates can certainly be annoying. Yet, it is worth noting that these changes usually propagate extremely rapidly – often within minutes.

When you are updating your website’s DNS, there may be some issues that you encounter. Your Internet Service Provider could have a DNS cache which might take time to update its records. However, people should still be able to access the content from the old server on their mobile phones or laptops.

This is because DNS records are stored in a distributed database. Different ISPs will have their DNS records stored on their servers and must be updated manually or automatically. This can take time, but once updated, any device accessing your website can retrieve the latest records and access your site via the new server.

However, these changes take time, and there can sometimes be delays when implementing these changes.

Suppose you are accessing the website from the same computer as before. In that case, your device has likely cached information from the old server.

When you visit the website, please be aware that there could be a slight delay in viewing the most up-to-date content. Your computer may still have an older server IP address stored in its memory. Therefore, outdated content might remain visible for some time. The difference may result from your ISP storing information in its DNS cache.

I hope this explains why there is a delay in the change. The change is taking longer than expected due to the system’s complexity. This is because it is difficult to predict how long it will take to make the necessary revisions. Additionally, making the change may require additional resources, which can further prolong the timeline.

DNS propagation typically takes anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. Sometimes, changes can take up to 72 hours to be updated across the Internet. Therefore, it’s necessary to be patient and wait for changes.

How to Verify Your Nameserver Changes?

When you change your nameserver settings, it takes some time for the updated information to be sent to DNS servers worldwide. The tool at allows you to check how quickly the changed data is propagating so you can make sure the change was successful.

    Hi Gifly,
    Great info you shared. BTW support rep at Hostgator gave me a link to another great tool

    I compared DNSChecker with WhatsmyDNS and found that DNSChecker has a lot more DNS servers to check propagation results from. I just wanted to share to help readers get better propagation results.

    Hello Gifty,

    Thanks for your article. I have one question as I’m pretty confused.
    I followed your instructions to check my dns propagation, however, site is reporting one IP, and when I check with other tools such as I get a different IP.

    Is there any error on their tools, or is just the propagation process rolling?

    Please clarify,

      That’s interesting, John.

      If shows one IP and DNS Propagation Check shows a new set of IP completely, then that IP would be the old or new IP.

      If any of the websites show a mix of IPs, then we can assume that the propagation is happening across the globe as you see their screen.

      If you checked the propagation of your domain name using multiple checking websites, and only one of them showing old or unknown values, then we may think that website’s checking tool is not working as expected.
