How to Change Name Server in BigRock

by | Last Updated Apr 23, 2020 | Getting Started | 3 comments

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

It is normal to use one company to register your domain name and another company to host the domain name.

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, I assume that you have subscribed for our High-Frequency Compute instance with 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 a bunch of 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 which you want 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 as our Name Server 1 value.

And 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 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 sometime, 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

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.

Are you looking to use our FREE Migration support to migrate your website? Then you may not need to change the Name Server yourself.

We are here to take care of that.

We engineered our cloud infrastructure with Performance, Speed, Scalability and Security in mind.

That’s why we built Rovity with AWS, CloudLinux OS, DirectAdmin and LiteSpeed Web Server.

    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.

    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.
