Change Name Servers with Domain.com

While HostGator cannot modify domains at third party registrars on your behalf, we can provide you with instructions on how to do so. Here's how you can make changes to your domain at Domain.com.

Step 1: Find Your Hosting Account Information

The first step would be to find out which name servers you should use for your HostGator hosting account.  This varies by server and type of hosting.  For instructions on how to find this information, please read the article:

Step 2: Changing Your Domain

  6. Click Save when you are finished making changes to your name servers.
Note: Once you have made changes to your name servers at the registrar there will be 24-48 hours of DNS propagation time during which your website and email may not be available.

HostGator customers can change their domain DNS within the cPanel interface. For more information, please see the related article:
