While HostGator cannot modify nameservers at third party registrars on your behalf, we can provide you with instructions on how to do so. Here's how you can change your nameservers at Name.com.

Step 1: Find Out Nameservers for Your Hosting Account

The first step is to find out which nameservers you should use for your HostGator hosting account. This varies by server and type of hosting plan. For instructions on how to find out your nameservers, please read the article:

Step 2: Changing Nameservers

  1. Sign into your Name.com account.
  2. Click on the Account icon at the top of the page.

  4. On the sidebar, click on Edit Nameservers.
  5. Click the X next to the old nameservers to remove them.
  6. Enter the first nameserver in the field provided and click Add next to it.
  7. Repeat for the second nameserver.
