How to Update your Nameservers with 1 & 1

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 1 & 1 (1and1).

  1. Log in to your 1 & 1 account.
  2. Select Domains from the Domains & Web Space section.
  3. Select the check box next to the domain name you wish to modify.
  4. Click the drop-down menu for DNS from the toolbar above the domain names.
  5. Select Edit DNS Settings from the drop-down menu.
  6. Select the radio button for DNS in the Domain Data section under General settings.
  7. In the Basic DNS Settings section, select My name server from the drop-down menu.
  8. Under the Advanced DNS Settings section, enter your nameservers as follows:
    1. Enter your primary name server in the space provided.
    2. Select My secondary name server from the drop-down menu.
    3. Enter your secondary name server in the space provided.
    4. Leave the additional name server boxes blank.
  9. Click OK when you are finished making changes.
Please note: Once you have made changes to your nameservers at the registrar, there will be 24-48 hours of DNS propagation time during which your website and email may not be available.
