Connect Domain Name to Hosting Account

6 Connect

Once you have your domain name and your website hosting company, you'll have to connect the two of them together.

This is done by "pointing" your domain name to your account at your web host.

To do this, you'll have to first get the "domain servers" (or DNS servers) used by your webhost company.

Domain servers are in the following format:

  • ns1.YourWebHostCompany.com
  • ns2.YourWebHostCompany.com
  • ns3.YourWebHostCompany.com
  • ns4.YourWebHostCompany.com

Your web host company may have 2, 3, 4 or more domain servers (DNS servers).  

Once you have these domain name servers, log on to your domain name registrar and find the option that lets you add or change them.   There may be temporary DNS servers already there;   replace them with those from your web host company.   There may be an option for a primary, secondary, etc,   if this is the case, then use all of them:

Primary Domain Name Server:       ns1.YourWebHostCompany.com
Secondary Domain Name Server:   ns2.YourWebHostCompany.com
etc.

Note:     If your web hosting company has spaces for more DNS servers than your Domain Name Registrar has,   then just enter the ones you have and leave the rest blank.

If your Web Hosting Company doesn't have enough spaces for all your DNS servers,   then just enter the ones you can.   As long as you have 2 entered,   all should be well.

Now that your Domain Name Servers are set, and your DNS propagation finishes, you'll be able to type your Domain Name into a browser and it should display your Website.

All new Domain Names have to go through a DNS Propagation delay when they are first set up. It is the time it takes for all the computers around the world to see your website and can take anywhere from a few hours to a few days.
