Modifying Name Servers (Registered through FastDomain)

Summary

If you purchased your domain from FastDomain, then you can manage it online by using the Domain Manager and going to the Name Servers tab. Please note: Any changes to nameservers can take up to 72 hours to propagate.

If you did NOT purchase your domain from us, we are not able to change the name servers because we don't control the domain. Please contact the domain registrar (place where you bought the domain) and ask how to make the name server updates. Most domain registrars have a tool so you can do this yourself. Then you will remove the current name servers and replace them with the name servers from your welcome email.

Updating the Name Servers

  1. Login to your FastDomain Control Panel.
  2. Click the Domains tab along the top.
  3. Choose your domain name by putting a check mark next to it. The right side will populate with tabs.
  4. Please click the Name Servers tab on the right.
  5. Select Use Custom Nameservers.
  6. Enter in the new name servers.
  7. Click Save Nameserver Settings


  8. Note: Please allow 24-72 hours for the DNS propagation of name servers to fully propagate.

For more information about how to update other DNS records such as CNAME, TXT, SRV or A records, please read our DNS changes article.
