As our new hosting client, if you have already purchased your domain name through 123-reg.co.uk, you will need to go to their site and make the changes necessary to your DNS settings for your web site to be visible. You will need to point your domain name to our servers. The purpose of this tutorial is to teach you how to update your DNS (Domain Name Servers) settings at 123-reg.co.uk. You received our nameserver settings in the welcome email that was sent when you purchased your hosting package with us. There are two or more nameserver (NS) settings, and you must edit all of them.
Let’s begin by going to the 123-reg.co.uk home page. Click on the Log in to your Control Panel link. Enter your account Username and Password in the boxes, and click OK. You are now logged in to your 123-reg.co.uk account. Click on the Manage link. Now click on the Change name servers link. This takes you to the Change name servers page, where you need to scroll down to the Nameserver boxes.
Enter your new DNS settings in the boxes. Continue until you have added all your name servers as given to you in your welcome email. When you have entered all the name servers, click on the Change name servers button. That completes the changing of the DNS settings. You may now click on the Logout link in the right hand corner.
The settings have been successfully updated, and your domain is now pointing to your new hosting account on our servers. Please remember that it can take 24 to 48 hours for your domain name to fully propagate after you make these changes. This ends this tutorial. You now know how to update your DNS settings by changing them to our name servers, when your domain name is registered with 123-reg.co.uk.
