The purpose of this tutorial is to teach you how to update your DNS (Domain Name Servers) settings at OpenSRS. If you have already purchased your domain name through OpenSRS, you will need to go to their site, and make the changes necessary for your web site to be visible. As our new hosting client, you will need to point your domain name to our servers. 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 they must each be changed.
Let’s begin by going to the OpenSRS login page. Enter your Domain Name, Username and Password in the boxes, and then click the Manage Domains button. You are now logged in to your OpenSRS account. Click on the Name Servers link at the top of the page. This will open the Manage Name Servers page. Scroll down, and you can see the current DNS settings, and these are the ones that need to be changed to our hosting company. Enter the new DNS settings you were provided in your welcome email in the boxes. Scroll down, and when finished, click on the Save Configuration button. You will now see a confirmation that the modifications were successful. You can now click on the Logout link at the top of the page.
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 OpenSRS.
