How to change Nameservers

In this guide we will walk you through how to change the nameservers of your domain.

What is a nameserver?

A nameserver is essentially a server that contains DNS information for a number of domain names. If your domain name has multiple nameservers, the DNS information is retrieved from one of the nameservers at random and the others act as redundant nameservers in case any issues occur.

All domain names managed with Easy Domains are hosted on our default nameservers, except those where other provisions may have been made. You would typically look to change nameservers if you are changing/migrating all your services to another hosting provider.
