This purpose of this tutorial is to teach you how to update your DNS (Domain Name Servers) settings at NetworkSolutions.com. As our new hosting client, if you have already purchased your domain name through NetworkSolutions.com, you will need to go to their site and make the changes necessary for your web site to be visible. You will need to point your domain name to our servers. You received our nameserver settings in the welcome email that was sent to you when you purchased your hosting package with BigFoot Web Labs. There are two or more nameserver (NS) settings, and you must change them all.
Let's begin by going to the NetworkSolutions.com home page. Click on Manage Accounts. This will open the Log into Account Manager screen. Enter your Login ID and Password in the boxes, and then click the Login button. You are now logged in to your NetworkSolutions.com account. Click on ns WebAddress, which is located on the left hand side. From the drop-down, click on Manage Domain Names. This will open the Domain Details screen. Select Designated DNS, then click on Apply Changes. On the next screen, you will click on the Move DNS button.
This will open the Edit Domain Name Servers page. Scroll down, and enter the new DNS settings in the boxes. When you are done, click Move DNS. You will now be taken to a confirmation screen. You will need to click on the Edit DNS button. You will see your new settings listed on the next page, showing you that the settings have been successfully updated, and your domain is now pointing to your new hosting account on our servers. Scroll back up and click on the Log Out button.
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 NetworkSolutions.com.
