HOW TO SET DOMAIN NAME SERVER AT YOUR REGISTRAR


         Change Name Severs At Domain Registrar


After you have purchased Web Hosting Account you need to modify Domain Name Serversat your domain registrar who in our case is GoDaddy.
Once you get Hosting Account Login Information email from Web Hosting Company, i.e. HostGator in our case than in that email you will also find the name server details like:
ns1.hostgator.com
ns2.hostgator.com
NameServers usually start with letters ns like ns1 or ns15 or ns3233, etc and should be two or more NameServers in number. If you are unable to find it then contact your web hosting company through phone or email, and they will inform you the name servers being allotted to your hosting account.
Once you have the Name Servers then login to your GoDaddy Domain control panel fromwww.GoDaddy.com

5 - And on next page you will get a confirmation message like:
“Your changes have been submitted.
These changes usually take 2 hours. However, it may take up to 48 hours for these changes to take effect. These time frames are estimates and not guaranteed.”
In case if you are unable to change the Name Servers then just contact GoDaddy, and they will provide you instructions on how to do it.
However, after changing the NameServers, you still need to wait for 24-48 hours for Name Servers to propagate around the world and then only your site could be published online.
