If your domain is registered with another domain registrar provider

If your domain is registered with a different domain registrar provider and you want to point all its hosted services including Web, DNS and Email to StudioCoast you will need to update your Name Servers. Name Servers are a setting you can change under your account with your current domain registrar provider.

You will need to login to your account with your domain provider and find the section to manage the domain and update "Name Servers". (If you are unsure who you have registered your domain with, you can also do a WHOIS lookup and look for registrar name.)

Remove all existing Name Server values and replace with the StudioCoast Name Server values which are:

  Value IP Address
Name Server 1 ns1.auzgc.com 103.4.212.2
Name Server 2 ns2.auzgc.com 52.64.132.13

Once you have updated the Name Servers, it may take 2 - 24 hours for those changes to propagate globally.

If you are not sure where to go to edit your Name Servers, contact your domain registrar's support for assistance.

Once propagated, your hosting services including Web, DNS and Email will all point to your hosting account with StudioCoast. This also means you can start making any chages you need to the DNS in hostControl.

If your domain is registered with StudioCoast
