Pointing your domain to the server
Posted by Jen on 30 September 2007 01:01 AM
To point your domain to the server, input the nameserver addresses given in your welcome email. Your domain company will require at least 2 nameserver addresses. They may also ask for IP addresses, you can leave these blank.

You will need to change the nameservers for your domain through your Domain Registrar (Portfoliositez does NOT offer domain name registration services).

Below, you will find links with instructions for some of the most common registrars:
