Setting the New Nameservers

Log into the registrar where you bought the domain name. There are many companies where you can buy domains. We are going to use A1WEBSITEPRO.COM  as the registrar but all legitimate companies have something similar.

Look for a section called “Domains” and click on manage.

Propagation for Name Server Changes

This is a propagation time for the changes to take place. What is propagation? It is the time it takes for the changes to take effect. If you have a website with a lot of content and back links to it then it can take up to 72 hours for this to happen. Most of the time though it only takes a few minutes.
