Changing the IP of your custom nameservers

Last Updated: Jun 16, 2017

If you have custom nameservers set up and you need to change the IP address that they are pointing to, please follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your Name.com account and click My Account at the top. 
  2. Click My Domains on the left in green.
  3. Click the domain name you would like to manage.
  4. Click NS Registration on the left side.
  5. To the right of the nameserver you need to change, click the blue Edit button.
  6. Enter the new IP address in the field that appears and click Add.
  7. Click the blue Edit button again, and click Remove next to the old IP address.
  8. Click Remove a second time.

If you already have your custom nameservers set up to point your domain names, you do not need to add them to the domain name again. Once you have changed the IP address, it will take roughly 24 hours for the changes to propagate.
