Nameservers are two strings that point a domain to a specified server. This is what makes a domain that is purchased from one company, work with the web hosting services of another company.
Nameservers can be updated through your client area of the company you purchased your domain from. They are in the form of;
(these are just example nameservers, yours will look similar, but be different)
Once you update your nameservers it will take up to 48 hours for them to fully propogate. What this means is that for anyone who has not visited your website recently, it will start working almost immediately. For anyone that has visited your website recently, which most likely you have, it will take up to 48 hours to start working properly. Usually it only takes a few hours though.
While your nameservers are updating you will either get a connection error in your browser or you will see your old website.
Remember, this is only for people who have recently visited your website.
This process is not controlled by us. It is up to your ISP and how fast they are at updating nameservers.
