Updating your DNS at SharkHosting

The purpose of this tutorial is to teach you how to update your DNS (Domain Name Servers) settings at SharkHosting.co.uk. If you have already purchased your domain name through SharkHosting.co.uk, then this will have automatically been done for you. Your domain is already pointing to our servers and  can take 24 to 48 hours for your domain name to fully propagate. If you would like to update/change your DNS, the process below is the same.

As our new hosting client, you will need to point your domain name to our servers. You will have received our nameserver settings in the "Your Account Information" welcome email that was sent to you when you purchased your hosting package with us. There are two or more nameserver (NS) settings, and they must each be changed.

Let's get started by going to the SharkHosting.co.uk home page. Click on the Login link at the top of the page. Enter your Username and Password, and then click the Login button. You are now logged in to your SharkHosting.co.uk account. Click on the View Domains link on the right hand side. This will open the Domain list page. Select the domain name you wish to manage, and click the Domain Name-Click to Manage link. This opens the page for this domain. Click on the Nameservers tab. This will open the Nameserver panel for this domain name. You can see the current DNS settings, and these are the ones that need to be changed to the ones provided to you by our hosting company. Enter the new DNS settings in the boxes. When finished, click on the Submit button.

This takes you to a confirmation page, that says the modification has been completed successfully. If you scroll down, you can see the new DNS settings are listed in the boxes. When finished, click the Logout link in the upper right corner.

The settings have been successfully updated, and your domain is now pointing to your new hosting account on our servers. Please remember that it can take 24 to 48 hours for your domain name to fully propagate after you make these changes. This ends this tutorial. You now know how to update your DNS settings by changing them to our nameservers, when your domain name is registered with SharkHosting.co.uk.
