2018-07-09 04:46


In order to host a website on your domain name, you will need to obtain the Name Servers from the Web Hosting company with whom you wish to host your website and point your domain name to these Name Servers.

To Modify Name Servers of your Domain Name

  1. Contact your Web Hosting Company and find out from them the Name Servers you need to use.

    If you have purchased Web Hosting for your domain name through WebHostSG, then you need to set the Name Servers as specified by WebHostSG.

  2. Login to your Client Portal. Learn How

  3. On the Client Area page go click on Domains.

    About Lock / Suspension

    If the domain name is Locked/Suspended by WebHostSG, you will have to first unlock/unsuspend it before proceeding further.

  4. To the right of the domain you wish to make changes click Manage.

Upon modifying your domain name's Name Servers, your website would begin appearing in a web browser, after about 24 to 48 hours (provided your Web Hosting package is properly setup and you have uploaded the content of your website). This is a standard time-frame required for a process called as DNS Propagation to complete Worldwide. This process is not controlled by any one ISP/company and therefore it can not be hastened.
