Complete guide to change Nameserver of Namecheap.com

Hi friends, today I am going to share how to register and add new nameserver on namecheap.com domain.For a domain name to work for website and email, it requires properly configured DNS (Domain Name System). Without that Internet users cannot load the website from the correct server or send you email. When you register a domain, you have to configure DNS servers (also called name servers) at the domain registrar. These are typically two hostnames in the format of ns1.yourhostingservice.com and ns2.yourhostingservice.com. This basically delegates the DNS service for your domain to those name servers from where every aspect of domain, subdomains, and email can be controlled.

2.go to dashboard.

3. Select Domain List from the left sidebar and click the Manage button next to your domain.

4.click on “Advance DNS” button from top menubar.
