How to update nameservers for my domain?

What is a nameserver?

Nameservers help control where the network is to be routed when the visitors access your website. When a domain name is registered, it is automatically set to the "parked" nameservers, which just displays a blank/ temporary page. However, since the domain name is probably purchased for the purpose of creating a website, you might need to change your nameservers to connect the site to your domain.

There are many options of course, as to which nameservers you'll need to use, but it mainly depends on where your domain is registered and where your website is hosted. For example, if your domain name is registered or hosted with Hoasted, use the Hoasted information; if it's registered with or hosted by another company, use the Another Company information.

What are the default name servers for Hoasted?

Default nameservers for Hoasted are:

ns1.hoasted.nl

ns2.hoasted.eu

ns3.hoasted.com
