I am here at my Namecheap dashboard. All you really need to do is change the DNS settings here which are the name servers, okay? It is on the Namecheap basic DNS and what you need to do here is change it to custom DNS and you’re going to need to point it to the two name servers for whoever your web hosting is.
Liquidweb Name Host
So, since I am using Liquidweb, it is going to be the Liquidweb name host. If you don’t know what your name servers are for your web hosting company you can probably just contact their support and they will tell you. It is pretty standard operating procedure. Liquidweb I found it in here. It is these two – NS.Liquidweb.com and NS1.Liquidweb.com so what I would do is I would copy those and post them in here. Let me do that really quickly here.
Then I would hit this check mark and save those for this domain here, PrestonWebsiteTest.xyz. Okay, so there it is. It’s done, but it is not instant. It is going to take a little bit for this to register and to point over to whoever your web host is. My web host is Liquidweb. Now you would go to your actual web host and what you need to do is set it up. You need to set up this new website on your host and tell it that. Well, you don’t need to tell it is coming from Liquidweb because you just pointed your domain to it but you need to set it up in here.
What you would do is here, I’m just going to go ahead and create it real quick here, so this is the actual domain and I’m going to paste it in there and I’ve got what they call shared hosting so I can have as many domains as I want for a certain amount of bandwidth every month. Then what I would do is I would hit create DNS zone. It is going to give me this warning saying hey, you got to make sure you want to point your DNS zones to these name servers.
