Introduction: Pointing your domain to your web hosting is a crucial step in getting your website online. This tutorial will guide you through the process of linking your domain name to your web hosting provider's server.

Prerequisites: Before you begin, ensure you have the following:

  1. A registered domain name.
  2. Access to your domain registrar's control panel.
  3. Information about your web hosting provider's DNS settings.

Steps to Point Your Domain:

Step 1: Log in to Your Domain Registrar's Account

  • Go to your domain registrar's website, if you registered domain with YottaSrc, just go to your control panel from here
  • Log in to your account using your email and password.

Step 2: Access Domain Management

  • Locate and access the domain management section within your registrar's control panel.

Step 3: Find DNS Settings

  • Look for an option related to DNS settings, usually called "DNS Management," "Name Servers," or "Domain Name Servers.", In the end it's depend on your domain provider.

Step 4: Configure Name Servers

  • You'll need to replace the default name servers with the ones provided by your web hosting provider. These name servers typically look like ns1.example.com and ns2.example.com, you can always find them in your email, If you have the cPanel/WordPress hosting from us, use these nameservers:
  1. ns1.yottasrc.net
  2. ns2.yottasrc.net
  3. ns3.yottasrc.com
  4. ns4.yottasrc.com
  • Enter the name server information provided by your hosting provider.

Step 5: Save Changes

  • After entering the new name servers, save your changes. The process for saving changes may vary depending on your registrar, but there's typically a "Save" or "Update" button.

Step 6: Propagation

  • DNS changes may take some time to propagate across the internet. It can vary from a few minutes to 48 hours.
  • During this propagation period, your domain will start pointing to your web hosting provider's server.

Step 7: Verify Domain Configuration

  • To ensure that your domain is correctly pointing to your web hosting, you can use online DNS lookup tools or wait until the propagation is complete and visit your website using your domain name.

Conclusion: By following these steps, you've successfully pointed your domain to your web hosting. Keep in mind that DNS propagation may take a bit of time, so be patient. Once it's complete, your website will be accessible via your domain name.
