I need to Change my Name Servers for my KARTHOST Registered Domain Name

If your domain name is registered with KartHost (meaning you paid KartHost for registration and/or renewals) here is how to change your name servers.

NOTE: If you need to know the Nameservers for KartHost Services please review this KartHost Knowledgebase Article for the proper Name Servers: What are my Name Servers for my web site at KartHost?

IMPORTANT: By changing Name Servers KartHost to non-KartHost name servers, KartHost will no longer be handling DNS for your web site and email. Contact your new DNS provider for those details and make sure your DNS is set prior to the change of the name servers.

TIP: Because of Internet Propagation changing your name servers can take just a few minutes to propagate the internet or can take as long as 24 to 48 hours. In most cases the internet propagation will take effect within a few hours. But it’s no guarantee. So be patient. If its been more than 36 to 48 hours Open a KartHost Domain Name Support ticket.

Step 1)      We will assume you are logged into your KartHost Customer Center account. If you are not logged in or need to know how to login please see this KartHost Knowledgebase Article Introduction to the KartHost Customer Center - Video Click on the black Navigation Bar click on Domains as seen below.

Step 5)      Now on the Nameservers page you will want to remove ALL existing name servers, and then replace with the new name servers. You will need to get your name servers from the party that will be handling your DNS for your domain. NOTE: If you need to add more than 5 Nameservers go ahead and add your first 5 and then open up a Domain Name Support Ticket and provide the additional name servers that need to be added in that ticket.

After the Change Tip 1)      The next thing you will want to do, is clear the caching for your local computer (or router). They will more than likely have cached the OLD IP address. You will want to review this KartHost Knowledgebase article “Clearing Your IP Cache on your local Computer

After the Change Tip 2)      Also you will want to check the change using an offsite Proxy Server. Roy at KartHost Recommends using anonymous.org, it’s a proxy in Germany. So it’s like actually being on a computer in German surfing the web. This helps confirm the name server change has taken affect across the globe. Just click on English to use the English version of Anonymous or Deutsch to use the German version of Anonymous.org.

Check to see if your web site is starting to propagated the internet by using Anonymouse Proxy Server
