Using Liquid Web’s Nameservers

When setting up your new website with Liquid Web it’s often beneficial to use our DNS servers. If you’ve purchased your domain through a 3rd party registrar then we are not able to assist with DNS issues. By using our DNS servers this will allow our Support Team to provide DNS assistance for the domain.

Setting your domain to use Liquid Web nameservers

If you bought your domain through Liquid Web then you are already using our DNS servers by default. So you should be all set.

If you bought your domain at a 3rd party registrar (Namecheap, Godaddy, etc) then you can follow these steps to use our DNS servers.

  1. Login to your account at your registrar. (E.g.: enom.com, namecheap.com, etc)
  2. Navigate the registrar’s interface to find the domains DNS settings.
  3. Adjust the domains name servers to use:

    ns.liquidweb.com
    ns1.liquidweb.com

Once the changes are complete, allow up to 48 hours for changes to take effect.

Additionally, when making this change you should also ensure you add the domain to your Liquid Web accounts DNS management. The domain will only load after creating the domains DNS zone and setting the domain to use our name servers. For more information on creating a DNS zone in your Liquid Web account please see: Adding your domain to Liquid Web’s Name Servers
