Domain Name Delegation

Pointing your domain name to your website!

Note: You only need to do this if your domain does not point to your hosting – when purchasing a domain and hosting from the same provider often your domain will already be pointing to your website.

If your domain does not point to your website you will need to change the Name Servers so that it does.

Find out from your hosting provider what their Name Server addresses are. These are often in the format of:


Log into your domain provider and update the Name Servers with your hosts Name Servers.

Please note – we’re assuming you don’t have email already set up with this domain – if so best to talk to your host prior to changing your Name Servers to work out the best solution.

Once your domain points to your website you can install WordPress.
