The first step for updating your DNS begins with your domain name provider. If you don’t remember who that is, don’t worry! We’ve got some a couple of tips for finding your DNS provider.

First, check your billing records. Your domain host is usually who you bought your domain from. Searching your email archives for billing records related to registering or transferring your domain may help you find it easily.

If your billing records search turned up no results, use a domain search tool, such as InterNIC

To use this tool, navigate to https://www.internic.net/whois.html

  • Type your domain name in the Whois search box. 
  • Select the Domain option, and then click Submit. 
  • On the Whois Search Results page, locate the first Name Server entry. 
  • Copy the name server (NS) information that appears after the colon (:), and then paste it into the Searchbox at the top of the page. Select Nameserver, and then click Submit.
  • On the Whois search results page, locate the Registrar entry. This entry lists your DNS hosting provider, the DNS provider who owns the name server for your domain.
