How to Set Up Nameservers for Your WordPress Site

Mapping Your Domain to WordPress

If you register a domain with WordPress.com, we point it to your WordPress.com blog. But you do not have to do the procedure that way – you can make your domain point to any site you want. If you’re moving your site to another host, we suggest you transfer your domain to the new host so that both your domain and your hosting manages are in the same place, For instance, if you just registered your domain, you would not be able to transfer it for 60 days. Also, some hosts just don’t support domain registration transfers.

“DNS Servers” are past our extension here. What you have to see, is that we have to argue our GoDaddy domain name (URL) to our MDD Hosting Word Press installation. DNS acts similar to the mail station. It keeps up an address for your site. Essentially, we are saying the web that when a user clicks on our “GoDaddy URL” that it wants to guide the guest to our Word Press site at MDD Hosting. Try not to stress; this is less demanding than it sounds.

#1 Discover the ‘DNS Server Addresses’

For our situation, we can create the DNS list here. If you utilized an alternate host at that point scan your host’s site for “DNS” and you will likely discover the page you are searching for. On the off chance that you chose to manufacture your site utilizing GoDaddy (where we purchased our space name) at that point GoDaddy would have provoked you for your URL name and would have set the DNS passages naturally. If so, you can avoid this progression and proceed onward the following one.
