1. Log into your domain registrar account with your assigned user name and password.

2. Locate or ask your web hosting provider for their "Name Server Settings" They will then inform you with a name that looks something like this. ns1.yourhostingprovider.com & ns2.yourhostingprovider.com. Most web hosts have several name server settings for redundancy and smooth operation.

3. Once you have confirmed your web hosts "Name Server Setting" You will need to enter the name into your domain name delegation section. If you are unsure where to find your domain delegation settings. Ask your domain name provider. Or upon request your domain registrar support team can usually do this for you.

4. Upon completion your domain will now be pointed and delegated to your web hosting provider.

Note when changing your domain name delegation setting this can sometimes take up to 24 hours to propagate and confirm it is working.
