How to find the nameservers in your Cpanel

When you start a blog, you have a domain name and hosting. For your website to show on the web, the web needs to know where your website files are stored so they can access them. The signposts for your site are called ‘nameservers’. Each hosting company will have its nameservers, you find these nameservers and put them into your domain name account. In this post, I show you where to find the nameservers in your Cpanel of Bluehost, Hostgator, Hostinger, and WebHost.

I always buy my domain name and hosting separately, after I buy my hosting, I find the hosting companies nameservers and update my nameservers.

Let’s get started.

Bluehost nameservers

Conclusion

As a blogger, you will change your hosting company occasionally. It could be because of price, service, downtime, or a number of reasons. The important thing is to keep your site live.

If you do decide to change hosting companies, make sure you change before your existing package expires. Find a new hosting company, set up your site with the new company and then change your nameservers. This way, your site will always be live on the web.

As you can see from the hosting companies I listed above, they all have different places for their nameservers. Some are easy to find, others are a little more difficult.

I use all the above companies for my websites and are happy to recommend them all. If you are starting your blog or are ready to renew, click on the link of each hosting company to check out their latest hosting package deals.

For Hostgator, click here. Bluehost, click here. WebHostFace, click here.
