Understanding Name Servers in Website Migration

As part of moving your website to a new hosting service like WPEngine, an important step involves accessing and updating your "name servers." Let's break down what this means in non-technical terms:

What are Name Servers?

  • Name servers are like address books for the Internet: They tell the Internet where to find your website. Just like how your home address directs people to your house, name servers guide internet traffic to your website's location on the web.
  • When you change hosting services, it’s like moving your website's “home:” After moving, you need to update your address book (name servers) so that when people type in your website address, they are directed to the new location (new hosting service).

Why Access to Name Servers is Important:

  • To ensure a smooth move: Just like notifying the post office of your new home address, updating your name servers ensures that your visitors reach your website at its new location without any issues.
  • Control over your website's direction: Having access to update your name servers means you have the control to point your website’s traffic to the new hosting service.

How to Access Your Name Servers:

  1. Login to your domain registrar: This is where you originally registered your website’s domain name (like GoDaddy, Bluehost, etc.).
  2. Find DNS Settings: Look for options labeled as 'DNS Settings,' 'Name Server Management,' or something similar.
  3. Be prepared to update: Once your new hosting on WPEngine is ready, you’ll replace the existing name server details with the new ones provided by WPEngine.

Remember:

  • We're here to assist: If you find this process challenging, remember that we offer additional IT support to help guide you through these steps.
  • No immediate changes: Your website will continue to function normally while you prepare for this update. The changes take effect once the new name server details are entered.

By understanding and accessing your name servers, you play a crucial part in ensuring a smooth transition of your website to its new hosting environment.
