The nameserver depends on your package by the looks of it. Full details here.

Hi aenweazu and cornel2ie,

You need to log in to your domain registrar (where you registered your domain name) to change your domain's nameservers.

Please let me know how you get on. All the best!

Hi aenweazu & cornel2ie,

Domain name management can be a though job if you're new to it. First it might help if I explain some basics about domains to you. Domains are like aliasses. It's a shortcut for people to visit your site. Behind your site sits a webserver which has an unique address called an IP address. This is at the moment formatted similar to 108.171.191.31 (this particular IP represents the Affilorama server). Plans are to roll out a new version of this system with a lot more digits. So that's not easy for your visitors to remember. So how does your computer know that if you type in www.affilorama.com it should actually refer to the server which is known to the world by it's IP 108.171.191.31? It's called Domain Name System (DNS). The system works with servers called Name Servers (NS). These are basically servers who get a request (every provider has at least one of them) and lookup which IP address belongs to the domain. These servers all over the globe work together to make this happen.

So now you know some basics behind it. But now you want to actually link your domain to a name server, in this case Affilotheme's nameservers. It depends on your host how it actually works but if you have GoDaddy it's fairly simple. Follow the steps in this help guide: http://support.godaddy.com/help/article ... main-names. Just make sure your click on "Setting Nameservers for a Domain Name Registered with Us" and not one of the other ones.

If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask them!

Regards,

Edwin
