How to use the BHost nameservers

To read an in-depth article about DNS and how it works, read our Introduction to DNS.

1. Set your domain’s nameservers to dns01.bhost.net and dns02.bhost.net – to do this you’ll need to contact the domain registrar where you registered the domain.

2. Login to your BHost account at www.BHost.net/login

3. From the Services menu, select Manage DNS:

manage_dns_menu

4. You can now add the domain name to our DNS system. In this case we’ll add BHostDemo.com:

dns_add_domain

5. You’ll get confirmation the domain is added, and you can then click Manage to manage the DNS records for that particular domain:

dns_added

6. You can then add various types of DNS records (see our longer guide for an explanation of what the various records are for):

dns_records

7. If, for example, you wanted www.BHostDemo.com to point to the IP address 176.126.240.240 you could add an A record as follows:

dns_add_a_record

(only type in www rather than the whole domain)

8. Once added, you’ll get confirmation:

dns_a_record_added
