Using the Manage Domains page to make a change


One of the main pages you will be accessing for the management of your domains hosting is Manage Domains.



Under the domain name you wish to edit, click the 'DNS' link.

The following page appears:

* Please note, if the nameserver section is not listed there, it would mean the domain is not registered with DreamHost.


Erase the nameservers listed in each box and replace them with the custom name servers generated for you by Ezoic (these can be found under 'Settings' > 'Site Integration' > 'Name Servers' > 'View Instructions' in your Ezoic Dashboard). 


Click the Set these nameservers for example.com! button to save your changes.


Using the Registrations page to make a change


Any change you make to your domain registration occurs immediately, including edits to WHOIS, nameserver(s), and registrant information.


You can also edit the nameservers on the Registrations page. If your domain is listed on this page, it is registered with DreamHost and the nameservers can be edited.


The only exception is *.uk domain names. If you attempt to change the WHOIS info in the panel, you'll see this message:

Clicking the link takes you to 'secure.nominet.org.uk'. You can then change your WHOIS information there.


Click the Whois Info button located next to your domain registration (or, if you have multiple registrations, check the box under the 'Modify Whois?' column next to the domain you want to modify and then click the Modify Whois! button).


On the next page, click the Nameservers tab and select the 'Use another host's nameservers' option to change your nameservers to another host (or, you can set DreamHost's nameservers automatically by clicking the radio button for 'Use DreamHost’s nameservers').


If you set your DNS to point to another host’s nameservers instead of using DreamHost’s, the following fields appear on the Nameservers page:

In the fields provided, enter the custom name servers generated for you by Ezoic (these can be found under 'Settings' > 'Site Integration' > 'Name Servers' > 'View Instructions' in your Ezoic Dashboard).
