A Small Orange Getting Started Guide

I purchased a web hosting account. What do I do now?

Step 1: Your Domain/Setting Nameservers

The first step is to make sure you have your domain and your DNS settings correct. This is crucial; when someone goes to your domain name it needs to know where to direct the site to show it’s content, files, pictures, etc.-- whatever you will put on your site.

Did you buy your domain name through A Small Orange?

If so, then we have taken care of this step for you.

Did you buy your domain name from somewhere else?

If you bought your domain name from another registrar like Godaddy or NameCheap.com, you’ll need to change your nameservers. The nameservers need to be changed to “NS1.ASMALLORANGE.COM” and “NS2.ASMALLORANGE.COM”

More detailed instructions regarding how to change your nameservers can be found here.
