This article shows how to migrate Nameservers from Amazon Route 53 to StackPath DNS so that you can use StackPath as your DNS provider. Please ensure you have already purchased StackPath DNS services before following this article.
Adding StackPath Name Servers
Once you have duplicated your existing DNS records on the StackPath portal, it is now time to point your domain registrar to the StackPath Name Servers.
When you're ready to have traffic directed to StackPath DNS servers, please follow these steps.
- Log in to your AWS account
- On your product list next to Domains, click the plus sign button to expand the list
- Next, to the domain you want to manage, under the Action section, click on the DNS button
- At the bottom of the Records section, under Name Servers, click Change and confirm
- Enter/ paste the new Name Server entries
- Click Save
Please note that it could take up to 24 hours for your Name Servers to globally propagate. We recommend a third-party tool to check your DNS status: What's my DNS?
Enter your domain into the search box and change the record type to NS. Press Search and verify that all locations list the StackPath name servers you filed with your registrar. If they do, your site is all set. Now any changes you make in the StackPath portal will be reflective on your live site.
