Setting up with Nameservers

Setting up with Nameservers

Step 1:  Verifying DNS records

Polaris automatically adds your DNS records based on our analysis of your website. Please verify them and add any records (using the 'Add Record' button) that you deem are missing from the list:

Once you are done, click the Next button.

Step 2: Verifying Nameservers

In this step, you will be transferring your name servers from your domain registrars to Polaris. Some examples of domain registrars include GoDaddy, and Namecheap. 

As per the instructions on the setup wizard, you will first have to login to your registrar website and remove the mentioned nameservers. If you have difficulties, please refer to the registrar's FAQ site. Once that is done, add the ones shown on screen, copying and pasting the information would do.

Save the changes made, and the rest of the process would be automated. When the changes have been completed and the nameservers have been transferred to Polaris, you will receive a confirmation email. You can also use the re-check button on the wizard to check if the transfer has been done successfully.

When you are done with this step (you do not need to wait for the confirmation email) please click the Next button.

Step 3: Additional Steps

You are done with the initial setup for your website. There are now several other settings you can now configure. Please refer to the following articles on how to configure them:
  1. SSL Configuration
  2. API Endpoints
  3. DoS Protection
  4. Geo Access
