Once you have set up your ISP account with visp.net, you will need to point your domain name to our DNS servers for management.
This must be done at the website of the domain registrar or via the party you registered your domain name through. Most domain registration outlets will have a Control Panel or Account Manager you can log in to, allowing you to make the DNS change. Once you are logged in to the control panel/account manager of your domain registrar, you will need to locate the Name Servers (or DNS Settings) section of your account settings. Some sites may ask if you want to utilize "Managed DNS" services -- if you are prompted for this, you will want to opt for the "Self-managed" or "Third Party" DNS setting. Your domain registrar should ask you for two or more DNS servers, or nameserver addresses. You generally only have to enter the nameserver address names in the provided fields; however, some sites do request the IP address as well. The settings that should be entered are:
- Primary (first) DNS server: NS.VISP.NET (IP address 22.214.171.124)
- Secondary (second) DNS server: NS2.VISP.NET (IP address 126.96.36.199)
Any additional DNS server address fields can be left blank. You will now want to click on the "Next" or "Save" button provided by your domain registrar, and if prompted, confirm the changes (either on-screen or via email). That's it! Changes to DNS settings can take from 48 to 72 hours to propagate, although most happen within the first 24 hours. If you need assistance making these changes, or have any questions regarding domain selection or how to change your DNS, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call our office at (541) 955-6900 - option 4 between 9:00 AM and 6:00 PM Pacific time, Monday through Friday.
