How to Change Google Domains Nameservers to Point Your Domain to ChemiCloud

In this Knowledge Base article, we will cover how to change Google Domains nameservers of your domain to ChemiCloud nameservers.

Why You Should Change Google Domains Nameservers

The DNS service you use for your domain can have a significant impact on the TTFB performance of your website. Using a highly scalable and available DNS service ensures high performance all around the world. All ChemiCloud plans include a premium DNS service.

Typically, domain registrars do not provide customers with a premium DNS service like ChemiCloud DNS. For this reason, we recommend switching nameservers to ours if your domain is registered with Google Domains and you are hosting your website with us.

What are my ChemiCloud Nameservers?

You can find your ChemiCloud nameservers by clicking on the Server Information icon inside the ChemiCloud dashboard.

To learn more, we published an easy guide explaining how to locate your Nameservers inside of Client Area here.

How to Change Google Domains Nameservers

Step 1: Click here to open the Google Domains page. In the top right corner of the webpage, click the Sign In button.

You will be prompted to login to your Google Account:

Step 2: After signing into your Google Account, your Google Domains page will load and you will see a list of all domains registered in your Google Domains account.

Find the domain for which you wish to manage the Nameservers and click Manage to the right of the domain listing.

Step 3: The Domain Management page will load. Look on the left side of the page and you will see a list of options.

Click DNS.

 

Step 4: Once the DNS Management page loads, look at the top of the page and you will see two options. Click “Custom Name Servers”.

Step 5: The Custom name servers page will load. Here you will have the option to enter ChemiCloud name server records.

As ChemiCloud has three name servers, be sure to click the “add another name server” button beneath the 2 nameserver fields.

The three fields should look similar to the ones below:

Once you have done this, proceed to enter the three ChemiCloud nameservers and click the Save button.

Your changes will now propagate.

Important Information About Changing Nameservers:

Nameserver changes are not instant. They require up to 24 hours to propagate globally. There are a lot of DNS servers to update with this new information, so definitely allow time for this information to propagate successfully.

Transfer Your Domain To ChemiCloud

There is no need to juggle separate providers, contacts, and services when you can have everything you need, all in one place.

If you’d like to manage your nameservers and your hosting in the same place, here at ChemiCloud, you should consider transferring your domain(s) from Google Domains to ChemiCloud.

That’s a wrap!
