This Knowledge Base article will cover how to change NameCheap nameservers of your domain to ChemiCloud nameservers.
Why You Should Change NameCheap Nameservers
The DNS service you use for your domain can significantly impact the TTFB performance of your website. Using a highly scalable and available DNS service ensures high performance worldwide. 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 NameCheap 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.
