How do I cancel domain forwarding of my namesilo account
Hello everyone, I'm Sahil, and in this video guide, I'll walk you through the process of canceling domain forwarding in your NameSilo account. Follow these steps carefully to successfully cancel domain forwarding for your domain.
Step 1: Logging into Your NameSilo Account Dashboard:
The first step is to log in to your NameSilo account dashboard using your username and password. Once logged in, you'll be directed to your account's main dashboard.
Step 2: Accessing the Manage DNS Section
Within your NameSilo account dashboard, locate and click on the "Manage DNS" section. This is where you'll manage your domain's DNS settings.
Step 3: Deleting A Name and C Name Records
In the "Manage DNS" section, you'll find a list of DNS records associated with your domain. To cancel domain forwarding, you need to delete all the existing A name and C name records. This is a crucial step, but please note that removing these records alone will not immediately cancel domain forwarding.
Step 4: Adding Hosting to the Forwarded Domain
To instantly cancel domain forwarding, you need to add hosting to the domain that was previously being forwarded. As an example, let's say you've decided to use a Blogger hosting account for this purpose.
a. Obtain Hosting Account Information: If you haven't already, set up a hosting account for your domain. In this case, we're using a Blogger hosting account as an example.
b. Add A Name and C Name Records from Hosting
Within your hosting account settings, locate the A name and C name records. These are specific DNS records that associate your domain with the hosting server. Copy the A name and C name records provided by your hosting service.
c. Paste Records in NameSilo DNS Settings
Return to the NameSilo "Manage DNS" section and add the A name and C name records from your hosting account. This step is essential to establish the connection between your domain and the hosting server.
Step 5: Instant Cancellation of Domain Forwarding
By adding the hosting-related DNS records, you've effectively cancelled the domain forwarding. Now, when someone visits your domain, they will be directed to the hosting account instead of being forwarded elsewhere.
Congratulations! You've successfully cancelled domain forwarding for your NameSilo account. Keep in mind that the process involves deleting existing A name and C name records and replacing them with the hosting-related records.
I hope this step-by-step guide has been helpful to you. By following these instructions, you should be able to cancel domain forwarding in your NameSilo account with ease.
