Step 3

In the nameserver popup box, first tick “I have specific nameservers for my domains”

Next, you will need to enter your hosting account’s nameservers. You can find these in the confirmation email that your hosting provider sent to you when you first signed up for the account. If you don’t have this email for whatever reason, you can also find this information in your cPanel.
