Your DNS (Domain Name System) server is where you bought your website URL. In order to take your FareHarbor Site live, we will need access to your DNS settings to point your URL at our servers.
Sometimes your DNS server will be separate from your website hosting service. If you are unsure where your DNS server is, follow the steps below for how to find it.
How to find your DNS server
If you can’t remember where you bought your URL, you can use Who Is to track down that information.
- Navigate to https://who.is/
- Type your URL into the search box at the top of the page
- On the results page, scroll down to the first section titled “Registrar Info” and look for the Referral URL. This is your DNS server.

Once you’ve confirmed your DNS server and login info, send it along to your FareHarbor Account Manager and we will take care of updating your website URL to point to your new website.
Note: Although this process usually takes less than 24 hours, in some cases it may take up to 72 hours before your site is completely updated.
