How to change your Namecheap Nameservers

Point your Namecheap domain to WPX with Nameservers

If your domain is registered with Namecheap, in order to point the site to your WPX server, you will need to change the Nameservers in your Namecheap account.

To point your domain to WPX, please follow our simple, six-step process;

Step 1

Firstly, you will need to log in to your Namecheap account and select the Domain List menu on your left.


Select your domain name from the list and press the Manage button, to access the domain settings.

Step 2

Once you have entered the Manage menu in Namecheap, locate the NAMESERVERS field and select the Custom DNS option from the dropdown menu. 

Step 3

If there are other Nameservers listed already, remove them and leave only two fields.

In these two fields, fill in the details for Nameserver 1 and Nameserver 2.

You can find them in the Dashboard section of your WPX hosting panel. At the bottom of this menu, under Service Details, you’ll find your WPX Nameservers;

Step 4

After you are sure that you have typed in the WPX Nameservers correctly on Namecheap, click the green check (tick) in order to save. That’s it!

Keep in mind that if there were other nameservers previously set (not pointing to our servers), the time needed for a full DNS propagation can take up to 48 hours. 

In some rare cases, it can take up to 72 hours.
