You can confirm that the changes have been made correctly by doing a WHOIS lookup on the domain using WHOIS lookup tool. The propagation of these Nameserver changes sometimes takes 24-48 hours, and you can view propagation here.


Troubleshooting

Step 1 - If your Nameservers fail to update, please ensure that Registrar lock is disabled. Registrar lock will prevent any changes to the domain, including updating Nameservers.

On your Nameserver page, you should see the message:

3cfd446460c7d7a437f52ee17bc281514e2d7279?t=9106005165cd17b8e6644e537eef54e9

If you do not see this message, follow this guide to disable Registrar Lock. You can then re-enable Registrar lock once the Nameservers have been updated.


Step 2 - Perform a lookup on your domain using a tool like whois.com (or whois.auda.org.au for .au domains), and then check the Status field. Match the status against the WHOIS status codes table. If the domain is not in an 'ok' or 'clientUpdateProhibited' (Registrar Lock) status, contact our support team for more information.
