Dns servers Smartyhost to dreamhost

| January 2, 2016

Not all Hosting servers and admin panels  for domain names  management are very user-friendly. I always forget where the “dns servers setting” bit is in smarty host. [updated Feb 2016]


So when you want to point  you domain name that your bought with smartyhost  to a US hosting account , what do you do  ?

You will need to point  your smarty host domain in the admin panel  to point to dream host (my hosting server ) or then bluehost where I also have blogs hosted . So here is some useful info below.


Dreamhost DNS Servers Address




You can use this Dns  settings above  for your new domain that you bought at smarty host (australian domain name provider) to point to your US hosting serving provider ( Dreamhost ) where  you are hosting your wordpress blog or website

IN Smarty host  Admin panel –  You  have  to go to domain tools,  choose the domain and insert the above  dreamhost servers address in  those fields as  the below pic illustrates  and remove the old dns servers already  there

If you are using bluehost then you will input the Bluehost  servers addresses over there ( new name server) which are

ns1.bluehost.com –
ns2.bluehost.com –

Go here  to get  the instructions in detail from smarty host

If you are  pointing it to Dreamhost use the above  dreamhost name servers instead

Alternatively You Could also get a Domain name and Hosting both with dreamhost or bluehost and dont have to go with the domain  pointing problems as such

    I seldom leave remarks, but i didd some searching and wound up here Dns servers Smartyhost to dreamhost | Digital Grog | Technology Blog Australia.

    And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you tend
    not to mind. Is it only me or does it look as if like some of the responses look as
    if they are left by brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are
    writing at additional sites, I’d like to follow everything fresh you have to post.
    Could yoou list of every one of your communal sites like your
    Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
