How to Update Windows VPS Nameservers

Posted by on August 05 2014 01:04 PM

If, for any reason, you experience issues with outbound connectivity from your Windows VPS server because your server cannot connect to our internal caching name servers (which are set on your VPS by default), you can use this temporary workaround to utilize Google's public DNS servers for outbound traffic from your VPS. 

  • Connect to your server via Remote Desktop.  Instructions for RDP can be found here. Credentials can be found within the Hostmysite customer control panel under the Server Management tab.
  • Open Network Connections by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Control Panel.

Control Panel

  • In the search box, type adapter, and then, under Network and Sharing Center, click "View network connections".


  • Right-click the connection that you want to change (there should only be one available to you - "venet0"), and then click Properties. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
