Support » Installing WordPress » WordPress Installation, Dreamhost and 123-reg

  • Resolved deepa1234


    I’m new to all this website stuff. I got domain names from 123-reg and hosting from dreamhost, and would like to create a website using WordPress.

    I’ve changed the nameservers at 123-reg to,,, however it comes with an error

    “Setting nameservers to , and
    Please wait…
    Nameservers for were not changed to , and
    Error text: Registry error, domain’s nameservers not updated [Required parameter missing domain:empty non-extended is not allowed value ]
If you are attempting to modify nameservers for an .eu domain, we are currently looking into this issue.
please try again later.”

    But when I log into 123-reg it says that the nameserves are changed to dreamhost. So I’m entirely sure if I’ve done this correctly??

    I’ve installed wordpress to my website using one-click install at dreamhost, but haven’t received any login details from wordpress. When I click on the link ( dreamhost sent me, after wordpress was sucessfully installed it directs me it takes me to 123-reg website.

    Please help!! Do I just have to wait 48 hours for all these things to become active? Have I missed something out??

  • The nameservers should be:

    and try to install WordPress manually (by uploading files on ur FTP) if possible πŸ™‚

    Thanks – yes will wait 24 hours and see what happens

    ashish960, please don’t ask for people’s login credentials here: it would be an extremely poor security practice for anyone to give full access to a stranger like that. Your intention may be to help, but that’s not always the case, and it’s not allowed on these forums.

    Usually it only takes 15 mins… πŸ™‚

    and yupp… in ur 123reg Admin Panel, make sure to delete all records and re-enter that records (Dreamhost NSs)…… πŸ™‚

    Hi deepa1234,

    I work on behalf of 123-reg.

    Can you confirm if the issue has now been resolved? If not, email me your domain name and I will have a look into it for you.


    The issue has been resolved. And I would never give my details to a stranger in a forum like this.

    Just to let anyone who has a similar query in the future – never give out your domain name, domain hosting or web hosting details to a stranger.

    When you first set this up, the DNS propagation can take some time. Just wait 24 hours and be patient – which is what I should have done before posting on this forum.

    As two members have already asked for my details.
