How do I set my domain to use Namecheap's default DNS servers?

If you would like to change the DNS settings back to default ones in order to be able to set up Email/Domain Redirect/Host records, follow the instructions given below:

1. Sign in to your Namecheap account (Sign In option is available in the top hat of the page).

2. Select Domain List from the left side menu and click on Manage button next to your domain:

3. Find Nameservers section and choose Namecheap Default from the drop-down menu. Save changes using the corresponding icon:

Once settings are changed, these changes are not accepted instantly all over the world. It may take up to 24 hours (in rare cases more) for local ISPs to update their DNS cache, so that everyone can see your website.

That's it!
