Point an existing domain name to myhosting.com

You just need to contact your current host, or the registrar of your domain and ask them to change the name servers (DNS) of the domain to myhosting.com name servers which are:

First Name Server:
First Server Hostname: ns.myhosting.com
First Server IP Address: 168.144.229.9

Second Name Server
Second Server Hostname: ns1.myhosting.com
Second Server Net Address: 168.144.228.69

Third Name Server
Third Server Hostname: ns2.myhosting.com
Third Server Net Address: 168.144.228.70

You should continue to keep your hosting service at your present site while waiting for the domain to be transferred, as it takes 24-48 hours for a DNS transfer request to be processed. Sometimes it may be necessary to contact your old host and/or registrar by phone to get the transferred completed.

Domain is registered by Network Solutions

If your domain is already registered by Network Solutions, you will need to submit your DNS transfer request directly to Network Solutions.

  1. Browse to https://www.networksolutions.com/manage-it/index.jsp
  2. Enter Username and Password
  3. Click on the domain name you want to modify
  4. Click on Edit Contacts/Manage DNS
  5. Click on Manage Name Servers
  6. Click on No Thanks
  7. Enter name server information
    First Name Server:
    First Server Hostname: ns.myhosting.com
    First Server IP Address: 168.144.229.9
    
    Second Name Server
    Second Server Hostname: ns1.myhosting.com
    Second Server Net Address: 168.144.228.69
    
    Third Name Server
    Third Server Hostname: ns2.myhosting.com
    Third Server Net Address: 168.144.228.70
  8. Click Continue

Domain has a foreign extension

To transfer your domain to myhosting.com if it has a foreign domain extension, you must provide the following information to your registrar:

First Name Server:
First Server Hostname: ns.myhosting.com
First Server IP Address: 168.144.229.9

Second Name Server
Second Server Hostname: ns1.myhosting.com
Second Server Net Address: 168.144.228.69

Third Name Server
Third Server Hostname: ns2.myhosting.com
Third Server Net Address: 168.144.228.70

NOTE: Your local NIC may require that your DNS be created prior to approval - notify us at support@myhosting.com and we will create the DNS entry that will allow you to request the domain transfer and delegation.

Current Registration Provider is Unknown

If you do not know where your domain is registered, you should do a WHOIS check to find out who the registrar of your domain is. Browse to http://www.internic.net/whois.html and enter your domain name in the search box. This will give you the registrar, and name servers. Enter the registrar's address into the browser to visit that registrar to make the changes to the name servers to transfer your domain to myhosting.com.
