I transferred my domain from wordpress.com, and got an email saying the transfer was completed. I was told I have to update my DNS so that the domain points to inmotion instead of wordpress.com. I'm not sure how to do this. Help. I tried updating nameserver on wordpress.com, but my domain does not show up in their list (probably because I transferred it?)

Hello jcallahan,

Thank you for your question. If the domain registration was transferred to us already, then you can update your nameservers (DNS) in AMP.

If it is not registered with us, or you are not sure where it is registered, a Whois lookup provides detailed information on the domain, such as: the current nameservers, registrar, and admin contact details.

You must then update your nameservers with your registrar.

Keep in mind any DNS modification, such as nameserver changes can take up to 24 hours to propagate.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,

-John-Paul
