I recently transferred a domain from another hosting company to my main domain hosted by your company. I added it as an add on domain and cannot figure out how to change the addon domain's nameserver to point to inmotion hosting so I can have access to my blog.

Hello Jnastase,

You will need to determine your domain registrar for your add-on domain name (the entity with whom you registered the domain). Then you will need to contact them (or use their interface) to change their name servers to point to ours.

Remember that this change can require 4-24 hours of what is known as propagation time. Interfaces for name server changes differ from domain registrar to domain registrar, so you may need to consult with the support of your registrar if you are not familiar with how to change their name server settings.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
