My registrar (register.com) has 4 DNS values. How do I change them to InMotion with only 2 values?

Hello Stevemmi,

Different hosts have different numbers of name servers, but they all serve the same purpose. In other words, if you're transferring your domain over and you're<a href="http://www.inmotionhosting.com/support/domain-names/dns-nameserver-changes/updating-your-domains-nameservers" target="new">updating the name servers</a>, then you simply need to match what the host is using. For example:

Your old host's name servers:
ns.nameserver1.com
ns.nameserver2.com
ns.nameserver3.com
ns.nameserver4.com

When you transfer, you only need to update to the two name servers for InMotion Hosting, as per below:

ns.inmotionhosting.com
ns2.inmotionhosting.com

If you have any further questions, please leave a comment with more details and and we will be happy to review the issue for you.

Or please leave a comment or note of thanks so that we know your issue is resolved or ongoing.

As it turns out, when you update 2 of the 4 name servers on register.com (leaving the other 2 blank), register.com automatically deletes the extra name servers.
