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'reupdating the name servers, 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.

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.
