InMotion Hosting Support Center

You have access to change the nameservers of any domains registered with InMotion Hosting. You can make any changes to the nameservers in your Account Management Panel (or AMP).

Since changing nameservers is a DNS change, it can take up to 24 hours to propagate.

InMotion Hosting Nameservers for Shared/VPS/Dedicated:

NameServer NameIP Address

If you have a Reseller account, use the following Nameservers:

Reseller NameServer NameIP Address

Changing your Nameservers in AMP

  1. Login to AMP.
  2. On the main menu, roll your mouse over Domains and click Manage Domains.
  3. Next, select the domain that you want to make the nameserver change for.
  4. Click the Point your domain link.
    Updating Domain DNS
  5. Finally, enter your primary and secondary nameservers. Remember that you will always need to enter two nameservers. Once you are done, click Submit.

    You will then see a message stating "Your request has been completed"

Since changing nameservers is a DNS change, it can take up to 24 hours to propagate.

Important! Important! If you are only pointing your domain to your server IP address, you will need to do this where the nameservers point. If you are pointing your domain from our server to another server and wish to keep the nameservers pointing to ours you can edit the DNS zone A record. This is common for those with accounts at Weebly, Blogger, Squarespace etc.

I'm trying to change my nameservers to point to cloudflare. I can't seem to find where to do that. In the AMP, it says I don't have any domains to manage.

Please point me in the right direction.

Hello Tony,

Thank you for contacting us. If you purchased the domain under a different email address, it's possibly in a separate account. You would have to login to with that email address to manage the domain. Live Support would be happy to help you look your account up as well.

If you are not sure where you purchased your domain, the Registrar is listed in the WHOIS information.

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

Thank you,

When trying to change nameserver, I got this error message:

There was a problem with processing your request. Ensure that the nameservers you are trying to set have been created. If they have not, you can go here to do so.

How can I change it? Thanks.

Hello Tony,

Thank you for contacting us. Unfortunately, this is a known bug in AMP currently. Please submit a ticket to Live Support with the nameservers included. They will make the change for you, and email you back to confirm.

Thank you for your patience, while our development team works on a solution.

I am trying to change the domain name from all lower case to upper case letters.  I found what I think are the correct instructions, but it is telling me to remove my "cancel my domain privacy", make the changes then add domain privacy back.  Will the system charge me again for doing this change?  Maybe I am misunderstanding what I need to do.  Thanks for your help!

Hello LEE,

Thank you for contacting us. I recommend contacting our Billing department, if you want to change your bill item to upper case.

But, keep in mind domains/URL's are not case sensitive, meaning it will not change the way it displays in a browser.

Thank you,

Thank you for contacting us. Yes, it is possible, but is not a common setup. It can create issues, since visitors may be resolving to different servers.

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

I followed the vanity nameservers article, and created two A records for my domain

Then I followed this guide, changing the nameservers to the newly created and

I received error "There was a problem with processing your request. Ensure that the nameservers you are trying to set have been created."

Is it a bug in AMP as mentioned in previous comment, or did I do something wrong?

Hello Woolong,

This may have been due to the AMP not able to ping the nameservers at the time when you were making the change. I would suggest to try again and if it still fails, please contact our support department as they can manually make this change.

Best Regards,
TJ Edens
