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
ns.inmotionhosting.com74.124.210.242
ns2.inmotionhosting.com70.39.150.2

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

Reseller NameServer NameIP Address
ns1.servconfig.com216.194.168.112
ns2.servconfig.com70.39.146.236

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 on Point your domain
  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! 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 away from our server to another server and you want to keep the nameservers pointing to ours (For example, Weebly, Blogger, Squarespace etc.), you can edit the DNS zone A record. Please see our article on How do I make custom DNS records?

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,
John-Paul
