Once I point the nameservers to my new website, how will I know when the change has occurred?

Thanks for the question! Unfortunately, there's no specific time when the change occurs. It depends on the update occurring on the internet. This period of time -typically up to 24 hours - is known as DNS propagation. We do have a tool that you can use called the visual domain routing tool. You would see the name servers for InMotion assigned when the change is complete.

I hope that helps to answer your question! Please let us know if you have any further questions or comments.
