I have an existing domain name and I can't remember where it is registered and an existing site. I do not care about this site and I plan on creating a new site. How do I link this existing domain to my Inmotion account?

Hello Wolf,

Thank you for your question about linking an existing site to InMotion Hosting. I looked up the WHOIS record for your domain, and noticed it was registered with Wild West Domains, and the nameservers are pointed to Mediatemple .

You will have to point to InMotion Hosting's Nameservers to have your site resolve to us. This must be done where you registered the domain, since it is not in our control.

Be sure to allow up to 24 hours for propagation.

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

Thank you,
