Making DNS changes at Enom.com

If you have purchased your domain name through Enom, InMotion Hosting still fully supports it. Domain names registered at Enom will need to point to our nameservers in order to function. This change will need to be done within your Enom account. The guide below demonstrates how to change your nameservers within the Enom account manager tool.

Changing the nameservers at Enom

  1. Visit http://enom.com and click on the Login link in the upper right corner of the screen. This will bring up the login box. Enter your username and password and then click the Login button.

  2. This opens to your main page for your account. Look for the Domains category and click on the Registered link.

  3. You are now taken to the domain settings page. You will see a list of settings under the domain name. Find and click on the DNS Server Settings link.

  4. This next page is the Edit DNS Server page. To point your domain to InMotion’s nameservers, first click on the Custom radio button. This will present you with a blank area to enter nameservers. Enter the following nameservers:

    Name Server 1: NS1.INMOTIONHOSTING.COM
    Name Server 2: NS2.INMOTIONHOSTING.COM
  5. Once you have entered the nameserver names, click on the Save button in the lower right corner.
  6. After clicking the Save button you will get a propagation notice popup. This lets you know that it will take up to 24 hours for the change to take place across the web. Simply click OK to continue.

After you have changed your nameservers a success message will appear on the Edit DNS Servers page. This lets you know that your change is now in progress and your domain should soon display content from your InMotion server.

Thoughts on “Making DNS changes at Enom.com

  • In all of your other articles on DNS, you use the follwoing domains for your DNS servers:

    ns.inmotionhosting.com
    ns2.inmotionhosting.com

    Is it NS or NS1?

    • NS and NS1 are considered the same thing. To make it easier to understand we have changed our documentation to use NS1, but you can use either.
