If you’re migrating your website to InMotion Hosting from another host, one of the last steps you’ll take is pointing your domain’s nameservers to InMotion Hosting’s nameservers. This will direct your domain’s traffic here, and away from your previous web host. If you are unsure exactly what nameservers are, be sure to check out our informative article on the subject.
This article is a guide on how to change your nameservers.
Please be aware that changes to your nameservers can take up to 24 hours before they take affect, so changes you make will not be immediate.

However, if you have registered the domain name with another registrar you will need to change the nameservers with that company. Please see the following links for the major registrars below:
Did you know you could have your own nameserver with your domain? With a VPS or dedicated server you can.
