Hello Jim,

Thank you for contacting us about updating your DNS Nameservers. Here is a link to our guide on updating your domain's nameservers.

If you are getting any errors or it is not working, I recommend contacting our Live Support team so they can test further.

Hi imaginate, Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you today. It's actually quite simple. You'll need to use the nameservers for the host your friends server is on. Then he'll need to add the domain as an add-on domain. Once propagation takes place you'll be able to access your site (usually takes 4 to 24 hours). Here's a link to our article on changing nameservers: Updating your domain's nameservers Here's a link on add-on domains: New domains I hope this helps! If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us. Also, did you know that with a low cost VPS plan, you can get unlimited domains hosted on one account? Learn more here. Thanks! Tim S
