My website is hosted at inmotion hosting but I bought my domain name at OVH.com/fr. How can I link the OVH domain name with InMotion?

Hello and thanks for contacting us. You can change the nameservers or A record to our InMotion Hosting server. Alternatively, you can transfer the domain ownership to us. Please see our article on comparing the two.

Thanks for your answer. I changed the nameservers from ovh's default nameservers to inmotion's nameservers. 

Now, my domain does point to my website, but as soon as my website shows up, the url (in the address bar) changes from my domain name to biz###.inmotionhosting.com/myusername. How can I prevent this from happening?

There's likely a redirect somewhere doing this. I recommend check your .htaccess file and website configuration. Contact Live Support if you need further assistance.
