Domain Registry Transfer to HostMonster

Problem:

What if I do not want to or cannot transfer my registration to HostMonster?

Solution:

You don't have to transfer your domain registration to us in order to host with us.

You can log into your registrar and just change the DNS/Name Servers to HostMonster and leave the registration where it is.

The name servers are provided below:

  • Primary Server Hostname: NS1.HostMonster.com
  • Secondary Server Hostname: NS2.HostMonster.com

Once you have made this change it will take 24-48 hours for propagation and your site will be live with us.
