Dns Nameserver Changes

Hello,

I had purchased a domain from another registrar(godaddy) but prefer to host with you. I did not develop any site with godaddy, it was only a domain name registration.
I understand that I can do something called changing name server, in order that I can develop the website with Webhost, without having to do a full transfer. How can I do it from my cpanel? I've just installed wordpress, and cannot go to the wordpress admin panel.


update:
Ok I have found the following link you provided to change nameservers:
http://www.webhostinghub.com/support/domain-names/registrations-and-transfers/transfer-versus-nameserver-change

I have already done that, and understand that it will take sometime for the process to take effect. However:

1. Would I still be able to begin working on the website through wordpress?
2. Are there more name servers I should change as far as emails and any other related account related to cambmix.com or is the name server change I have just done - provided is correct - enough ?

Thank you

Ayham

Hello Ayham,

Thank you for your question. Here is a link to our walk-through guide on updating your nameservers with godaddy, to point to Web Hosting Hub.

Then, if it is not already your primary domain with us, add the domain to your cPanel as an Addon, or Parked domain.

Also, if you don't want to update the nameservers at this time, you can install Wordpress on your Temp URL.

Keep in mind any DNS modification such as this can take up to 24 hours to propagate.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below, or contact live Tech Support.
