- Register a Domain:
Before any domain name will work, it must be registered. You can register a domain with us, if you do not already have the domain registered. For more help with registering a new domain, please see: How do I register a new domain name?
- Point your Domain to Web Hosting Hub:
After your domain name has been registered, it must be pointing to our servers. If the domain was registered through us it will be automatically be pointed to the correct nameservers and you can skip this step.
If your domain name currently is set to look at a different hosting company and is registered at a different registrar, then you will need to contact your registrar or log into their domain maintenance interface with the domain registrar and modify your nameservers. When you modify the nameservers it will point your domain to your hosting account with us. Please allow up to 24 hours for nameserver changes to fully take effect. The nameservers you will need to enter at the registrar are:
For more help with Updating your nameservers, please see, DNS and Nameserver Changes. Most registrars will only need the Nameservers (not the IP as well) but we have provided this information for you in case your registrar does need to have that.
- Add the Domain to your cPanel:
If you only have one domain name, then it is your main domain name. Any other domains you wish to host on your account can be added as Parked Domains or Addon Domains. For more information on the difference between Parked and Addon Domains, and how to configure them, please see, Addon, Parked, and Subdomains. Please keep in mind that if you decide you want to cancel a domain and not renew it, removing it from you cPanel does NOT cancel the renewal of the domain registration. To cancel a domain registration, please see our article on how to cancel a domain registration.
