How do domain names work?
Domain names are registered with a domain registrar. You pay the registrar a yearly fee to keep the domain active. Your registrar then points the domain name to a set of nameservers, and those nameservers in essence point your domain name to your hosting company.
You can register your domain with whichever domain registrar you would like, and you can still host that website with Web Hosting Hub as long as you ask your registrar to point your domain's nameservers to Web Hosting Hub's nameservers.
If your task is to point your domain to our servers, you will need to make sure your nameservers are updated accordingly. Transferring registrars is not a requirement to host your website with us, however some users like to do this to keep everything under one company.
Do I need to make any changes with my domain?
If you registered your domain name through Web Hosting Hub, then your domain name should already be pointing to the correct nameservers. If you registered your domain name through another register and you wish to now host that domain name with us, you'll need to update your domain's nameservers.
How do I change my nameservers?
You can change nameservers by logging into your current registrar account and replacing the existing nameservers with your host nameserver, in our case:
Once the nameservers are changed, it can take 4 to 24 hours for the changes to take full effect. Please note, you probably won't need the IP addresses of the Nameservers, but we have provided this information as a convenience in case your registrar requires it.
Do I need to transfer my domain?
You only need a registrar transfer if you wish to have Web Hosting Hub be the company that manages your domain(s). We would bill you for the domain each year and also have access to your DNS settings in case you needed any modifications to be made. Registrar transfers cost $14.99, and they extend the current expiration date for one year automatically.
