Content: Hostway DNS Name Servers: Hostway DNS Servers Q&A
Question from Jack in New York City about Hostway: We'd like to buy web hosting a month or so from now with Hostway but want to transfer our domain name to Hostway right away. I need the name servers for the Hostway DNS in order to do this. Can you help me out with this information since I can't find it easy?
Our Hostway.com nameservers answer: Hostway DNS NameServers are available for the early transfer of your website to Hostway. Just following these quick domain name DNS registration with Hostway steps as found here in our Hostway DNS guide and you will have your new website up and running at Hostway.com or Hostway.ca whenever you are ready to purchase your hosting plan. At your current domain registrar (e.g. Verio, Network Solutions, Dotster, etc) you will have a space for DNS - domain name servers - which identify where your website will be physically located. It will likely have the domain registrar as the default information, so you will need to change that and enter the Hostway DNS information in those input fields instead. Consult the review sheet or guide your registrar offers if you need help with this procedure. The Hostway DNS Servers have two lines you will need to enter. The following Hostway.com DNS information must be entered in order to get your domain name to properly resolve to the Hostway DNS Name Servers. Failure to enter this information exactly will result in a failure to resolve to the Hostway DNS. So be sure to copy and paste this important Hostway name server entries exactly.
Hostway DNS 1: a.dns.hostway.net
Hostway DNS 2: b.dns.hostway.net
