Pointing your domain to EPhost.

Pointing to EPhost, Inc. Name Servers

First, some distinctions should be made between "transferring a domain" and "pointing a domain."

Transferring a domain: You want to change the provider of your domain name registration. By transferring your domain to EPhost, we now become your domain name registration provider and you will renew your domain through us. Many customers do this to make management of their domain name registration easier.

Pointing your domain to EPhost: You are telling your existing domain name registrar (e.g. GoDaddy) where your website is hosted (EPhost). Technically speaking this is called changing your Name Server records.

Generally speaking, your domain MUST be pointed to EPhost to function properly. Contact your domain name registration provider directly and ask them to change your domain's name server records to the ones below.

 

EPhost Windows Plans:

All Windows Hosting Plans. 

Nameserver 1 : NS1.EPHOST.COM

Nameserver 2 : NS2.EPHOST.COM

 

EPhost Linux Plans

Name Servers are specific to the shared server you are using. Please see your account Welcome Email for details or contact support if you no longer have a copy of it. 

Nameserver 1 : NS1.SERVER-ID.EPHOST.COM

Nameserver 2 : NS2.SERVER-ID.EPHOST.COM

 * Replace "SERVER-ID" with the ID of the server you are using. e.g. EP121, EP167, EP168

 

Important Note:

If you are updating your domain name to use EPhost name servers, and you have existing email accounts associated with that domain, you will need to create new corresponding email accounts in your hosting account here before updating name servers. Otherwise, if this step is skipped, loss of email will result. If you need help setting up the new email accounts, please contact support@ephost.com and our support staff will assist you. In this case, please make sure you do not make this change until you have first setup your email accounts (if applicable).
