123 Reg Transfer


#1

Hi everyone,

I just bought a domain name on 123 Reg but I’m not sure how to transfer it to the existing hosting plan I have at Dreamhost, as that’s where I want to host my website.

Would anybody be able to talk me through this?

I’d really appreciate any help!

Many thanks,

Andrew

First thing you can do is set the nameservers for the domain to

ns1.dreamhost.com
ns2.dreamhost.com
ns3.dreamhost.com

You would log into 123 reg to do this. Remember, the change has to propagate over the entire internet and won’t be seen immediately, there is a delay.

Second thing you can do eventually is transfer the registration to dreamhost, see: http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Transfer_your_domain_registration_to_us
