Adding a domain that I already own


#1

Sorry if this is basic knowledge but I’ve only had hosting experience with one place and don’t know much about this stuff. Let’s say I have a domain registered with HostMonster and I want to host it with DreamHost but I want to continue paying for it separately with HostMonster, how can I do that?

P.S. - The same goes for a GoDaddy.com domain.

Just log into your account with the registrar and change the nameservers to:

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

You’d still need to add your domain through the panel here, but that’s just for the hosting… not the registration.

Thank you. I have one other question though. If I install wordpress into that domain, how long will it take Wordpress to show up?

It’ll show up as soon as DNS propagation is complete (couple hours).
