MANAGE YOUR DOMAIN HOSTING
do I modify an existing domain name to work with ProHosting?
- To make your
domain hosting work with your ProHosting account, you
need to make sure that your domain name points to the
following name servers:
Primary Server Hostname: NS1.DNS-SOLUTIONS.NET
Primary Server Address: 188.8.131.52
Secondary Server Hostname: NS2.DNS-SOLUTIONS.NET
Secondary Server Address: 184.108.40.206
There are many different organizations that allow you
to register a domain name. Your domain will need to be
modified through the same organization it was registered.
The procedure for modifying a domain at each of these
different registrars will vary. If you are un-sure where
your domain name was registered, ProHosting will be glad
to help you transfer your domain to our servers. Please
and let us know what your domain is and we can guide you
through the process.
How long does
it take to modify an existing domain?
on the registrar used to register your domain name originally,
the time to modify an existing domain name can vary.
- When a domain
modification is accepted, something called domain propagation
needs to take place.
- Before a
transfer takes place, the "Internet" knows where
your domain name is, and remembers it. This is referred
to as caching. When your domain name is modified, the
"Internet" will still remember your domain name,
and direct traffic to where it was previously hosted.
The cache will eventually expire, and the "Internet"
will start finding your domain name in the correct location.
This process can take anywhere from 5 minutes to 7 days,
but in most cases, it takes 24-48 hours. This time will
also be different for each ISP, so someone connecting
through a different ISP than you may be able to see your
domain name before you can or visa versa.
