Webmasters sometimes have the need to add another domain to their website hosting account. To do this perform the following steps one right after another.
Point your domain to your hosting account.
Access the domain account with the 3rd-party that has your domain registered and swap the domain’s DNS information so it points to the My Internet Scout host account. Every domain hosting has a different way of accessing the DNS information; however, once you’re proper place for editing the server info you’ll need to replace the primary and secondary server information with the following…
- Primary Server: ns1.rhostjh.com
- Secondary Server: ns2.rhostjh.com
Once this is saved, it’ll take the internet 3-8 hours (sometimes longer) to propagate the new information and direct visitors to the new server.
Prepare your website hosting account to accept the new domain.
On this form you’ll tell the server what the new domain name is and to which directory it should be pointed to. If you’ve already set up a new WordPress install in another directory, input that directory’s name precisely; directory names are case sensitive.
Once the information is filled out, it’s time to wait and check the domain every so often. You’ll know the propagation is finished when your browser presents the new location when you visit the domain.
