I'd like to point over my domain name to the site I built at Homestead. I was told I need some nameservers from you to add to my domain account manager. Where can I find the nameservers to point my domain?

Official Response
Here are instructions to point your domain to Homestead using nameservers. If your domain provider is Go Daddy, read specific instructions to point from Go Daddy.

Important: If you have email with your current provider and want to keep your email with them, you'll need to complete a CNAME Point.

To point your domain using nameservers
  1. Contact your current domain provider to add our Nameservers. Some providers allow you to do this online. If yours doesn't, you can call or email them to complete this step with our Nameservers.
