I am changing registrars (from GoDaddy to Namecheap) and keeping my 19 or 20 domains at Homestead. My new registrar (namecheap) tells me I have to supply my nameservers for each domain. What are my nameservers or where do I find them? Or better yet, will you do it for me, even for a fee? I'd invite you for dinner but...

Hi Leiah1581,

Unfortunately we won't be able to make these changes for you.

Our nameservers are:

NS1.MDNSSERVICE.COM
NS2.MDNSSERVICE.COM
NS3.MDNSSERVICE.COM

Here's a topic with more detail on pointing your domain name via nameservers.

Also, when moving registrars, you'll need to recreate your email addresses (if you're using email with your domain name). If you don't plan on using our email service (Hmail), you may want to look into doing a CNAME Point. A CNAME Point will allow you to point your domains to your websites without affecting your email (if it was setup with Namecheap, for example).

*Please note: If you did not delete any of the pointed domains from your Homestead account, you can skip the steps of pointing the domains again. All you need to do is provide your new registrar with the information (nameservers or cname/a records if you're going to use an email service other than ours).

Here's a topic on how to complete a "CNAME Point" in case you'd prefer that method.

*you have a "homestead" account

I hope this info helps, please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,
Ehsan
