Use a domain with another registrar

If you already have a domain with another registrar, but would like to use it with 21st Webb, you have 2 options.

 

Option 1 – Update your domains nameservers to use 21st Webb’s nameservers

You will need to locate the Nameserver settings for the domain you would like to use. This can usually be found in the “DNS Settings” section of your account with that registrar.

Under the Nameserver settings, you may have “Use default nameservers” or a similar option selected. You will need to specify your own nameservers. You will also be presented with 4 / 5 input fields, numbered respectively. Here is where you will input 21st Webb’s nameservers:

  • ns1.21stwebb.co.uk
  • ns2.21stwebb.co.uk

All other nameserver fields are to be left blank.

Once applied, any requests (website, email, etc.) for your domain with your existing registrar will then be redirected to 21st Webb’s servers. Please note that any records with your existing registrar for that domain will now be ignored. You will need to ensure that any records for that domain that you wish to remain active are recorded using the “Zone Editor” in your 21st Webb cPanel account.

 

Option 2 – Add / Update record for services hosted by 21st Webb

You will need to locate the Domain Records settings for the domain you would like to use. This can usually be found in the “DNS Settings” section of your account with that registrar.

Under the Records settings, you may be presented with various options; including A records, AA records, AAAA records, CNAME records, MX records, SRV records and / or TXT records.

To use your domain with a website hosted by 21st Webb, you will need to add the following records:
