How do I point my domain to hosting I have elsewhere?

Updated May 18th, 2021 at 10:29 BST

If you have registered a domain name with us but would like your site to be hosted elsewhere, this is certainly possible.

If you would like to have all of your DNS settings hosted with your hosting elsewhere, along with all aspects of your domain/site, you would have to point the domain's nameservers to your host. You may have to contact your host to find out what these settings are.

In order to change your nameservers, you will have to login to your Client Area at my.tsohost.com and select Domains.

Once you have selected this, click on your domain name. You will be directed to a page where you can manage certain aspects of your domain, including Nameservers.

Under Nameservers on the left menu, there are five fields in which you should enter your host's nameservers. You should also choose the 'Use custom nameservers' option. Once you've done this, click Change Nameservers.

Note: Please allow up to 24 hours for these changes to propagate through the global DNS system.
