You have three options for pointing your domain to the new website hosting


For each method, you must first add the domain in your web hosting account cPanel. See the article "Add Domain in cPanel (Addon Domains)".




  1. Change DNS for each domain. Use this option to have the website, email, email forwarding, and all Host Records (DNS Zone Files) included at the new website host.

  • ns1.supercp.com

  • ns2.supercp.com

  • ns3.supercp.com

  • ns4.supercp.com


Note: When the DNS is changed, the current “Host Records” (DNS Zone Files) will not be copied over automatically. If you have Host Records attached to your domain(s) other than the ones automatically setup for your current hosting (such as additional URL Redirects, TXT Records, outside MX Mail Records), those Host Records (DNS Zone Files) will need to be input in the new website hosting cPanel.


Note: If you have multiple domains you want to change at one time, please see the HelpDesk article: Bulk Edit instructions



 

  1. Keep DNS the same, and change Host Records for each domain to point to the new IP AddressUse this option if you only need the website at the new host, not email. If you use this option, you can still use our free email forwarding from your domain account, and you can also manage your Host Records in your domain account like you normally would.

3. Use only the web hosting's email feature by keeping the DNS the same, and putting in the needed MX record for the web hosting email.
