Domain Transfer vs. Nameserver Change

How do domain names work?

Domain names are registered with a domain registrar. You pay the registrar a yearly fee to keep the domain active. Your registrar then points the domain name to a set of nameservers, and those nameservers in essence point your domain name to your hosting company.

You can register your domain with any domain registrar you would like, and you can still host that website with THC Servers as long as you ask your registrar to point your domain’s nameservers to THC Servers’s nameservers.

If your task is to point your domain to our servers, you will need to make sure your nameservers are updated accordingly. Transferring registrars is not a requirement to host your website here, anyway some users like to do this to keep everything under one company.

Do I need to make any changes with my domain?

If you registered your domain name through THC Servers, then your domain name should already be pointing to the correct nameservers. If you registered your domain name through another register and you wish to now host that domain name with us, you’ll need to update your domain’s nameservers.

How can I change my nameservers?

You can change your nameservers by logging into your current registrar account and replacing the existing nameservers with your host nameserver, in our case:

ns1.thcservers.com
ns2.thcservers.com
ns3.thcservers.com
ns4.thcservers.com

Once the nameservers are changed, it can take up to 24 hours for the changes to take full effect, depending on your Internet Service Provider.

Do I need to transfer my domain?

You can transfer your domain only if you wish that THC Servers to be the company that manages your domain.  There is a domain transfer fee and its cost depends on TLD. Also, right after the domain transfer we will extend the current expiration date for one year automatically.
