Are you looking to forward your domains here or move them here? You can start either process by going to Websites > Site Domains.

The nameservers are:
ns1.mywahosting.com
ns2.mywahosting.com

I have both domains hosted here as well as one I'm just pointing here so if you need help let me know.

As for your site content, are they on a WP host? If so you can just use a plugin to back them up and restore them. If not you may have to recreate them, I'm not sure.

Move them here completely and they are not WP hosted. I go thru Hostgator.
And I really appreciate your reply

OK so go to Websites>Site Domains and click the button to Transfer a Domain to WA in the Transfer Domains to WA section.

You'll need to make sure that a transfer lock isn't enabled on your sites and that you have the EPP transfer codes (obtainable from your current host).

Once you have submitted the transfers, I'd work on getting your content moved over. You might reach out to site support to see if they know of a way to move a non-WP site to a WP hosted solution. Short of copying and pasting your current content, I don't know of one.

Oh OK...then grab a plugin that does a full backup..create the sites here at WA, install your theme and then restore using that same plugin.
