In the last part of the series (Part 4), this video covers the difference between transferring a domain to another party (which transfer ownership) vs. simply changing where the domain name is pointing to.

I created to be used in the course Web Terminology For New Webmasters but it certainly can stand on it's own but if you haven't see the previous three videos (links included below) it may not make as much sense as there is a story line of sorts.

Here are links to the previous vidoes:

Hey Cate,
There is training specific to setting up your hosting with WA which you can find here: This training will tell you exactly what ns1 and ns2 values to use.

As for your registrar (Yola) asking for the IP address, I've never heard of that before. You usually only need the ns1 and ns2. You may want to put in a support ticket with Yola and ask them why they need this and where to find it.

Best Regards,
Jim

Hey Cyril,
I'll display them after I describe how to get them so you know for the future:

On the left hand side of your WA screen, you should see a light blue button labeled "Build My Website". Click on that. Then on the top part of the screen you should see a tab/link called "Domains" click on that. About halfway down, you'll see two entries, Primary and Secondary.

Here is what you'll see (and you can use this if you want):

Primary Nameserver: ns1.mywahosting.com
Secondary Nameserver: ns2.mywahosting.com

Best Regards,
Jim

I agree-I liked the Jack and Jill helpers-even if they do have to stay still. I pretty much knew everything already, but wanted a refresher so many thanks and well done :)
