To Set up Your Domain Name Servers

  1. Log in to your 1&! account manager at http://admin.1and1.com

  2. On the Administration Tab , Click Domains.

  3. Select the domain you want to host on your dedicated server and click Edit DNS Settings

  4. In the Edit DNS Settings section, under Basic DNS Settings, select My name sever. Then enter the primary and secondary name servers as: (make sure you put them in lower case)

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


  5. Click OK to save your changes
Remember that once you change your Name servers it can take up to 24 hours for the changes to take affect. Our tests show that it only takes between 8 and 10 hours to resolve the WA Hosting name servers

I don't have any of these sites and I have tried to update my website a number of times. So I am not sure what I am to be doing to gather the necessary information. Also I keep adding people to my site and commenting on others as well, but I am unable to received any response back. What else can I do to make things better?

where is your domain hosted then Kray63? Maybe someone can help you. I am with GoDaddy so not sure I can help. But if you have your website working here already you don't have to worry about the hosting. From what I see in your post, you are adding people to your site and commenting so I am a little confused.

I got a rely to add my website pkm1963.com to this company website. I went in a paid $13.36 to add it from Wordpress.com which my first website was designed and setup through Wordpress. I went to upload the information and I was continuing to get the information to upgrade or lose my website as well as the other information.
What I was trying to do was make sure it was added without getting another message. Plus I have that one already established to add this one on. So my question would be do I need to do anything else or am I good?

I have redirected the name servers in GoDaddy (2 days ago) and input my domain name for WA hosting, next to the url it says "Ready" but when I go to "Create A New Website On A Domain I Own", it comes up with an error message saying I have to enable WA hosting via the Domains page. Have I done something wrong?

Good morning Fran. It sounds like you did everything correctly. I would suggest you allow WA Support to help in this matter. They are fast and will do it correctly.
I hope this helps.

How do you update DNS settings on WA? I have watched the tutorial, but it's about setting up domain DNS, which doesn't help me at all. Info: I bought my domain from Namecheap and successfully transferred to WA, so I guess I should update my DNS setting here--I have no records in my Namecheap account since I transferred the domain to WA.

Hi Prinz, if your domains have been transferred to WA, i.e., you've re-registered them via SiteDomains, and if your website is being hosted here on WA SiteRubix, then the DNS will be sorted out at WA's backend, you don't have to do anything. This tutorial is for people who've registered their domains outside of WA.

Thanks Pamdemonium. I understand that the DNS had been sorted out already. Actually, I'm trying to set up a Mandrill API key via MailChimp and I'm required to set up sending domains. To start sending through Mandrill, I need to verify ownership of my sending domain and update my DNS records. Unfortunately, site support can't help and I'm trying to figure out how this can be done.

Ahh, I see... I do use Mailchimp (not for my own personal sites), but am not familiar with Mandrill.

I hope you get your query sorted! Wishing you all the best...:)

Everything on here is so clear and easy to understand. The site is so well laid out. I spent about half an hour trying to find out how to redirect the nameservers and install wordpress in my namecheap account. Then I logged into my WA account and found what I needed in about 5 minutes. Thanks WA.

NeBro and Kyle...

I took the information you gave me below:

To Set up Your Domain Name Servers at GoDaddy, do the following:
1. Log in to your Account Manager.
2. Next to Domains, click Launch.
3. Select the domain name(s) you want to modify.
4. From the Nameservers menu, select Set Nameservers.
5. Under Setup type, select Custom.
6. Select Add Nameservers.
7. Enter the two WA Hosting nameservers

Primary: NS1.MYWAHOSTING.COM
Secondary: NS2.MYWAHOSTING.COM
8. Click Save.

BUT..THIS happened:

1. After logging to Account Manager
2. I find “Domains” then “Rate Product” and MANAGE
3. Rate Product” is “required”
4. Next I clicked MANAGE
5. Then the screen had two boxes – one had my domain with “is using external nameservers”
6. Next I clicked the “settings” star in the upper right hand corner of this box
7. It showed “Domain settings” and “Manage DNS”
8. I then clicked Manage DNS – this already had the primary and secondary nameservers for WA there – sand at the bottom there were two more boxes – “Advanced Features” and “Forwarding”, which indicated that neither the “Domain” nor the ”Subdomain” were setup for “Forwarding and had “ADD” next to each one.

So I am assuming (dangerous, I know) that my domain is already pointed at WA.
Is that correct? Or am I doing something totally off the wall???

Need some guidance here...sorry for being so inept...still

Press On!.

Yes, the nameservers are pointing to WA so you are good to go.

Mumsconnect, you have to go into the blue Site Rubix box and go to build your website and your domain name where it says on a domain I own. If that does not show it then go to manage domains and enter it there. Just follow what it tells you. Hope this helps
