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

OK Guys - this is where I get confused. I have done what is requested above -
1 Log in to your Account Manager - I did that - clicking the words Account manager as in the instructions
2. I see the word DOMAINS - but NO 'Launch' - rather just MANAGE

So I'm LOST - I'm not sure what to 'click'? if the word LAUNCH is not there.

Am I confused? - I am trying to do what is told me above.

Maybe try it yourself and see if you replicate my problem - and tell me what I'm doing wrong - don't worry - it is ALWAYS like this with me a technology - NOTHING EVER goes smoothly - I'm not sure what it is about me and tech - but I"M DETERMINED to get this right - I HAVE to get it right as I am going to be training others in how to build their website with WA.

Sorry to be a bug everyone - but I just need this help.

You would select Manage, you'll be able to update your DNS there. I haven't used GoDaddy in a while, so I can't attempt to replicate.

I purchased my domain from Whois, and their support is terrible. I finally found where I needed to change my name servers (I think) and I entered them, and it hasn't updated or worked yet. So I am unable to create my website here. Not sure what's happening, but now when I go back to whois, it's just giving me an error. They have no support. I called a phone number and it's just an answering machine. Not sure how I am supposed to figure this out. Any advice?

Sorry for this frustration. You did exactly as Kyle laid out in the training and saved it at WhoIs. Don't like those guys much either. Can you get back into your domain and retrace the steps so to speak, or do it again? or is this where the error message is showing up? It should transfer like asap. I use GoDaddy so not a ton of help here...sorry:( Hopefully, someone here used the same server and can help out. Best of luck.

Thank you for your reply. I finally figured it out. It was almost like they purposely placed it in a very un-obvious place. I had literally entered my wealthy affiliate name servers in two fields that stated "default name server 1" and "default name server 2". I ended up finding where to actually enter them, under a category that you wouldn't have even thought you would find those fields. Just weird. But, all is good now :)

I bought my domain through godaddy. It is currently attached to a website, and I am no longer involved with that company. I assume I will continue my annual fee at Godaddy after I connect the domain with WA, correct?

my domain is smarttenterprises.com
I have another one that I will use on another site for motivational speaking, but it is up on a word press site now for motivational speaking.
that one is smarttleadership.com

Can I make these moves to a new site here?

As far as I know you can. Are both at GoDaddy? You just point them to WA as above. If the other which is so awesome by the way is purchased via Wordpress.com I am not sure. I had one there but let it expire. Happy New Year!

I just tried to transfer a domain from namecheap, and I followed the instructions for adding the WA name servers, but I am having some problems. When I go into Site Domains, it's in the list of "Other Domains, and when I click on "Transfer to WA," I get the prompt to Transfer New Domain, but it's asking for a Transfer Verification Code. Where do I get this code from?

DO NOT TRANSFER. That is an entirely different operation altogether.

The words you need to be looking for are "Domain Name Server"

Thank you. So by doing this, does this mean my website is now hosted by WA, or still with NameCheap?

Your domain name is registered with NameCheap.
Your web site is hosted by WA.
