Can I use a domain registered somewhere else?

Hosting with O.W.M Consulting does not require you having your domains managed here.

In fact, you can register your domains anywhere in the world and still use our hosting services.

Domains use what is called a "NameServer" and those will point where your hosting is located.

In the case you host at O.W.M Consulting, you'd be provided with our NameServers to use.

Then go to your current Domain Registrar and update those NameServers to point at ours.

Once the NameServers have been updated, it can take anywhere from 2hrs to 24hrs to update.

This is called Domain Propagation and that time will vary based on the current Registrar used.

Unfortunately, it is difficult for us to explain how you update the NameServers at your Registrar.

Due to each Registrar having different options and setup, we'd encourage you contact them.

Though most Registrars will have a "How To" or "FAQs" page that will explain the process there.

Or in the event that fails, you can contact the Registrar for client support.

If you have any questions regarding this, please do not hesitate to contact our support team.
