Understanding the Domain Name Transfer Process

Your Domain Name Registrar maintains information relating to who your Web hosting provider for your Web site. When you change hosting companies, your Domain Name Registrar must be given the necessary information to redirect traffic to your new location. There are dozens of Domain Name Registrars and they all have different procedures to complete the process.

To expedite the transfer of your domain to Host Metro, as your preferred Web hosting provider, simply contact your Domain Name Registrar and request a technical contact change. Ensure you have the below information handy when speaking to your Domain Name Registrar support team.

Host Metro's primary and secondary DNS servers:
Primary Server: NS1.HOSTMETRO.COM
Secondary Server: NS2.HOSTMETRO.COM

Once you have completed the transfer process with your registrar, it may take up to 7 business days for your new information to be fully recognized across the Internet.
