After registering your new domain, or submitting your domain transfer request via the Domain Transfer Manager (DTM), you would need to access the Manage DNS tool within konsoleH to adjust your website records to point to the IP address of the server that is hosting your website.
Contact your website provider:
- To ensure you have the correct IP address for website records
- To ensure that they are aware that we will be administering the domain record while they will administer your website hosting.
- Ask them if there are specific settings that need to be configured on the DNS record to ensure your website is uninterrupted.
Change DNS records in konsoleH
- Browse to konsoleH and log in at Admin level
- Select or search for a domain name in the Hosting Service tab
- Select Manage Services from the left-hand menu

- Please be aware that it can take up to 24 hours before you will see your DNS changes reflected due to DNS propagation.
