Transferring Name Servers During a Domain Transfer

If you’re just transferring the domain registration, your hosting service will be unaffected, and there will be no need to change name servers. Although the name servers should be transferred as part of the process, it’s always a good idea to have a record of them.

If you wish to specify the name servers to the default DNS servers as provided by 101domain you can reset the name servers after the transfer has been completed.


  1. Login to your account.
  2. Select the Domain Names tab.
  3. Select the domain that you want to change name servers for.
  4. From within the DNS Servers section click on Edit DNS Server.
  5. Change the name servers as required, leaving any of the fields blank will retain the original DNS server.

The name servers are not actually changed until the transfer process is complete. If you wish to make an immediate change to the name servers, you may do so with the Registrar you are transferring from.
