    i just bought 2 new domains from internet.bs and i was wondering how i add them to my hosting. From what ive read i have too change the dns before i can add it to my cpanel account. how would i go about finding the correct dns to change it to. I'm using hostwinds if that helps any.
    thanks

    Register name servers for the domain in your domain registrar

    Then go to cpanel and then add the domain there and use the name servers there to connect them.

    Wait for 48 hours or so for the DNS to propagate

    There should be an option in your registrar's backend. "Domain name server setup" or similar.

    if you don't have it, you have to upgrade your hosting account to a more expensive one (I had that problem with mine)
