Did you buy a domain from 1&1 Ionos but you want to use A2 Hosting as your web host?

No problem!

What you’re going to do is point the domain to A2 hosting.

It may sound complicated – but luckily, it isn’t!

Our video tutorial will walk you through all the steps.

You’ll need to log into both your A2 account and your 1&1 account, so make sure you have your login credentials handy.

I suggest logging in to different browsers or tab so you can easily go back and forth between the 2 accounts.

Basically, what you’re going to do is copy something called a nameserver from A2 and paste it into 1&1.  There should be 4 name servers listed on your A2 account and 4 blank spaces available in your 1&1 account, so you’ll be copying & pasting 4 times.  The video will show you where you need to go and how to do it – just follow along and you’ll be fine!

One thing to remember – after you’re done, you’ll have to wait for the changes to take full effect.  It can take up to 24-48 hours. This is known as DNS propagation – you can read more about this here if you’re interested.
