Domain Name Transfer to Hosting with DNS settings preserved

Want to move a domain name from another party to Hosting with a website and/or email? No problem. A transfer of a domain name to Hosting will only be implemented after 2 hours. This gives you enough time to set up the DNS after the order is submitted. Once the 2 hours have passed, the move will be shot in. After that, it may take up to 24 hours for the new nameservers to be indexed.
