Hosting a domain not registered with XMission
Domains registered through XMission, all hosting for that domain provided by XMission will be automatically configured properly. Domains registered through third party registrars will need to have their name servers or DNS settings configured to work with XMission hosting.
In order for XMission to handle DNS for your hosted domain, the name servers need to be pointed to the proper location. This can be done through the control panel offered by the registrar. Please locate the section used to declare the name servers, and set them as follows:
Secondary: ns1.xmission.com, ns2.xmission.com
This will point the name servers towards XMission's servers, after the change has completed its propagation period (it can take up-to 24-48 hours), any DNS configured in your XMission Hosting Control Panel will take effect.
Web Hosting Only
In the situation that the DNS needs to stay with the registrar or elsewhere, an A record needs to be added for the hosting with XMission to take effect.
In the registrars DNS control panel, add a new record for your domain, pointing at the IP address of the server (found under Websites and Domains, next to IP Address in your hosting control panel for your domain). Typically, the A record is formatted as follows:
Record Type: A
Domain/Record Name: @
IP Address: The IP address of your shared hosting.
