How to Point a Domain to Hostinger

Change nameservers to Hostinger and point your domain to Hostinger nameservers

Updated over a week ago

To use any domain you own with your hosting plan, you only need to point it to Hostinger. If your domain is currently pointed elsewhere, you can point it to Hostinger this way 👇

Step 1 – Change the Domain Nameservers

The nameservers for our Web and Cloud hosting plans are:



Open the domain management page on your current domain provider and set Hostinger’s nameservers (recommended), or create an A record to point the domain to the IP of your hosting plan.

If your domain is purchased at Hostinger, you can set the default nameservers on the domain management page.

Once you make any DNS changes, such as updating nameservers or DNS records, consider up to 24 hours for the propagation process to complete, during which your website can be unavailable. Give your domain some time, and it will start working soon – usually, a couple of hours is enough. Meanwhile, you can proceed with the next step right away.


  • Pointing your domain via nameservers will automatically set your email-related records for Hostinger Email. If you're using a different email service, make sure to update your MX records with those of your email provider after the nameserver change has fully propagated

Step 2 – Add the Domain to Your Hosting Plan

The next step is to add the domain to your hosting plan. Navigate to the Websites section of hPanel and click on Create or migrate a website:

Next, follow the onboarding process. Once propagation is completed, you may be able to manage your domain's records using the DNS Zone Editor 😊

To manage all domain-related aspects in one place, consider transferring your domain to Hostinger 💡
