To point your Domain Name to our servers you just need to fill out a transfer form.
The form you need to use depends on which registrar your domain name was registered through.

to ns1.cqhost.com and ns2.cqhost.com.
Register.com: To point your Domain Name to our servers, you just need to log on to Register.com's Domain Name Manager
and add our DNS servers (nameservers) to your domain name record. http://mydomain.register.com
Other registrars: To transfer your domain name to our servers, you just need to fill out a Domain Name Record Modification Form at the registry through which your domain name was registered.
With all registrars, the part of your domain name record that needs to be changed is the Name Server Information section.
Replace the information currently there with:
Primary server hostname: ns1.cqhost.com
Primary server netaddress: 188.8.131.52
Secondary server hostname: ns2.cqhost.com
Secondary server netaddress: 184.108.40.206
Note: some registrars like register.com doesn't need the IP/netaddress.
If you don't know "who is" your registrar. Go to cqhost.com, enter your domain name in the search box (without www.) click OK then click on WHOIS OUTPUT.
