How do I point my domain name at the 123-reg Holding page?

This article will explain how you can point your registered domain name at the 123-reg Holding Page.

Please Note: It will take between 24 - 48 hours for the new DNS records to become active.

Firstly, you need to ensure your domain is pointed to our nameservers:

  • ns.123-reg.co.uk
  • ns2.123-reg.co.uk

If the domain is not pointed to the 123-reg nameservers, you will be unable to manage them from the 123-reg control panel.

For more information on changing your nameservers please view the following article:

How do I change the nameservers for my domain name?

Please note: Upon changing your nameservers to 123-reg, this will set any existing DNS to our default, meaning the domain will no longer point at the website its was previously showing, and any MX records will have to be recreated for email services.
