How do I point my domain to 123 Reg Hosting?

This FAQ will help you to point your domain name to your Hosting package. These instructions will show you how to configure your domain name so that it displays the website you have on your 123 Reg Hosting package.

Please note: These changes can take between 24 and 48 hours to propagate across the internet.

These instructions apply solely to domain names managed through your 123 Reg Control Panel.
