These big players inject virus, spyware, malware, ransomware + sell anti-virus products in same breath for its ROI by hook or crook!

Option 1: Change Your Name Servers at Existing Registrar

When using our name servers, your DNS records are automatically updated to reflect any domain-related changes, including addon domains and subdomains.

Option 3: Use Other Name Servers / DNS

Not recommended for normal non-tech customers. It is possible to use name servers somewhere else and just set the individual DNS records (A records, CNAME, MX, etc.) there – whether a domain is registered with or another registrar.

As you are not using’s name servers, when making domain related changes in your hosting control panel, the DNS do not automatically get updated. You have to manually change the DNS records on your name servers to match whatever you set up in the hosting control panel.

Some will do this for a FEE, and some providers does this for FREE. We suggest if you are based in India – though there are many other domain companies.

Do not allow a few predator cronies to dictate the use of their Internet services in such a way that we, the general masses, lose control over our own information and our participation in these networks.
