If you transfer a Domain, it is possible to keep your current nameservers. We will then, enter the nameservers of your previous provider into our system.
I want to keep the current nameservers
At standard this option is deactivated and can be activated during the ordering procedure. Click in the shopping cart at the tab “nameserver” and activate checkbox “Keep current nameservers”. In that case and if it's technically possible, we will apply the nameservers of the previous provider. This exclusively relates to the nameservers and not to the entries and records on the nameservers.
You can make this your standard settings. Therefore, go to the customer area to the menuitem “Settings” → “Default settings”. As long as this option is set, we will by default apply your previous nameservers. Other default settings on the nameserver will not be effective.
Regardless of the default settings, this function can be activated or deactivated in the shopping cart for individual domains.
If you want to change back to our nameservers, you can read more.
When I try to transfer while keeping the previous nameservers, I receive the error message “2 nameserver are minimum.”
In case keeping your nameservers did not work, because e.g. your nameservers are invalid, you will receive the error message “2 nameserver are minimum.”In the shopping cart, remove the check mark under the tab “Nameserver”. Then enter other external nameservers or choose one of our name server sets.
I want to use other nameservers or a nameserverset of INWX
To use other nameservers or one of our nameserver-sets remove the check mark under the tab “Nameserver” in the shopping cart. Then enter other external nameservers or choose one of our name server sets.
