 If you already have a domain name registered with another domain registrar you can add it to your RescueGroups.org Website Service

Where do I find it?

Go to Services > Add a Domain Name (from the drop-down menu) or go to Services > Domains and use the Add a Domain Name button. 

It's easy to add your existing domains to your Website Service.


Important

If you have email services or any other configurations on your domain name with your current DNS provider/registrar, they will stop working when you change the name servers.  The most common examples are email services or Google Apps.  To prevent any interruption of service, please contact us before continuing if you're not sure whether you have configurations that might stop working.

Pointing the domain to RescueGroups.org

  1. Log in to your current domain name registrar (for example GoDaddy, Network Solutions, etc) and look for the option for "Name Servers."

  2. Enter the following name servers: 
    dns1.rescuegroups.org
    dns2.rescuegroups.org

  3. Save the changes, and within a few hours, your domain name will begin to use the RescueGroups.org DNS service so that when you browse to your domain name you see your RescueGroups.org website. If you do not see the change within 24 hours, please contact us.
