How to change nameservers & manage DNS in freenom instead?


#1

Hi,

How can I change nameservers (in 000webhost not freenom)?

FROM: ns01.000webhost.com and ns02.000webhost.com nameservers.
TO: NS01.FREENOM.COM and NS01.FREENOM.COM

is this possible? I couldn’t locate it. I’ve been spending plenty hours but couldn’t find good / direct answers in the web. I also tried your guide but doesn’t work, sorry for that.

Bottomline, I wanted to point the domain name (not park). I also wanted to manage DNS in Freenom (not in 000webhost).
And how do I set A-record & CNAME (in Freenom)? Let’s say my domain name is example.com (& example.000webhostapp.com) .
Thanks in advance

Hi @raymacz1!

DNS management from 000webhost is allowed only for paid plans, however you can use Freenom DNS by linking your domain to your site using CNAME records.

  1. Fully unlink/unpark your domain from 000webhost

  2. Use Freenom default nameservers

  3. Add two CNAME records in Freenom DNS panel:
     
    your-domain.com —> example.000webhostapp.com
    www —> example.000webhostapp.com

  4. Wait 10 minutes.

  5. Go to 000webhost cPanel > Change web address > Add > Point domain and try pointing your domain until it works.

Hi Teodor,

Amazing swift reply & easy to understand! Now I get it, you add TWO (not 1) CNAMEs for both domain & subdomain.

This topic is a bit confusing How to point domain from freenom.com to 000webhost.com

You are one of a kind! Thanks man. Someday I’ll subscribe to premium. Just testing some sites. Awesome fast replies you have. Again, many thanks.
