How to configure external DNS

What should I do to maintain a domain in SW Hosting but point to another service provider?

To maintain a domain in SW Hosting but point it to another service provider it is necessary to change the DNS name servers (or "hostnames") of the domain.

To do it, the first step will be to access the SW Panel. In the blue column on the left, access Domains and SSL > Domain Portfolio:

You must position yourself with the cursor on the "···" tab, and in the right column, in Contacts and Hosts, you must select DNS Data:

A new tab will be opened where you will find the DNS name servers assigned to your domain. By default, you will have assigned the DNS that belongs to SW Hosting. At this point, you can modify them, enter the DNS of your other provider, and finally click on the green button Change DNS:

Finally, once you have entered the DNS records of your external provider, you must click on the checkbox I accept the responsibility and, finally, on the green button to save the changes made.

We inform you that this change takes a while to spread, so it is not immediate and that once made the change the servers of the other provider will decide on your service.
