Web Hosting Getting Started Guide 14
to redirect certain settings for your domain (called name servers) so that they point to
Yahoo! s servers, the computers that make your web site available on the Internet.
The redelegation process varies depending on which registrar you originally registered your
domain. Many allow you to make the changes on their web sites.
To redelegate your domain, simply contact your registrar (such as Network Solutions) and
ask it to replace your current name servers with Yahoo! s name servers. You ll need to
provide this information:
Primary Name Server: yns1.yahoo.com
Primary IP Address: 22.214.171.124 (may not be required)
Secondary Name Server: yns2.yahoo.com
Secondary IP Address: 126.96.36.199 (may not be required)
Please be aware that Yahoo! has no jurisdiction over domain names registered with other
services. Only you (the registrant), through your current hosting provider or registrar, have
the ability to modify this information.
Once you complete redelegation, it can take up to 48 hours for changes to your domain to
take effect. During this time visitors to your domain may see whatever web site (if any) was
associated with your domain before redelegating to Yahoo!
Please be aware that redelegation is not a registrar transfer. You will still be responsible for
paying all fees associated with your domain name renewal directly to your original registrar.
For more information about redelegation, see our online help center at
Who owns the domain name I register?
When you register your domain during your order for services, you designate the registrant
(owner) and administrator. Yahoo! is only listed as the technical contact and name servers.
As the registrant, you have final authority and responsibility regarding the use of your
domain name. For more information, refer to the Domain Registration Agreement that
pertains to your domain name. You can find the Domain Registration Agreement in your
Terms of Service.
