When using Hostwinds services, we understand that there are other options for domain name registration. You may also choose to change the nameservers or DNS settings that your domain uses when registering a domain elsewhere so that it is pointed to your Hostwinds service. The Hostwinds Service Information email contains the provided nameservers. You may also find them on the Management page of the Hostwinds service within the Client Area for any Shared or Business Hosting web hosting services. This guide will show you how to set name servers at Google Domains.
