How do I sign up for a HostRocket account using an existing domain name?

When signing up for a web hosting account with us using a domain name you have registered elsewhere, you would simply specify your existing domain and select one of the following options:

'I want to transfer my domain to HostRocket.'

in the case that you wish to transfer the domain registration to us as well. This will add $20 to the total for the domain transfer, which adds an additional year to the registration.

-or-

'I will update my nameservers on an existing domain Or I will register a new domain.'

in the case that you do not wish to transfer the domain registration to us, and will simply contact your current registrar to update the domain's authoritative nameservers. The nameservers will be included in your welcome email.
