This article shows you how to update your domain’s name servers hosted by1&1 IONOS – the German-based web hosting provider. This method does not transfer the domain to Ecenica, so you’ll still need to contact 1&1 IONOS to renew your domain, or if you have a problem with your domain. If you would prefer to transfer your domain to us, see How to transfer 1&1 IONOS domain names to Ecenica.
