          IMPORTANT: Each domain has its own assigned nameservers, so it is very important that this page is visited to determine what those are.
     
    You will need to copy those custom Nameservers and update them with your other registrar. Below are the links to the instructions on how to do this in your third party domain registrar:
  5. Once done, go back to your REI BlackBook account's Domain Manager to confirm that import is successful.

 

NOTE: It may take 24- 36 hours for Nameserver changes to take effect.If you have any questions or comments on any of the instructions above, please feel free to reach out to us at any time at support@reiblackbook.com.
