How To Host An External Domain At Truehost Cloud

Do you want to host an external domain at Truehost? Well, let’s dive in and get learn how to.

Truehost does allow one to host an external domain. However, it would be best to have web hosting where your domain will reside.

Why host a domain with an external host?

  1. Increased reliability- external hosts have dedicated teams of engineers responsible for keeping their servers up and running. Knowing that your website will be available even if your server goes down can give you peace of mind.
  2. Improved performance- most external hosts often have better infrastructure than you can afford to build yourself. It leads to faster loading times for your website and a better user experience.
  3. Reduced workload- An external host can handle everything if you need more time or expertise to manage your web hosting. It frees up your time to focus on other aspects of your business.

Drawbacks to hosting a domain at an external host:

  • Cost. External hosting can be more expensive than hosting your domain.
  • Loss of control. When you host your domain with an external host, you lose some control over how your website is managed.
  • Vendor lock-in. If careless, you could end up locked into a long-term contract with an external host.

Whether or not to host a domain at an external host depends on your specific needs and circumstances. 

Here are the steps on how to update the nameservers for a domain:

  1. Log in to your domain registrar’s account.
  2. Find the DNS management section of your domain registrar’s account.
  3. Add these nameservers for your Truehost Cloud account in the “Nameservers” field:(,,
  4. Click on the “Save” button.

Now login to your cPanel and add the domain as an addon. It may take a few hours for the changes to propagate. 

Once the changes have propagated, your domain will be hosted at Truehost Cloud. That’s it; now host an external domain at Truehost.
