If you register a domain with a host but then point servers to another host to host with a new server company does it slow down your site or any other affect?

Asked by mikey7183 (338points) April 13th, 2009

The reason I am not transferring the host registrar of my old host to my new host is because I heard this is a long and tedious process that is unnecessary, but I was curious if it makes any difference on performance of the site, because my old host sucked and was really slow

No, it shouldn’t make any difference. Registrars simply handle the selling of domain names. Once they are registered they are all put into the same core DNS servers.

It’s really not that long of a process, and you should switch if the other company has better rates or features.
