How do I use a domain name purchased through HostMantis with another hosting provider?

Your new provider should have provided you with nameservers for your hosting account (i.e. ns1.hostingprovider.com, ns2.hostingprovider.com). You will need those in order to do the following:

Log into our client area (https://my.hostmantis.com/clientarea.php)
Click Domains
Click My Domains
Click Manage Domain for the domain
Click Nameservers
Choose Use Custom Nameservers and enter the nameservers your new provider provided you.
Click Change Nameservers

It can take up to 24 hours for the change to become affective depending on how fast your ISP updates their DNS info, however most changes are seen within minutes.
