On Profile section which can be accessed by pressing My Profile button you can update your personal details, change the password and add your social media accounts.

Once you have pointed your domain name, allow 24 hours for DNS to fully propagate. You can also point the domain name via A record (IP address). The IP address of your account can be found on Hosting page.
If you choose to register a new domain name during registration, you don’t have to change any DNS details – your domain name will be automatically pointed to Hostinger servers. At Hostinger we aim to register domains as soon as possible.
