    This is the text from the email I received from my host:
    I have also checked mojoreisen.com, and found that it is still using the old nameservers. I will need you to login at your registrar's and update these to:
    ns1.nsresponse.com
    ns2.nsresponse.com

    How do I access the "Control Panel" mentioned above? All I know about this what my host's tech support has told me.

    Hi Rick,
    I can understand your need to make the changes. As the end user your account details would be managed by your Domain Service Provider; I've sent their contact details to the email address you provided. Feel free to reply if there are any issues contacting them.
