    transferring domain name

    This should be simple to answer. I am just starting to put together a website. I registered the domain name "webpinnacle.com" at Godaddy.com (registerer) . I bought some web space at another hosting company. I want to know how I can set up that domain name set up so it will point to the hosting company's space that I just purchased.

    Hi shakim

    You need to ask the people who you bought the domain from to change the ips tag for your domain name to the one used by your hosting company (ask your hosting company if your not sure what it is).

    Once the ips tag has been changed your hosting company can then change the ip addresses to point to their servers where your website will be.

    Hope I explained that ok.

    If not ask me again



    P.S Some domain name companys have a function on their website which allows you to change the ips tag your self. Have a look for that to if you like.

    GoDaddy's got a nice DNS program on their website.

    When you signed up for hosting, that company should have sent you some information on what their name servers are and the IP addresses. You'll need to go to godaddys site and modify your name servers to match what the hosting company gave you. That's it.
