    Free DNS hosting, or something like it.

    Hello,

    I am having a little bit of a problem here with my new domain name. (It's my first time with a domain name)

    I bought a domain name from GoDaddy.com and now I need to set up some sort of DNS so I can have my domain act like a normal domain. Er.. I don't know exactly how to expalin it, but here's an example:

    http://123.123.123.101/MySite/MyPage.asp would be connected to a DNS so that it looks like http://MyDomain.Com/MySite/MyPage.asp

    Now I am not sure exactly what I am looking for, but I need a primary and a secondary nameserver to connected to my IP so that the pages turn out and look like the link above.

    Do you know what I mean, can anyone help me?

    What you need to do - i think - is this:

    Your domain name is registered with GoDaddy. The domain name should, by default, point at their nameservers. (Do a whois lookup to confirm).

    Your site is, I assume, hosted by another company. Contact them, find out what their nameserver addresses are, and then - GoDaddy should have some sort of DNS management page for people who have domain names registered with them. Use this to change the existing DNS entries to your hosting company's ones.

    Then you need your hosting company to set up Domain Aliasing (they might call it something different, and they might charge for it, mine charges 5/yr). This will tell a request for a domain, once it's arrived correctly at your hosting company's nameservers, which "site" it actually wants to go to.

    Any help?

    Well, I have discovered exactly how this works, and I have registered with xname.org and made an A record which gives me the nameserver addresses to type into the nameserver I use.

    So since I host myself, I don't have any nameservers, that is why I had to use xname.org.

    Thank you, you have helped me.

    Well I wont go their for one, I have to use a .tk extention, two, they have popup ads, three, I already said I registered a domain name at godaddy, and four, they only forward to the address and use masking with frames. (At least they did last time I checked.)

    So please, next time read the post before replying.
