I just registered a domain for a client of mine. All he wanted was a domain and domain forwarding.
After I got the domain registered for him, he told his web hoster to give me a call and to give me the details so that I could forward his domain to the correct IP and etc.
Now, the funniest thing is that...
His web hoster actually told me to forward the domain to this shared IP, 126.96.36.199.
I'm just wondering right now what I should do or where should I proceed? I told him to just give me his DNS server and I'll be done with it in less than 2 minutes but he said he has no DNS cause he does not do email hosting.
I'm seriously lost and really baffled by the request.
What am I suppose to do? Could someone just explain what I'm actually suppose to be doing? As far as I know, I could just create an account for him on WHM and change his DNS to point everything to that shared addy but what good would it do? Wouldn't getting his server's DNS addy be easier/faster?
If anyone has ever come across such a thing before, please do advice. Thanks.

Yes it would. My issue with this would be them using my nameservers but not paying anything for it. It's not a lot of bandwidth or CPU, but it is still not free.
Does the registrar you use offer you any DNS functions? I know enom does, and if yours does I would use them instead.
We had this recently too. A client registered a domain with a Reseller good while back. He then came along and said he was getting a hosted store built and provided us/Reseller an IP to point the domain at. I asked for the nameservers and his new host said that that would cost him more!
