Anyone out there know how to do this? I contacted [email protected], but they told me I needed to contact the registrar support regarding this. Problem with that is that I'd have to pay to get support from those fuc... err, fine people.
you need to have the company who you got your domain name through set up the dns for you and point them to the given ip addrssses (if you cannot log in and do this yourself) this alows people to use ns1.yourname.com and ns2.yourname.com for their webserver instead of ns1.yourprovider.com and ns2.yourprovider.com
eep... forgot to update this one. I've finally got things figured out, to a point anyway. The reason I couldn't figure out how to do this on my own is because my now-ex registrar (eHost) charges extra for this feature and has the option hidden away in a knowledgebase article. I'm currently in the process of transferring the domain to GoDaddy, and according to what I've read, it's pretty easy to get it set up there.
Yes this is terrible news that they are charging extra, absolutely horrible business. We recommend that you are transferring your domain(s) to GoDaddy, we have many domains hosted there and could not be happier.
If you need any more help you can post here and I will answer.
