    Combing domain and server (namecheap and downtownhost)

    Hello everyone.

    I recently bought a new domain and would like to have it set up with my hosted server.

    I forgot how this was done since it was a pretty long time ago I did it.

    But I need to do something with both parties right?

    I can find the DNS control at (where I registered my domain) and know what to fill in there. So on that part it's good.

    But then at downtownhost, I can't find a place where I should kind of like register the domain or tell I want this domain sticked to the server. Is this done in cPanel?

    You have to add the domain as addon domain through your cpanel, and always use the same nameservers that you got on the welcome email, the nameserver change have to be done at your domain registrar which seems to be in this case, namecheap.

    The easy way would be DNS delegation to your cpanel host.
    Login to NameCheap's control panel, manage domain and choose "Trasfer DNS to Webhost". Then in fields marked 1 and 2 insert your host name server names. Hope this helps!
