I bought a domain now what?
« on: September 15, 2012, 10:27:35 am »
Okay so i bought a domain and i don't know how to get my forums nameservers....


I called the owners of the domain hosting/selling places and they said i need to buy a dns server for the nameservers..


but last time i didn't do that (my wix page which was like last year)


Does anyone know how to get the name servers? cause i spent $24 on the domain and now they want me to spend another $18, and im positive if i know how to get the nameservers i will be able to link my forums, does anyone know how to get them?

Where did you buy the domain at?

Normally you have to create two nameservers ns1.yourdomainname.com and ns2.yourdomainname.com
Point them both to the ip of 68.233.250.132

And then point the domain to ns1.yourdomainname.com and ns2.yourdomainname.com

You would need to contact their support department they should be able to set it up.  Use my post above as a guide for them.

They want me to spend an extra $18 when i already spent $24 for the domain, I don't want to spend anymore... Do you know a free way for DNS hosting?
