Domain Pointing/Name Servers

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Okay, so I've registered my domain with Netfirms, and I've got my ISP's name servers, (I assume I need their name servers to point to my server with their name servers), and I've registered them. Now I understand it takes about 48 hours for that to take effect.

So what do I do with the POINTING of the domain?
I have 4 options:

1. Home Directory - I'd assume that this only effects the website if it is registered and hosted by Netfirms, so we'll ignore it.
2. Sub directory - Same scenario.
3. URL - We have 2 sub items for this one. standard and stealth. Standard just redirects the user to my IP address, causing my IP address to appear in the url bar, like so:
4. Parked - This makes it so that the page displayed is just a ton of advertising...

URL: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/derp/index.html.

Stealth forwarding causes it to lead to a page which is made up of a frame to my website, making "http://www.connorkuehl.com/ to consistenantly be at the title of the page, instead of my custom "<title>"

Since I've set up the name servers, which option do I use for domain pointing?

if your registration included DNS services you would simply enter the IP address into your web console and then it would propogate out to the Internet over time just like you say

as far as what they call that option with your service I have no idea

if you are attempting to run DNS on some home server you need to have that DNS server talk to your ISP's DNS servers so the records transfer properly

there is a configuration point for this in Windows Server but I forget where off the top of my head since I haven't worked with Win Server for some time

the other option would be to use dyndns or some other dynamic service

you seem to have things working
