How to config domain setting in DirectAdmin

I would like to use a domain with my frihost account. I'm using directAdmin. However, it seems that everything is being set on DirectAdmin, no modification can be done there. Does it mean I don't need to configure anything at DSN Menu in DirectAdmin? Everything is fixed?

Or I don't have the permission to use a domain with my frihost account?

Thank you.

P.S . What I mean is DNS, not DSN. It definitely is a typing error. Sorry about that.
You set the DNS at the website.

Login, and click on your domain. Click the 'Change domain settings' button. This will allow you to choose SiteBuilder, Web Forwarding, Dynamic Web Forwarding, Custom HTML or DNS. Choose the 'DNS' option. Next, type in Frihost's DNS servers. See my screenshot to see where you should type it in.

NOTE: I use an external DNS service. You should type in frihost's DNS servers instead. Use '' and ''
Ok, thanks Very Happy .....I know what's wrong. I'm confused about the "Record Type". I don't know which one I should use. Now I will wait for 24 hours for the domain to be active.

Thanks a lot Very Happy
