u MUST change the nameservers of ur domain to frihosts domain(ns1.frihost.net and ns2.frihost.net).U do this in your domain registars admin panel
Then add that domain in your directadmin panel

This information is actually wrong.

If you are given a free hosting account, it will be created on server 2. This means that the nameservers are ns1.frih.net and ns2.frih.net - you need to add these to your domain name's DNS settings with your domain registrar (the people you buy the domain from). Once you have done this, you will then need to log into DirectAdmin and add a new domain - call it "yourdomain.com" (obviously replacing this with your actual purchased domain name) and remember not to incluse the quotes or the "www."

you can also point your domain to the IPs of Frihost. means that you can add A record such as

A www 127.0.0.0 (eg.)
A @ 127.0.0.0 (eg.)

These are not the Frihost IP addresses - if you use an A-Record, you should point it to 216.32.85.170

The best way to find out IPs for nameservers is go into a DOS command prompt if you are running Windows.

Open command prompt (Start menu > all programs > accessories > command prompt). Then just type "nslookup" (without the quotation marks). Enter your nameserver excluding the WWW and you will always get the current IP although I think the frih IPs are listed in FAQ and are still correct Wink
