You gotta go to your domain's Cpanel and write down the Frihost's server name, which I think are ns1.frihost.net and ns2.frihost.net, on the appropriate places. Afterwards, you should be able to get it, I haven't done it myself, I just read Smile.

This is where I got it from:
Quote:
Q: What are your nameservers and how do I use them?
ns1.frihost.net and ns2.frihost.net are our main nameservers. You only need them if you want to host your domain(s) with us. To do this, simply go to your domain registrar and fill those nameservers in the appropriate entries.

... the FAQ Razz

If that doesn't work, sorry.. lol I haven't done it myself, just trying to help.

I just registered a .be domain. here is what you have to do: (I'm at OVH)
First, you have to register your domain as parkde domain via the cpanel.
then, you have to point your domain to ns1.frihost.net
so, i had to do : www.phtp.be Cname ns1.frihost.net

and now it works fine. I hope I could help you Wink

I also bought a domain from net firms, let me go into some detail on the main page after u sign in there will be little headers eg: account home, billing/renewal, DOMAIN NAMES ... click domain names it will show you your domain name and there will be a little thing on the bottom called actions under your domain. click DNS Admin. scroll down to domain locking which is on the botton, disable, then go to "manage name servers" and set it to fri host server. im transfering my domain hopefully bye today.

Afterwards, you will either need to park it with cpanel (it will have public_html as a root) or make it an addon domain(then the domain will have a subdomain as root).

And you will only see your .com website in the address bar.

You shouldn't disable locking. An unlocked domain can be transferred to another registrar without your knowledge.

How someone connects to your domain:
1)He requests your domain name.
2)A root server responds, go to ns1.frihost.net and ns2.frihost.net (with ip).
3)You go to our server and ask for the domain.
4)Our server either says: "I don't know that domain" or gives back the webpage.

You need to let the server know that your domain is in here and what you want to do with it.
You can:
1)Request an account change from your subdomain to your new domain.
2)Park it. It will show the same thing as your subdomain now shows (the public_html folder).
3)Addon it. It will then show the contents of a folder in your public_html directory.
