I bought a .st domain. The website for these domains is awful and really confusing. I got the domain pointing to my server, but if I set up email forwarding it blows away all of my DNS information.

I can't transfer a .st domain to a standard hosting service (like godaddy or mediatemple). Does anyone have any advice on how to proceed?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

What TLD your domain has doesn't make it any more confusing to manage. .st domains are managed just like any other:

  1. At your registrar, set your DNS servers as the authoritative servers for your domain.
  2. In your DNS servers, create A/CNAME/MX/etc. records as you see fit.
  3. Set up apache vhosts on your server (or shared webhost) for the domains that are pointed at the server.
  4. Done!

Sounds like they have a crappy administration panel, try avoiding letting their panel do the config for you.

Look for an Advanced DNS option, or something of that nature.
