I don't have enough information about DNS and domains. I have a domain on my host and I want to add my new domain to point to the server. I find out that it can be done with domain pointers. I set the new domain in directadmin panel and from DNS management menu I set NS records for the new domain pointing to Nameservers of the first domain. I also set DNS records of the new domain pointing to Nameservers of the first domain in the panel of the hosting site I bought the domain from. But when I ping the new domain it says:
Ping request could not find host
Am I doing things right? Did I miss something or did anything extra?
I have a domain (example.com) on a host which uses direct admin. the ip of the server is X.Y.Z.W
example.com has 2 dns according to intoDNS: dns1.something.com. & dns2.something.com.
I bought a new domain from a hosting site (newdomain.com). I want newdomain.com to point to X.Y.Z.W
configs that I've done:
- add newdomain.com as a domain pointer alias to example.com
- add dns1.something.com. & dns2.something.com. as NS record in DNS Administration for newdomain.com
- In the domain management panel of newdomain.com in hosting site I changed DNSs to dns1.something.com & dns2.something.com
