Set Up Your Hosting
Modify the DNS records for your domain name and point it at your new hosting account
You might have to wait a little while before you can start using your hosting account. Don't worry if you do, you can always come back to this task later on.
- Get the IP address of the server that your hosting account is located on. You should have received this information from your host. Get in touch with them if you don't have it.
- Login to the website that you bought the domain from and find the screen that allows you to edit the DNS records for your domain. Modify the 'A record' for yourdomain.com and set the IP address for the 'A record' to the IP address of your hosting account.
- Finally you want to modify or add the DNS record for www.yourdomain.com and set it as a CNAME record for yourdomain.com.
Now you just have to wait for up to 24 hours ( although it's normally a lot sooner than that) for the DNS information for your domain to propagate across the internet. When everything is done, your hosting account should now be available by typing http://yourdomain.com into your web browser.
