Trying to point my domain to S Drive I am on network solutions (registrar) at the Edit DNS and it is asking me for Nameserver names?

I followed your tutorial and it referenced an ip address.

Help! (Slowly but surely I am getting in over my head but I'm trying....underwater, but trying!)

Thanks,
Pam

Might be easier to open a support ticket, and ask CC to transfer in so CC are your registrar as they are now offering new services to make this simpler

SCOTT where are you ?

If I understood Scott correctly in a prior post, CC are actually using networksolutions as registrar for domains bought and 'registered' at CoffeeCup...

We are partnered with Network Solutions as well, but you do not need to update your Name Servers. All you need to do is setup a CNAME and point that to your S-Drive account.

We have instructions here at http://www.coffeecup.com/help/articles/ … h-s-drive/ on how to set this up.

On my current host site, to modify name server, it has place for primary and secondary nameserver. what do I do in this case if primary point is the S-drive account?

No, you will leave your name servers alone. All you need is to CNAME the address to your account.

Hi Pam,

I did this a few weeks ago for one of my domains that was registered with Network Solutions.

Log into your account and choose My Products & Services - > Edit DNS -> A Record.

Here set the three elements: www, @ (None) and *(All Others) each to 66.223.62.9

There is no need to alter or configure a CNAME

This worked for me on domain fixtronix.com and I now have three sub domains all pointing to S-Drive sites: http://shop.fixtronix.com, http://blog.fixtronix.com and http://www.fixtronix.com

On Network Solutions, the CNAME settings remain unchanged and state: "No CNAME Records" (I just logged in to double check!).

When I log in to NetSol and click "Edit DNS", there is no option for "A Record". NetSol offers the option of either straight DNS (no IP, natch) or "Advanced DNS" which includes "A, MX, CNAME, TXT and SRV Records". When I select Advanced DNS, I am warned:

In order to use Advanced DNS Manager, your Name Servers must be moved to Network Solutions managed name servers.

Which, of course, could take a day or more to propagate. I assume that after that I would have the option of changing CNAME? It has been literally years since I needed to tinker with this stuff.

I assumed correctly. Never mind. :/

Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
