    Hi, BHW.

    I have come across a problem I'm sure someone can help me with.
    I bought a domain at internetbs. It was a [dot] o r g.
    I also signed up for $1/first year hosting with NetFirms. I thought I already transferred my domain there, because I selected "transfer existing domain to new account". And also my username is basically the website I signed up for at internetbs.

    However, my microniche provider (Bulger) says he cannot install WordPress on there because it leads to [mywebsitename][dot]netfirms[dot]c o m but I want it to install to [mywebsitename]dot o r g.
    I've tried a ton of things, including nameservers but I'm not sure I did it correct.
    I also had to pay $11.99 to register AGAIN at NetFirms but it didn't work, so FML..

    If anyone could help me, I'm willing to give thanks to anything that really did help.
    THANKS GUYS.

    I've a domain/webhosting combo at NetFirms, but I haven't really used it for like half a year. I have the info at my day job's computer, so if you don't get anyone to help you before I get to work, I'll gladly check my settings and share a solution with you - I'm on Central Standard Time (CST), BTW.

    Just checked my NetFirm's account. All I had to do for my domain to point properly was updating the domain's nameservers to NF's nameservers:

    Code:
    ns1.netfirms.com
    ns2.netfirms.com
    
    Just make sure to set the domain as the primary domain from your control panel.

    Thanks for the information. I already saw the nameservers a while back but it wasn't working. My MNS provider is fixing it I hope..
    Well, that domain/webhosting combo you haven't used.. How much? PM me. :]

    Thank you.
