Pointing your domain to your webhost or changing your domain nameservers should be the same thing I guess, but somehow they are not.. I have 2 domains, let's say: kids.com adults.com Both domains are registered with same domain registrar, hostmysite.com. I have hosting with another company webhostingpad.com which have next infos: -my server ip address (example) : 126.96.36.199 -namservers: ns1.webhostingpad.com , ns2.webhostingpad.com Kids.com has the nameservers set to ns1.webhostingpad.com and everything is working ok. Adults.com has the nameservers set to ns1.lnhi.net (hostmysite.com nameservers) but I've set option called "point to" (A host) to my server 188.8.131.52, and everything is working fine.. So, the question is, what's the difference? Why would I change nameservers if I can just point it to my server without need for sites to propagate through the web...?
