    Hi all,
    I have a domain name and the current set up is that the MX record points to my domain name provider's mail server, and the A record currently refers to another web host...
    I would like to change the A Record's IP address to x10, and then (I guess... kinda new to all this!) add my domain to the list of Parked Domains? First day using cPanel and there are many options :eek4:
    Also, is there any reason to keep both the www and public_html directories?

    Congrats on being top of the www.free-webhosts.com list of free web hosts btw :)

    Sharky :biggthump
    Edit:
    Ok, I pinged the x10hosting subdomain name I registered, and have changed the A record at 1&1 (my domain name provider) to point to that... I hope this is the right thing to do!

    Sounds like you got it right, let us know if it doesn't work.

    Hmm, I've not done it right. That, or something has to be done to /etc/ips.remotedns ...

    Comes up with an error from "park wrapper":

    Any advice?

    Edit:

    There's something on the account page to use own domain, however there is some kind of error so clicking on Confirm Domain doesn't do anything.

    Edit:
    Hmm... 1and1 have finally finished updating the IP address, and it shows a "Your account is suspended" page.... (My account is not suspended :)) http://74.86.133.216/

    What's the domain? I'll manually add it for you.
