Hi,

Id like to know if I can use my registered domain name with your free plan.
I guess dns have to be adjusted so that you can host my site on your servers with my domain name.
Is it feasible ?

Thank you !

yes its totally possible to use your registered domain here. If you change you dns with your registrars to

dsn1.freehostia.com
dns2.freehostia.com

and add your domain name via the control panel it should just work.

No, you can host existing domains for free. There is no additional fee if you want to add your domain in your Control Panel.

Add it as hosted domain. This you can do using "Hosted domains" menu of Control Panel.

Hi.

I have one problem, and I hope you can help me. I have free account on freehostia.com, and I have two registered domains, and want to host them with my free account. I think that is possible, but, I have problem with that...

I already add them in hosted domains, but my DNS settings are incorrect, and I don't know how to change settings for those domains.

If anybody can tell me what I should do, to solve my problem and enable this two sites???

Thanks...

I have a similar problem. I've registered my domains with Freehostia, having previously purchased them elsewhere. I've never used them anywhere else, and I cannot see anything on the sites where I purchased them that will enable me to change anything without taking out a hosting package with them! Maybe I'm being thick! :lol:

(I was relieved to read about the transfer thingy being simpler and free, as I, too, was confused by that one!! :lol: )

Hello vanessa,
You need to contact the registrar of the domains and ask them to update the name servers to dsn1.freehostia.com
and dsn2.freehostia.com. The change require up to 24 hours propagation period. Then you can host the domains in the account with us and create or upload the websites.
