    Hello,

    Well, I'm just gonna come out with it right away, I know nothing about websites what so ever. I know mostly pcs which is still not a whole a lot.

    So i'll state my problem as best as i can describe it.

    Problem:

    Our website is www.letsgetcssclan.com, as you guys can see its not working, so that's where my problem starts. Now just before it stopped working, we had changed the dns name from www.letsgetcssclan.nuclearfallout.net to our current one, after this we had suspected many things including the mysql etc, and we have still yet to figure out the problem.

    Any information provided would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Lets Get Drunk

    P.S: As mentioned before it was working until we switched the dns name.

    I'm going to guess that there are linkages between your site and other servers, since just changing the DNS address shouldn't have caused this issue.

    Note that the "new" name still resolves to the old name. If I click the link: http://www.letsgetcssclan.com/ I get the following error.

    In addition to that, the two addresses appear to be in widely divergent locations.

    How you should have it is, that you have the site where you hosting the domain http://www.letsgetcssclan.com/, you should then change the name servers with registrar where you registered the domain name to the name servers that your server hosting uses.

    Then you add the site as a domain to your hosting account.

    eg.

    I registered techmonkeys.co.uk with 123reg I then set up a hosting account with tsohost.co.uk, I then changed my name servers on 123reg to ns1.tsohost.co.uk and ns2.tsohost.co.uk, then I set it up as primary domain through TSOHost's cpanel.

    Wait 24 hours and bingo it is on.
