    I need help please.
    On my website I'm trying to make it have its own domain name and I messed up when I bought it I forgot to configure my domain's DNS to point to a certain IP:... Is there anyway I can fix it without buying another domain..??
    Thanks

    Quote:If I understand your question - the answer is that one has nothing to do with the other. Domain names can be bought through many services and are owned by you. There doesn't have to be an actual website associated with a domain name. Some people just buy up domain names and never have a website.

    Where you "park" your website is your domain server. It's the server that your website must be uploaded to for storage and viewing. So when someone types in "www.yourdomainname.com" it takes them to your site.

    So, no you don't have to buy more domain names.
