I purchased a domain through Moniker: mysamplewebsite.com.
I would like to have it hosted through freehosting.com.
I would like to have a subdomain (sub.mysamplewebsite.com) point to my synology NAS (mynas.synology.me).
Expiration Date: 01/15/2019
Nameserver: ns1.freehosting.com, ns2.freehosting.com
DNS settings for mysamplewebsite.com:
Redirect: Not Set
Link with IP (A/AAAA Record): Nothing Set
SRV None Set
NAPTR None Set
CAA None Set
TTL 300 sec (Previously 28800 sec)
Nothing set for the following:
Own Nameservers (Glue Records)
WARNINGS: "Currently you are not using our Nameservers. Please note that changes in your DNS zone can only be made when our nameservers are used. Click on "Whois/Nameservers" and select "Standard Nameservers" to use our Nameservers. Configure Nameservers"
So, based on the warning, does that mean that if i choose to host my website through freehosting.com, I can not use moniker to point my subdomain to my synology NAS? If so, it looks like I'd have to pay a one time fee for a subdomain through freehosting.com.
I can't get sub.mysamplewebsite.com to work from my phone, home computer, or friend's computer (on different ISP).
mysamplewebsite.com works from my phone, but not my home computer, and not from my friend's computer -- so I'm thinking it's a DNS issues that is still in progress?
From the Moniker dashboard do I need to change the DNS settings for mysamplewebsite.com so that it's Linked with an IP (A/AAAA record) or is just using their nameservers good enough? I can't seem to find an IP address from freehosting.com to use.
Really, if anyone has a good YouTube tutorial video that can help a newbie through this process I'd really appreciate it.
