This is driving me nuts, because I know I'm missing something simple. I've read numerous articles/posts about how to point (not transfer) your domain to a new web host. They all say to change the name server settings at your old host, so here is what I did:
On old host (1and1.com) changed the name server settings to those of my new host (inmotionhosting.com) like below:
Domain name : mydomain.com Name server 1: ns.inmotionhosting.com Name server 2: ns2.inmotionhosting.com
... and confirmed this is active (did it a couple days ago)
This is where every post/article I've found stops. They imply this is all that needs to be done.
But how does the new host know to point the domain to my account, and the directory in my account I want it work from??
There's go to be something else to be done - just pointing to the generic name servers of the new host can't be all there is to it.
Thanks in advance...I'm bewildered...
