I've got www.mastersound.co.uk with Heart Internet. I want to make it point to www.merseybeat.net which is on Yola. What 'address' do I enter for the 'A' and 'CNAME' records on Heart Internet. Do I need the nameservers for Yola for www.merseybeat.net and if so, what are they? What format is the 'address' I need to enter on Heart Internet's transfer page?

Hi Gop
I've already read this. When the CNAME asks for the address - what is it? I entered 'www.mastersound.co.uk' and the relvant numbers in the box. The address must be wrong - what is the 'address' please?
Give me an example of a CNAME sheet and the format in which the answers are inserted.

Hi Mal,

Are you only wanting to be able to access your web-site www.mastersound.co.uk as a link through your yola built site www.merseybeat.net?

If so you don't need to change anything at all with your DNS management. To make a link from one web-site to another is totally different it's a very simple piece of HTML.

Tell me what you want to do as an outcome. The vocabulary with DNS management is peculiar and what seems obvious isn't :)
