Domain parking help
« on: September 09, 2008, 04:32:12 am »
I've been trying to park a .co.cc domain with my forum. First I set it up to work with FreeDNS(freedns.afraid.org). Once that worked, I created two A records, ns1.___.co.cc and ns2.___.co.cc that are pointed to 74.54.239.41(it's on server 2). Then I added ns1.___.co.cc and ns2.___.co.cc at the bottom of the list of parent DNS servers. When I point my browser to the co.cc domain, it originally went to a create new forum page and now shows a freedns message. The IP address that I pointed the nameservers to gives a no forum found message.

Am I doing something wrong or is it impossible to use a co.cc domain?

Pretty positive you can't park a co.cc domain.      Note you mentioned   .co.cc  ?     Smf has mentioned it won't work with two dots in the last part of the domain name.
