I bought a domain on network solutions and I bought hosting on fatcow.com. How can I point my domain on NS to fatcow? I don't want to transfer my domain name to fatcow because i like NS and it costs more money. I've tried editing the DNS in network solutions by entering the 2 nameservers

example:

ns1.fatcow.com
ns2.fatcow.com

but this doesn't seem to work. fatcow only gives me those 2 nameservers and a website IP. im not sure how NS knows to go to specific domain (like example.com) with only that information.

If you set your DNS on your domain! Just wait if your site doesn't load because maybe your ISP Cache didn't update yet! –  Sepahrad Salour May 10 '13 at 7:09

In your domain handle there is an option like DNS Management, Write your DNS on it one by one. –  Sepahrad Salour May 10 '13 at 7:12

Yes it's done! If your web site doesn't load after 48Hours contact to your WebHosting. Before that ask your friend to test your domain if he/she couldn't to load your website contact to your webhosting. –  Sepahrad Salour May 10 '13 at 7:21
