I recently bought a domain name from GTG hosting. I then set up an account with a local hosting service as I am in the UK. I chose to transer my GTG domain name to my local hosting service (easyspace). I recieved an email from easyspace saying that my account was up and ready to go. However my domain name didnt appear to transferred. I tried uploading my site and it kept failing. After a couple of days I searched their site and it said when transerring a domain to do a whois check to see if your domains dns settings match that of their server and if not, to change them to their dns settings. I did this, and after a day or 2 the dns settings had changed and my site appeared to upload successfully. However it is still not being displayed when you type the URL and instead you are redirected to the hosting website. I just checked my easyspace control panel and it says domain name 'awaiting transfer'.
Does anyone know what is going on here? Should I have left the dns settings alone after setting up my hosting account? I want my GTG domain name to work with easyspace hosting but I still want it to be registered under GTG because this is the cheapest way. As you may have guessed I am new to this website game so am getting a little confused now!
