    First you are saying you did the domain forwarding already, then you are asking how to do it?! Can you explain this please?

    naw there is a place on there to add the nameserver so i put in my ip address named as ns.jac0b.com and then there is a feature called domain forwarding to where you can forward it to any place you wanted but i don't know how to setup it up because when i do setup it said page can't be dispalyed so i need to know how to setup the ns.jac0b.com

    thanks

    Sorry, but there is a general misunderstanding between the two of us.
    there is a place on there to add the nameserver so i put in my ip address named as ns.jac0b.com
    Where is this place? A control panel for your domain? For your host? For your web server?
    Did you put the IP OR the hostname there? (right answer: IP) Was the field called "nameserver" or "host"? (aka "NS" record or "A" record; right answer: HOST; you donīt want "NS")
    there is a feature called domain forwarding
    This does not work with the above. These two functions are mutually exclusive...
    page can't be dispalyed
    Problem: Internet Explorer hides the real error from you. Go to "Extras / Internet Options / Advanced" and disable "Short HTTP error messages". Now tell us: Which error code does it send? Is it a 404 ("NOT FOUND") or is it a "HOST UNREACHABLE"?
