Pointing Earthlink Hosted Website to Registered Domain Name

Hello,

   Currently I am hosting my website with earthlink.. The address is something like "home.earthlink.net/~myname"    I have just registered a domain name and I would like to have it point at my web address hosted at earthlink.  I can't even seem to get the ip for my extension off of home.earthlink.net .   How would I go about doing this?  Also would I need to find out from them the DNS servers or something?? If anyone knows all the information for what I would need to do, I would greatly appreciate it.

Going to the control panel of earthlink  hosting , can you not find the ip address there for home.earthlink.net

Since yours is a subdomain you may not be able to find the exact ip address.

Actually what I did had fixed it and I just wasn't patient enough.  For the pts you got any idea how I can keep a static website address in the address bar?

what do you mean by static webaddress in the address bar

it depends on your hosting plan.but generally i donot see any reason why they might change your address

http://www.namecheap.com - you can use free forwarding.  So it loads up that long subdomain.earthlink.net/~ webpage inside of a frame that takes up the whole page when you type in your domain.  This is a good alternative if you do not have DNS servers for it.  http://www.proredirect.com also provides this if your Registrar does not.
hope that helps,
