I setup a webhosting space on 1and1.  I wish to point my existing site to the 1and1 webspace.

Any idea how to do this?  1and1 is pretty good about keeping this a secret.

You get the nameservers from 1and1 and enter them in your Domain account.

Since every host is different in the details, all I can really tell you is to login to your 1and1 account and find the nameserver info, where ever they have it, and then log into to your Domain registrar account and find the place to put that info.  There should be at least two nameservers.  Should be in the form of "nsxx.1and1.com" where the 'xx' is a number.  Maybe you could call 1and1 and get the nameservers for your hosting account.

The issue is that a buddy of mine owns web address and the registrar is 1and1 while I own the hosting account (a 1and1 account).
1and1 does not allow one 1and1 owner the ability to own the name and a different 1and1 owner to own the hosting package.

Thanks anyway...

That's a bit bizarre!  I wonder why they care?

There are several reasons I won't use 1and1.  I have one customer that uses them and they do things I don't like.  Like error messages that have links to Other People's pages!

I find that GoDaddy isn't much better.
