I have my domain at a different registrar and host with Network Solutions. When I try to add a CNAME to my the DNS supplied by NetSol, it only lets me alter DNS records of urls registered with them. I can't affect these records with Total DNS thru my registrar because all domain records point to NetSol. Anyone knw how I can add a CNAME Record for my subdomain? BTW, I had no problem pointing my subdomain to the proper folder on my hosting account.

When you have your domain registered at another registrar there is no functionality to edit the Network Solutions NameServers assigned to that domain. If you need to add custom DNS records, you must use your registrar's DNS and point it to your Network Solutions hosting package using A-Records/CNAMES and then make any modifications needed.

Thanx Corey. I Was afraid of that. So, I guess I will have to clear my NetSol DNS servers from the registrar, use the registrars Total DNS controls, and manually add the A Records, CNAME Records and MX Records.
