Hi squidgey,

Lets see if I can help here,

First of all the definitions of each one:

DNS Service - An Internet service that translates domain names into IP addresses. Basically converts the domain name (yoursite.com) to an IP address 213.321.123.332 for example.

Domain Name Forwarding - The forwarding of one domain name's website to another website URL or IP address. This allows client to direct viewer to different website.


Basically, if you wish to forward a person from one site to another for example - forward a person from your freewebs.com site to your GoDaddy site you need domain name forwarding.

Hope this helps

You can also set up subdomains like

forum.yourDomain.com
directory.yourDomain.com
blog.yourDomain.com
news.yourDomain.com

etc.
