Hi Uzes,

Enter just ns1.worldsecuresystems.com as nameserver (without the IP).

Let us know if that works.

Thanks,
Florin

Hi

It can take upto 24 hours to update the DNS information throughout the Internet. So if you have done it recently, then please wait, if it was long ago, let us know the URL
