Trying to find DNS info for subdomain

Forgive me, I am completely new to hosting and name servers ect.

 

A friend owns tituscaderbank.com through Godaddy while I own hosting through calowensound.com, also on Godaddy. I am currently hosting his website at tituscalderbank.calowensound.com which I'd like to link to tituscalderbank.com, without the forwarding w/ masking so the URL looks clean and responsive/mobile css can actually be accessed.

 

The Name Servers I've been provided through my hosting is ns71/ns72.domaincontrol.com and his were set to ns17/ns18, however when I change his to ns71/72 I get no change. The website currently does not load anything - "Safari Can't Find The Server".

 

I am guessing I'm missing something, probably simple, but again I am brand new to this!

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated! 🙂

Re: Trying to find DNS info for subdomain

# In the Hosting account #

 

Add the domain and select the appropriate folder.

Find the appropriate IP address (looks like 123.456.78.90).

Plesk: https://www.godaddy.com/help/what-is-my-websites-ip-address-in-plesk-hosting-16113?

 

 

# In the domain account #

 

Set the nameservers back to default.

 

Edit the existing A record to point to the IP address from the hosting account.

Host: @

Points to: (hosting IP address)
