Pointing a Domain Name

I've bought a domain name through Heart and want it to point at a database on a site hosted with Streamline.

Is this possible at all.

The 'site' is a word press blog installed on the 3rd of 5 db's but when I set up a framed re-direct on Heart to the db it doesn't resolve.

I can access the blog by putting mysite.com/wordpress/ into the address bar but when I put that same address into the Heart re-direct it just defaults to a Heart holding page.

I've already been advised to modify the htaccess file but I'm not sure how to go about that.

you have to redirect the dns servers.

I tried every option available including that one but it never really worked.

It did at first but then soon after I just got a 404. I suspect that Streamline were blocking it because they look on at as an external server accessing theirs.

I have now bought some space on Dream Hosting and the name points to them without any problem.
