Tictail is a popular (free) online store set-up management for small business and start-up companies. The algorithm automatically assigns a sub-domain related to the users business store, and you can add a custom domain to remove it. YouStable is a web hosting and domain registration company, and you can add the newly purchased domain to Tictail.
The web hosting already points the basic DNS, so you have to remove it from the account. The DNS pointing to the domain is an essential part of the bonding between domain and web hosting. Tictail is a mediator offering one web store services, and they do not provide documentation on BasicDNS, PremiumDNS, backup DNS, and FreeDNS.

How much time DNS linking takes?
The domain > Tictail (Web hosting) configuration takes plenty of time, and no one can provide accurate timing. Usually, the new collaboration takes around one minute to one hour to complete, so we recommend the users to wait for at least one hour.
