2 domains, Plusnet webspace. change IPSTAG or use DNS?

Hi.
I have my own domain which I brought via plusnet and is in use.  I also have brought another domain els where, and was trying to transfer it in so I can use my PLusnet webspace for both Domain names.  As far as im aware from what iv read I can have upto 5 for free?
During the transfer in, regestering, It  asked for me to change my IPSTAG name with my domain host, but that will cost me £10.  It says on my domain host account that I dont need to change my IPSTAG but use Name Servers instead.
I copied the name server into my Domian host account, what should I do now to have my new domain directed to its own folder on my webspace?
Do I still need to change my IPSTAG in order to use my webspace.   This is all new to me.
Thanks.

If you change the IPSTAG to Plusnet then the hosting and registration will be with +net. When it comes the time to re-register the domain it will cost you around £45 via +net.
If you leave the registraton where it is it will more than likely cost you a lot less to re-register.
By just changing the name servers to point to +net you can transfer the domain into +net for "hosting only" at no cost.
+nets help page for this is at https://portal.plus.net/support/domains_and_dns/hosting/domain_hosting.shtml

FWIW I think you still have to raise a support ticket after the DNS change, unless the "Domain names" tool on the portal has got a lot smarter since I last moved a domain.
