    OK here goes a messed up situation question. I have a domain on company A that has free hosting with a ad banner and a domain and hosting (paid) with another. I want to switch these two around. I want to take Domain A and point it to Hosting B and Domain B to Hosting A.

    Do I change the DNS of each domain to that of the other? I am learning things as I go and this is new to me.

    Are they different hosting companies for each domain ?

    It is my opinion that it would be easier to move the free hosting domain over to your paid hosting as an addon domain.
    But obviously this is not what you are after

    You will have to change the primary domain name with each host, then re point the name servers to suit
    Then edit config files to suit the databases, and then fix email and ftp settings
