I recentley bought a domain name and 12 months hosting with a US compnay called hostlinkexpress. But as of last week their servers have been down and I cannot get in contact with them.

I have moved my site onto exetels free web space but I would like to know how I can point my domain name to my exetel webspace.

cheers!

pointing it to anywhere else will require you to login to wherever you purchased the domain from and update the nameservers to point elsewhere, if this is the same place that is hosting the site now then you'll have to get onto them before you can relocate anywhere

You can't point a domain name directly to the free web server, unless you have some sort of url redirection dns. You can use Exetel paid hosting for your web site however.
