Please explain to me how to point a domain to a DNS server. For the first time I want to try to host a website on the Internet, I registered at, created a domain and uploaded files there ...
it says to me that my domain is not directed to DNS servers ... I don't know how to do it.


DNS servers must be provided by the hosting provider from which you buy hosting. If the hosting company has provided you with its DNS, then you need to register them for your domain from the registrar.

If DNS was not provided to you, then you simply direct your domain to the registrar's DNS and direct the website by A record to the ip address of your new server (the hosting provider should provide you with ip).
It is necessary to register in the DNS zone of the domain. It all depends on the control panel. In which panel are you adding the website?

In the domain control panel at your registrar, you should enter those server parameters that were given to you by your hoster. In the control panel, they are usually in the most visible place.
If your registrar and hoster - one person, everything is even easier. All settings will be set automatically. Well, or press the appropriate button.
If your hoster does not provide mail, or you do not want to use the mail service provider, then you will need to do a little wizardry with MX-accounts. They will provide provider, which will have your mail. In the control panel you write a short text entry. That's all.
Everything is very simple.  :)
