DNS Control Panel
the Internet-wide system for connecting domain names,
like customerdomain.com, to their respective web
servers. DNS translates domain names to their
corresponding IP Address. Without DNS, people would have
to visit their favorite web sites by typing in numbers
instead of their names.
A-Record, also called the "address record", is the most
important part of the DNS record. It is used to link
your domain to its corresponding IP Address
an NS Record?
NS-Record indicates the authoritative name server for
that domain. If there is some question about the IP
Address for a particular domain, other name servers know
where to ask for a definitive answer.
an MX Record?
Records specify what servers on the Internet are
responsible for handling e-mail sent to your domain. You
can assign more than one server with priority rankings,
so that you can still get mail if the primary server
fails. Successful use of an MX Record requires
cooperation with your ISP. They must properly configure
the mail server to receive e-mail from your domain. If
you do not have an ISP who can do this, try our e-mail
forwarding service instead.
E-mail forwarding allows you to have all e-mail sent to
your domain to be forwarded to a private e-mail address
that you specify. For example, mail sent to email@example.com,
could be configured to go to:firstname.lastname@example.org.
To do this, we set up your MX Record to point to one of
our mail servers, then configure the server to forward
mail to your account. The cost for this is 3 US dollars
per domain per year.
forwarding will automatically send visitors to a URL
that you specify whenever they type your domain name in
their browser. The URL (in the form http://www.otherdomain.com/directory/file.html)
can be cloaked or uncloaked. A cloaked URL will not show
up in the browser's location bar. Instead, your domain,
www.yourdomain.com, will appear in the browser location
bar. An uncloaked URL will be visible in the location
bar instead of your domain. The cost for uncloaked URL
forwarding is $1 per domain per year. Cloaked URL
forwarding is $3 per domain per year.
How can I
Register New DNS? Is there any charge?
DNS registration is free for resellers, while there are
some restrictions on the domain name used as name
1) The current registrar of the domain name is ARIAPAKE
2) The domain name should have 5-year extension from its
Example: Registration Date: 2001.1.1
Expiration Date: 2003.1.1
Current Date: 2002.3.20
Then you have to renew domain for 4 years more. That is
the expiration date should be extended to 2007.1.1.
