Frequently Asked Questions !
 
1. General Questions
 
a. What is a domain name, and why should I register one?
A domain name is the way of securing your place on the World Wide Web! Domain names are a system of simple Internet addresses that are translated by the Domain Name System (DNS) into the numeric addresses (Internet Protocol (IP) numbers) used by a network. A domain is placed into one of multiple hierarchies, or the label that precedes the "dot," giving a description of the group or individual using the domain name. Simply put, without a domain name, you or your business have no identity on the World Wide Web. By registering a domain you are able to create and expand the presence you and your business have on the Internet.

4. Standard domain name management
 
a. How do I set-up URL forwarding?
URL Forwarding allows you to use an easy to remember or different web-address for your particular domain. When a web browser uses this different web-address they are automatically directed to your primary website or domain by using the process of URL forwarding.
To Enable URL Forwarding utilize the following steps:
1. Log into your Name.com account.
2. At the “Account Management” page, click on the domain name that you\'d like to manage.
3. On your "Domain Management” page, look to the Control Panel on the right of your screen, click “URL Forwarding.”
4. Be sure to read the requirements for URL Forwarding listed on this page, now click “Enable URL forwarding for YOURDOMAIN.COM.”
5. Once you are directed enter the full web address to which you wish to direct your domain name.
- A good idea when doing this, to prevent any typos, is to visit the site you wish to forward your domain to in a separate browser. Now, take the address from the new browser, copy this address. Now Paste it into your URL Forwarding window once you are sure that is the correct forwarding location.

(Please note: you cannot point a third level domain name, abc.abcd.com for instance, in this way.) 6. Choose, using the drop-down menu, whether to employ “masked” or “redirect” forwarding.
- Note that "Masked" forwarding will not indicate in the frame of a web browser that a user has moved from your domain to third party website. Redirect will.

7. Optional: Enter a “Page Title,” which will appear in the browser frame, and “Mega Tags.”
8. Press “Update.”
That’s it! Your URL forwarding setting has now been established. Please make sure your domain name is using our default name servers. If it is not, you must exchange the servers currently in place with our servers for URL forwarding to function properly. (Remember: changing host servers will delay the start of URL forwarding by 24 hours.)

b. How do I set-up e-mail forwarding?

On the “Manage domain name” screen, click “Email Services.”
Next, in the “Email Forwarding” box, create your desired email forwarding address, and enter the recipient address in the “This Address” slot.
Press “Submit.”
That’s it! Email sent to your email forwarding address will now reach your recipient address.

Please make sure your domain name is using our default name servers. If it is not, you must exchange the servers currently in place with our servers for email forwarding to function properly. (Remember: changing servers will delay the start of email forwarding by 24 hours.)

d. Why is my domain name resolving to a parking page?

Our parking page may contain third-party advertisements, links to other products and services offered by Name.com, and interfaces to other web pages, including search engines. You will not receive notice regarding the additional content located on our parking page, and such content may be modified at any time.

b. How many name servers should I have?

Note: you can create as many name servers you\'d like, but each server must resolve to a unique IP address.

Also note: the “Register a Name Server” and “Modify a Name Server” pages will not list the name servers you have created.

e. How do I modify a name server once it has been created?
Log into your Name.com account.
At the "Hello"? page, click on the relevant domain name.
On the "Manage domain name"? screen, click "Modify a Name Server."?
Next, enter the prefix for your server (e.g. NS1, DNS1, etc.), select "Delete IP from Name Server,"? and type in the old IP address. Press "Continue."?

f. What is a Host record?
A host record is an electronic set of instructions attached to a domain\'s name servers that signals the location of the domain. By creating a host record, a customer directs traffic to the correct location of the domain. A host record is established when the "URL forwarding" option is used and points the domain towards our forwarding server, which in turn points the domain towards its location on the web. A host record can also be created without using the "URL forwarding" option. If a host record is created in such a way, the domain will point to a particular IP address without masking the location of the address.

Last Updated: 2005-11-14
Top
 
g. Why create a host record, instead of using URL (masked) forwarding?
A host record generated creates a direct channel from the domain name to its intended IP address, without the mediation of our forwarding server. Thus, a host record that is not incorporated into our URL forwarding service will not mask the pointing of the domain. Customers may find this useful if the location of their domain is directly related to their domain name.

h. What is a MX record?
A MX records is an electronic set of instructions that routes email to your email server.

Last Updated: 2005-11-14

i. How do I add a DNS (MX, A, TXT, CNAME, etc.) record?
Go to Name.com, and login to your account.
At the "Hello" page, click on your domain name, listed across the bottom of the page.
On the "Manage domain name" screen, choose the "DNS Management" option, listed on the left side of the page.
Next, on the "DNS Management - Record" screen, click the applicable "Add a record" link.
Fill out the empty fields with the appropriate information. (If you do not know what to enter, ask your web host, IT department, etc.)
Press "Submit."
After doing this last step, the page should refresh, reading across the top of the page: "A record has been added for yourdomainname.com." To verify the creation of the record, click "Continue managing domain." You should now see your newly created DNS record listed on the "DNS Management - Record" screen.

Please note: Your domain name must be using our name servers, ns1.name.com and ns2.name.com, for your newly created DNS record to work. To check whether your domain is using our servers, click "Edit Name Servers" on the "Manage domain name" screen. Under "Current Name Servers," you should see our pair listed. If not, you will need to remove the servers currently in place and add ours. If you need to make this change, please be aware that your DNS record will go "live" 24 hours after the change has been made.

b. Do you support ASP?
We do not support any sort of server side ASP. Any ASP features that do work are client side (i.e. handled by the browser). A majority, if not all, of the ASP client side functions only work in Internet Explorer. This is due to the fact that many of the ASP functions use windows libraries that are tied into the browser. For server side functionality we recommend php which is provided with our hosting. For client side functionality we recommend javascript which is supported in all major browsers.

In response to this query, your credit card institution authorizes the use of and reserves these funds—directly within your account.
Please Note: at this stage, the funds have yet to leave your account, and will not leave your account unless the next step is completed, either automatically by our computers or manually by our service personnel. If the next step is not completed, for whatever reason, the allotted funds will remain in your account. However, they will not be made available for your use for, typically, 4-5 days. Your bank will "freeze"? the funds for this length of time in order to accommodate any potential delay in the completion of the transaction.

If we determine that the purchase is good, that is, not fraudulent or otherwise defective, we remove the funds from your credit card account and end the transaction.
To clarify: your purchase was interrupted between stages 2 and 3 listed above. Your funds have been authorized and set aside, but they remain in your account. Your credit card billing statement, either the online or paper form, may indicate that these funds have been used, but they have not. Within 4-5 days, the attempted purchase should drop from your billing record, and the authorized funds should return to your general pool of credit.

e. My transaction failed, why did PayPal take my money?
When you choose PayPal as your payment option on Name.com, you are transferred from the Name.com billing page to the PayPal.com site in order to make the payment. At the end of your session with PayPal.com, you must click the "Continue"? button in order to return to Name.com and complete your order.

Your order may have failed to complete because you did not press the "Continue"? button at the end of your session with PayPal. Please be sure to follow all instructions each time you use PayPal on our website, or this same failure will occur.

If you send your PayPal email receipt for the order to www.name.com.
