Domain Name Service
Domain Name Service (DNS) is the basic "directory assistance"
service of the Internet. DNS resolves domain names to the IP address
(number) assigned to a specific server (computer) on the Internet.
In order to use our domain name service, you will need to have a static
IP address and a server that is running any services that you want to use
(web, ftp, e-mail, etc.) The services should be configured to respond to
requests for your domain. For example, mail servers will usually reject
e-mail addressed to domains that the mail server is not configured to
accept mail for.
Name Service Features
The following features are included in the basic name service:
Wildcard Domain Resolution - by default, all domains are set up as wildcards
(i.e. *.example.com), so
any.host.name.at.your.example.com will resolve to the IP
address of your server. You will be able to use hostnames like
mail.example.com, etc. without further
configuration. Note that you would need to have the appropriate services (web server, ftp
server, etc.) active on your server.
MX Record - by default, a single MX record will resolve to the IP address of
your server. The MX record tells mail systems where to deliver all e-mail addressed to your
domain name. In order to receive e-mail, you would need to have a mail server up and running
on your server. You may configure as many MX records as you need.
Zone Updates - you may review or update your zone file 24 hours a day via the
online management system. Unlimited zone updates include A, CNAME, MX, TXT and SRV records.
Competitive Transfer Discount!
We will waive the setup fee if you transfer an existing domain name from a
forwarding service, hosting service, or ISP. The domain must currently be resolvable in DNS.
If you think you qualify for the discount, don't forget to mention it in the special
instructions section of the service signup form.
