Question about Websites

1 Answer

I want to know, if I change my nameservers to another company, how will they know how to associate my domain name with my site?

I have a domain bought and maintained at one company. I have just built a site at another company, using the domain name they provided me. Now, I want my domain name to be associated with my site. So, the process is, apparently, to simply change the nameservers for my domain name to the new company's nameservers. But the new company must have hundreds if not thousands of sites, under their "nameservers". So, how in the heck would they know how to associate my particular domain name to my particular site??? I mean, if they gave me a nameserver that was a little more independant, with some codes or something that would help them identify my site, then I could understand, you change the nameservers to a unique nameserver, then bingo, my domain points to my site, but I am scared to simply change the nameservers for my domain name to their generic nameservers, perhaps my domain may just get lost in internet neverland???

Don't worry they will know it since you will specify the domain in your hosting account control panel.

Earning Money with Google Adsense for Domains


Google Adsense for Domains is a great way for your domains that are sitting "dead in the water" to collect revenue. When you purchase and do not use your domain, generally your registrar will place ad's and "park" your domain. What you don't know is that they are making money off of you not using your site.

One thing you have to understand is that unless you have a very popular domain name that generates a great deal of unique visitors you probably will not be able to retire right away. However, earning a few bucks a day doing nothing can't hurt, right?

Google Adsense has two forms of advertising available for you. You can create a website and host it through a hosting company. Doing this you will use Google Adsense for content and get a HTML code from Google to post ad's on your website. However, we are going to be discussing Google Adsense for Domains.This is basically domain parking, but your making money. Google will park your domain for free, and place several Google Adwords Ad's on the website. You earn money when someone visits the website and clicks on a link.

To begin you need to have an account with Google Adsense. For starters without an account you will need to create one using all of your information, including tax information, and then verify your account. Once you have your account set up, or you are signed into your account, click on the"My Ads" link on the navigational menu from your homepage. On the"My ads" page, look on the left-hand side of the page and click on the link that says "Domains." Again on the left-hand side of the page make sure the link "Hosted Domains" is selected and highlighted.

Once you are on the "Hosted Domain" site within your Google Adsense account what we want to do now is tell Google we are going to be using their services for your domains. Click on the button that says "+New Hosted Domain." Doing this will take you to a different page that will allow you to add your domains. If you have just one domain you would like to park, enter it in the box. If you have multiple domains you would like to park, list them each on a new line in the box provided. If you have an excel file that you wish to use to upload your domains, you may do so using the file upload box provided. Next, select which language you would like the content on your site to be. This should be targeted to the most people you think are going to be visiting your website. After choosing your language click the button "Add domains." A box will then pull up with instructions on what to do next. You will have a link that you can follow that will explain how to set up your domains to point them to Google's servers; something I will explain in the next paragraph.

Once we have your Google Adsense account set up and your domains added we are going to point your domains to Google's servers. This is basically telling the domain where to go when someone types the domain name into their address bar.We need to log-in to the registrar in which your domain is located, or where you purchased your domain.Don't be afraid to contact your registrar's support team if you are lost, they can walk you through this part. What we are wanting to do is update the "Name Servers" for that domain. Find the area of your account where you can tell them the new name servers for that domain. Once you have located them you will need to have four different name servers for Google. Clear out the current name servers and list the new ones separately as listed:

* ns1.googleghs.com
* ns2.googleghs.com
* ns3.googleghs.com
* ns4.googleghs.com

Do not add the " * " (Astrix symbol) with the addresses. Once you have added them click save and you should be ready to go. You should give it anywhere from 12-48 hours for all of the updates to take place.

You will notice when looking at your hosted domains with Google(Adsense.google.com>My Ads>Domains>Hosted Domains) you may notice your domains have a red error code next to them. After giving Google around 12-48hours after updating your name servers with your registrar, click "Request Verification". You will then notice that red error is now yellow and it is verifying all of the information and updates. After about five minutes refresh that page and you should see a green code that says "Active." Don't worry, if you do not see that give Google a day or so to catch up before contacting them for help.

Once your domain is "Active" click on your domain name in your account. You will be taken to another page where you can change your preferences for your parked domain, and even add keywords for targeted ad's. A custom channel is basically an easy way for you to organize all of your domains if you are posting many of them on your account. Keywords are telling Google what type of ad related content should be on your site. For instance, if you add a keyword "computer" you may get ad's pertaining to computers. It pertains to Erectile Dysfunction, and Erectile Dysfunction is a keyword I'm using on my account, so I have Erectile Dysfunction ad's on my page. Next you will chose if you would like a text only site, a graphic site, or you can allow Google to choose (Recommended). When you are finished click save, and you are done!

Google reports earnings with a delay. After someone clicks on your ad, it could take anywhere from 5 minutes to 1 hour before it shows up in your earnings.

****Warning**** Google is a very sophisticated company and has been around a few years. They know when you are cheating. Do not click on your own ad's even if using different computers at home or at work, or even having family and friends click on the links. There are ways for Google to tell by frequency of visits, location of visits, and much more. Doing this is basically considered stealing because you are costing someone else money for a fake interest.

How i create a website


You can create the website by first registering the Domain name,then host it,finally coding and designing to make a complete website...

Before choosing a domain name, consider the following useful tips that I am going to share with you:

Tip No. 1-Your domain name should be easy to remember, easy to spell, easy to pronounce, short and catchy.

Tip No. 2-Take note that your domain name may affect your search engine optimization strategy and this will affect your website ranking in the search engine.

Tip No. 3-You may pick your domain name based on your name, your product brand name, your company's name or based on the purpose or theme of your website.

Tip No. 4-If the domain name you want to purchase is no longer available, you can add a prefix (e.g tips, key, secrets, top, hot, fast, etc) or suffix (info, advice, guide, tool, etc) to the domain name. For example, you can add a prefix to your domain to get: "http://www.makemoneytipsonline.com" or to add a suffix to get "http://www.makemoneyonlineinfo.com".

Tip No. 5-It is advisable not to use hyphens/dashes to your domain name.

You can then host it,finally design it in attractive way so that visitors rating get hike and site get good rank in Search Engines,....

You can register the Domain name,host,design the website at here XnYnZ

I want to transfer domain name from one company to another I do not know how to do it?


When you register or transfer a domain to your website account, your server operator designates you as the owner of the domain and places the domain in its database for management and use with your website account.

If you want to transfer your domain name to another registrar, the first step is to unlock the domain name.

Note: To protect against fraudulent transfers, most servers place domains in a "Protected" or "Locked" status. Unfortunately, this can prevent legitimate transfers as well.

To unlock your domain name:

1. Log in to your website account.

2. Click My Domains.

3. Click the View All link. A list of all your domain names and the websites they are associated with appears.

Click on the plus sign next to a domain to expand the information box.
Click on the minus sign next to a domain to hide the information box.

4. Click edit domain lock for the domain name that you want to unlock. (If you do not see the edit domain lock link, you might need to click on the plus sign to expand the information box for your domain name.

5. Follow the on-screen prompts to unlock your domain name.

Once you have unlocked your domain name, the next step is to request your transfer authorization code. For your protection, all domain transfers require a unique authorization code; again, this is to prevent fraudulent transfers.

To request a transfer authorization code:

1. Log in to your website account.

2. Click My Domains.

3. Click the View All link. A list of all your domain names and the websites they are associated with will probably appear.

Click on the plus sign next to a domain to expand the information box.
Click on the minus sign next to a domain to hide the information box.

4. Click the email authorization code for the desired domain name. If you do not see the email authorization code link, you might need to click on the plus sign to expand the information box for your domain name.

5. Follow the on-screen prompts to have the authorization code sent to your administrative contact email address.

Once you've completed these two steps, you can initiate a domain transfer out of your website account through another third-party registrar. After you've found a company that meets your needs, you can submit a Change of Registrar Application through their website to initiate a transfer request for your domain name.

When you have transferred your domain name to your new registrar, please create a new help ticket, notifying us of this completion. Once we receive this confirmation, you server can remove the domain name from your website account, preventing any future billing.

This link will help you find other registrars:

http://www.icann.org/registrars/accredited-list.html


Notes:

Your server operator cannot remove the domain name upgrade from your website account unless they receive notification that your domain name has been successfully transferred out of itsservice.
Transferring your domain name to a new registrar does not constitute closure of your website account. If this is your intent, please remember that a closure request must be made separately.
If you have Domain Privacy enabled for your domain name, it will need to be disabled before the transfer can take place. Contact the operator directly so that your request canbe acted upon. Very important if you are on some type of automatic payment plan using a credit card.
