Question about Computers & Internet

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.

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:

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.

I dont know what is domain


A Microsoft Windows Active Directory Domain is a directory service for a computer network. Think of it like a phonebook for all your companies computers, users, and printers to name a few. Active Directory provides a central authentication point for all users/computers in the building and controls network policies. This makes network management for multiple computers and users MUCH easier.

For more information, see Microsoft's Official Active Directory site.

I AM NEW TO THE INTERNET... I DO HOUSE AND/OR PET SETTING FOR CUSTOMERS IN THE STAMFORD, CT. AREA 1) HOW DO I GET MY NAME AND # ON THE PET SITING PAGE 2) HOW DO I GET A HOME SITE PAGE OR PAGES BUILT AND...


1a. Need to know what the site name for the Pet Sitting is.

2. You can build your own site, there are plenty of free web-site building programs out there - and you can use MSWord (if you have the office suite)
a. Once the site is built (made or designed) - you will need a place to "host" your site. There are SEVERAL free hosting sites out there - I would suggest not to use a site that force site ads, for you never know what ad is going to be forced on your site, and many ads are not appropriate for family viewing. There are many free hosting sites WITHOUT ads - example of one is http://www.110mb.com/ . Where your domain name will be **example - http://housesitting.110mb.com *** <-- that is NOT a real site - just what your site MIGHT be.
b. Now, if you want your OWN domain name **example - http://www.housesitting.com *** (again NOT a real site, just an example) - you will have to buy that domain name.
c. After you buy a domain name, you will want to host your site, this is not as expensive as you might think - I would strongly suggest you purchase your domain name and hosting from the same company - like ** http://godaddy.com** <-- only an example, not pushing any company over another.

This sounds complicated, but, once you start you will find it is not that hard. Just take one step at a time.

If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to ask.
