Modifying DNS information FAQ


What is DNS?
DNS is an acronym that stands for Domain Name Service. Each domain is assigned a unique numeric address and DNS servers takes care of locating and routing information to the domains so that the world can find you. When you fill out your registration form, we give you the option to park your DNS with us or to specify your own DNS or the DNS of your hosting service. If you already have a website or have found an ISP to host your website, you should use your ISP's DNS servers when registering your domain name.
What is domain parking?
Parking allows you to use our DNS (Domain Name Service) server to hold your domain name until you are ready to use it. A DNS server is required to register a domain name and it is usually your ISP or web hosting provider. But if you do not have an ISP or are not planning to use your domain name yet, you can park your domain with us. To park your domain name, simply leave the DNS information as default when you register and your domain will automatically be parked. This service is free and you can park your domain with us for as long as you wish.
