Your host name also needs to be added to /etc/hosts in 127.0.0.1 section. If you haven't rebooted since editing /etc/hostname you also need to set the hostname using the hostname command. This normally happens at bootup from /etc/hostname. Here is a script that I use to make sure the host name is set correctly on my Ubuntu ec2 instance: #!/bin/sh set -e ...

Registrars are the companies that actually buy licenses to sell TLD's at a registry (those who manage the DNS server for a TLD) such as Verisign for .com. Domain resellers, often hosting companies, resell these TLD's from a registrar as it's much cheaper - otherwise hosting companies would have to buy licenses to sell TLD's themselves, which is extremely ...

A domain name registrar must be accredited by a generic top-level domain (gTLD) registry and/or a country code top-level ...

If you want thingeroo.com to point to somedude.github.io/thingeroo then this would require github, in this case, to cooperate by acting as a proxy. Fortunately github actually does this! All you have to do is: Specify an A Record for thingeroo.com that points to the appropriate github server (192.30.252.154 or 192.30.252.153) Add a CNAME file in your ...

To troubleshoot this and get the data I needed, I just sent some test emails to my gmail account and found from the message header that all outbound traffic (for me) is coming from "mout.perfora.net" and put that in for my spf line shown below. You will need to verify the last hop server for yourself though. ntxbg.org. 1800 IN TXT "v=spf1 ...

To get a website up at a domain name you need to follow these steps: Register the domain name. At the registrar, point the NameServer (NS) records to the domain name server (DNS) that will be handling the domain. On the name server, add records to resolve the host name to your server. Configure your web server to handle requests that come in for that ...

The answer is no. Cloudflare works by receiving all your traffic when you setup your DNS's to theirs, meaning all the traffic passes through their servers and no separation is made between the homepage and the rest of the application. To load only certain parts of your site through Cloudflare and others don't, what you can do is create some type of ...

I'll be quoting wikipedia on this, but I believe in this case the information is reliable: WHOIS servers operated by Regional Internet Registries (RIR) can be queried directly to determine the Internet Service Provider responsible for a particular resource. The records of each of these registries are cross-referenced, so that a query to ARIN ...

Domain registrars are required to have certain infrastructure elements such as networks, DNS servers, support, and so on. Resellers resell through registrars and are not required to have anything much at all. Think of a reseller as an affiliate.

I am not sure why you need to shutdown you site, but if that includes giving up your domain name or host, then no there is nothing you can do. However, if you can retain your domain name and still host it somewhere, then a blanket 301 redirect will preserve some of your back link status and preserve the domain site metrics. If you can redirect some or as ...

CNAME records don't have anything to do with redirecting HTTP requests. They're for host names. You can't use a CNAME record for this purpose. Fortunately, almost all domain registrars provide a service that will allow you to redirect requests to your domain to somewhere else. They do this by setting your DNS A records to their web servers where a ...

f I have launched a site www.xyz.com would that record appear in a whois server even if I didn't explicitly want it ? If so how ? How would the whois server get the details of my site ? Basically, WHOIS is a tool with which you can look up data stored by ICANN, which is normally the data of the registrar of the domain name and of course who registered ...
