Unless you have a dedicated IP address you cannot pull up your website using one. Shared hosts will put hundreds or thousands of sites on a single IP address. And as you can see the IP address itself will default to some page that is the default one for that server.

If you take all the right steps, there isn't a lot to worry about. 301 all existing pages (This is the major step!) Set all you canonical tags right (This is your 2nd most important step) You will lose a little PageRank for the redirect, but we're talking minimal amount here, nothing a little time won't fix. Just read up on how to migrate sites (which ...

As you already said, you just have to wait. If you are 100% sure you setup your nameservers correctly and your registrar can confirm this, then you'll just have to wait. :-)

The first virtual host directive is the default "catch all." Any unrecognized host names get handled by whichever virtual host directive comes first. The solution to your problem is to create a default virtual host directive that prints out an error. I have one that I use. I've previously posted it in this answer 404 Not Found -- Hostname Not ...

For starters, I don't think that your domain name is spammy in terms of SEO but most importantly the words you use in your domain don't have much SEO value anymore. Here is a very insightful and data driven article on URL length and URL keywords from Search Engine Journal. Regarding SPAM. I would check to make sure that your domain is not blacklisted. ...

Being one who has a similar site, I would have thought who.is or whois.com were the most accurate. Mine is different in that I capture the information at the time of an attack, spam, or other similar event. However, most other sites will re-query the whois data when the page is accessed assuming that there is a measure to ensure that the same whois data is ...

Google always prefers original webpages rather than duplicated ones. https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/66359?hl=en Google tries hard to index and show pages with distinct information. This filtering means, for instance, that if your site has a "regular" and "printer" version of each article, and neither of these is blocked with a noindex ...

If your host takes care of the DNS when you've changed your nameservers, it should be fine. Changing the 'A' record in your control panel wouldn't have any effect because your nameservers don't point to them anymore...

Nameservers are enough and better. In fact, in case your web hosting changes your IP address (because you haven't a static IP and you're on a shared host), thanks to nameserver you wouldn't need to change record A.

No. You do not need at webmaster@ e-mail account. The ONLY e-mail address you need to have related to any domain is a contact e-mail address, and it can be completely different than the domain that is registered. postmaster@, webmaster@, administrator@, info@, etc... ... these are all legacy standards that were there as a uniform, convenient method to reach ...

The webmaster@ convention is simply a device where people might be contactable through a generic email address. It has nothing to do with using or not using email on a domain. My experience is that it was more widely used a few years ago than these days because it was thought to be a method to contact domain owners. I the past I would set up webmaster@, ...

You are right. A dedicated IP is required to identify a website as in Shared host it is impossible. If you opt for that, you have to bear some extra hosting cost, but a dedicated IP can help you to access the website better.

This is a VERY VERY small aspect you're looking at for SEO. There are many more things you can spend your time on as this does not generally have that much of an impact on SEO. Look at either Moz or Search Metrics' ranking factors to see how far down this is in importance. Technically length of URL is on here but not whether separating words is highly ...

Isn't this the sort of thing almost every domain registrar offers? For example http://www.enom.com/domainsearch/search-results.aspx?sld=stackoverflow&tld=ninja&searchedDomain=stackoverflow

If these domains are the same where two are, aliased to, or parked under the one main domain, then yes. Aliased or Parked domains are domains that you own, but which do not contain any content. Instead, they point to the contents of another domain or subdomain on your account. This means the index page is the same page for all 3 of these domains. ...

Right now, on azure portal, there's a new buy domain in preview mode, but I cannot find any documentation and this is really new, so this may be comming soon.

The original answers did not address this exactly, so here goes. The www2 is a result of DNS or router load balancing. It is one of a set of web servers defined this way where www3 or www4 might also exist. Any subsequent request will always be with the original server even after a period of time as to maintain session state. There are other ways of doing ...

This is an old question, but nowadays when you register a .com you will receive a verification email and if you don't click through the link within 15 days, your domain will be suspended without any further notification.
