Lets explain a few things first: Nameserver records are typically maintained by the domain registrar. (i.e. who the domain-name was purchased from.) If you don't own the domain-name directly... you might have a battle on your hands to get ownership back. It is not unheard of for shady companies to hold your domain-name hostage. Most registrars will ...

Absolutely a domain can be owned by a organisational entity as opposed to an individual person, this in fact the most common type of domain name registration and it isn't a specific service that is needed for it. When you register for the domain name most registrars will ask you if it is for an individual or for a business and will provide a field for you ...

Follow the guidelines provided by Google to move your blog to a new domain, using the Change of address tool of Search Console and moving it won't have any bad effects on your site's SEO.

You cannot redirect via DNS. That is not what DNS does. You would have to define www.domain.com on your new server and potentially point the site directory to www1.domain.com to make what you are doing work. BUT STOP! Don't do it! In order for a web server to handle requests, the site must exist on the server. You cannot just point stuff here or there. ...

Looks like you don't have the DNS server configured at the domain name registrar. Right now the World doesn't know about your domain, it even doesn't know where to ask about it: root@dev2 [~]# dig fash.lk ns +short root@dev2 [~]# instead you should see something like that: root@dev2 [~]# dig gov.lk ns +short ns1.gov.lk. d.nic.lk. ns2.gov.lk. c.nic.lk. m....

The DNS standard does not support using CNAME records for the zone apex (root domain), some DNS providers get around this by creating a virtual CNAME record where you add where it should reference and the DNS server checks the IP address of the CNAME resolution and sends that back at the time of the query. As for your email question you can use any provider ...

If must control DNS yourself, set up an A record for the subdomain pointing to the IP address of the godaddy server that is all you need assuming you have set up that subdomain at godaddy. But more to the point, why even bother doing that? Move the content, change the nameservers for www.domain.com (or the IP address if you are using your own child ...

You have a few fundamental problems with your last line. RewriteRule ^/?$ "http\:\/\/10\.10\.10\.10\:8080" [R=301,L] Change it to: RewriteRule .* http://10.10.10.10:8080 [R=301,L] Of course, I assume that the IP address 10.10.10.10 in your example is just an example and that you are not trying to redirect to a private IP address that is not routable. ...

Note the comments about about cheap registrars, but the answer to your question is "yes", you can register cheap and then transfer somewhere else. There are a few things to note: You can't transfer a domain within 60 days of registration (or a previous transfer) and for many TLDs you pay the next renewal fee in advance when you transfer registrars. You ...

As @closetnoc alluded to in his comment, the short answer is this: Yes, you can register a domain with one registrar only to move it over to another registrar before the end of the (discounted) year. As long as you have not changed your contact information close to the timeframe in which you would like to conduct the transfer, you should have no problem. ...

It looks like misconfigured custom filter for the profile. In standard setup, the home page is normally just /. It is a common practice to create a filter that adds the domain to the beginning to create example.com/. Have a look at the filters (Admin > Select the view > Filters) and see if there is anything like this setup: https://support.google.com/...

The answer is, no, placing a backorder with GoDaddy for a domain that they currently hold does not guarantee they will catch the name. The domain I wanted to buy dropped yesterday, and was picked up by DropCatch. Based on this experience, next time I would place orders with multiple backorder services to increase the chance of winning the domain.

1) Most domain registrars allow you to register privately. So there is a real name on record, just not publicly visible to whois queries 2) In my experience, you can use "Domain Admin" or "Domain Webmaster" or "Fake Name" when registering. So long as the payment goes through.

Both Rob (a member here on webmasters.stackexchange.com) and I have tested your home page with the command line utility curl and he has tested it with a text-based browser lynx. Neither of us had viruses during the test. Neither of our results show a redirection to the URL with parameters added. One of the following has happened: A configuration has been ...

There is no specific time that unpaid domains become de-registered. The process is run in batches multiple times a day and there is no real way to monitor for when it does drop except by rerunning the DNS check to see if the domain is available or backordered several times until you see it come up as available.

All a CNAME record does is handle address resolution. In otherwords if client.bigmultisite.com has an A record of 1.1.1.1 if you then CNAME www.clientsite.com to client.bigmultisite.com the users browser will be given the IP of 1.1.1.1 to go to with the domain name of www.clientsitecom. What you would need to do it either have it running as the only site on ...

This is actually quite a common practice, be careful though, while it is perfectly acceptable to do this for common mis-speellings of your own domain name to keep your competitors from grabing them as well as your own domain name under multiple TLD's. Where you will encounter problems is with Cyber Squatting. This is where you are registering, trafficking ...

Based on the error message it would appear as though your sending the email through a Google email server. Google requires SSL/TLS and authentication on all SMTP connections. Your code indicates that you are authenticating but that you aren't specifying the SMTP username and password.

If the previous (current at the time) registrar's privacy service forwards email sent to the account in the domain registration then it might be possible to do the transfer without disabling privacy. The new registrar will send an "approval request" (that is what GoDaddy calls it) to the previous (current at the time) registrar. If the privacy service of ...

This is not possible unfortunately. Cookies are attached at the domain level. The way many sites, including the entire stack exchange network, deal with this is by having static content stored on a completely separate domain name, ie: something.stackexchange.com has all the static content stored on cdn.sstatic.net. As you can see it is not simply in a ...

The new registrar will send an "approval request" (that is what GoDaddy calls it) to your previous (current at the time) registrar. Here is the important part. If the privacy service of the previous (current at the time) registrar forwards the "approval request" then you will probably be able to do the transfer without disabling privacy. Many privacy ...
