No, you do not need a separate registration. http:// or https:// are just protocol specifiers. The name will resolve to the same host. However, once you're on the hosted machine, the web server determines what to display. Often, HTTP (port 80) and HTTPS (port 443) can be routed to different pages. This should be configurable by the website admin/tools. In ...

It depends on some factors. First of them is: Is piggybank.com in the same branch as you are? If it is clearly something completely different, it might turn into a problem. Then, is your name (now piggybank) some general word? Like Apple (Those lawyers have pulled some magic). If it is something less broad, something specific, that will increase your odds. ...

From GoDaddy's support page: What happens after domain names expire? Once a domain name expires, it goes through many stages before being released to the open market. Go Daddy sends five renewal emails to the domain name's administrative contact prior to the expiration date. Below is a timeline based on .com domain names. Day 1 We make the ...

You answered your own question. They said to set CNAME or A record. As for the Nameservers, unless GitHub says otherwise, you are going to ask what the A Record or CNAME should be set on your domain name. Then, if you don't know how, ask your Domain Register about setting the CAME or A Record to what it needs to be for your domain name.

You should redirect one to the other as two pages the same can never be good but as far as the choice of www. or 'naked domain' it is totally up to you. I was taught to have the www. as default but with the growing number of social media websites dispensing with this I think it is pretty common to see both. It all depends on: Does it look right without? ...

You only lost your domain name, not your website. Your website is right where you left it. You just can't see it right now because your domain name doesn't resolve to it anymore. I don't know for sure but I suspect NVS Corp is one of those companies that buys expired domains solely for the purpose of monetizing their existing traffic. My guess is you will ...

You could set up theirsite.com as a parked domain on top of myscript.com. This initially allows theirsite.com to be an alias for myscript.com. You can then use mod_rewrite (in .htaccess) to internally rewrite to the real URL (similar to what you have done already). You can only rewrite to a URL on theirsite.com (not myscript.com), which shouldn't be a ...

I dont think you can register a trademark and then claim ownership of previously registered domain names, (though obviously you would need proper legal advice.) Looking at the domain name dispute policy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uniform_Domain-Name_Dispute-Resolution_Policy A complainant in a UDRP proceeding must establish three elements to ...

I would prefer they are treated as one unified site by allowing Dreamhost to do a moved permanently redirect on one or the other. Yes, this is the "best practise". However, you can also set this preference in Google Webmaster Tools - although this only affects Google. What research is available that shows one style is more comfortable to users than ...

Any idea if they will ever integrate them into the search results? Of course they will. Do you really think the search engines would omit an entire segment of websites just because their TLD is new? The search engines have readily indexed and ranked new TLDs as they emerged (i.e. .co, .biz). These new TLDs will be no exception. Will they be ranked ...

If you see a totally different website, and your site is on shared hosting, it may be the case that your hoster has a configuration problem. This was the case in a similar question: "https://" refers to random site, "http://" is broken, but "http://www" works Check if your and the other site are hosted by the same provider ...

I wish I could do this, but the Answer which I got from the Developers Community for the API is that your page is an 'object'. URL, Comments, and Likes are fixed to that object. The best bet is to use a 301 Redirect to the new page. The Facebook crawler maintains that object for the future. As the link which bybe shared in the comments, the instructions ...

Regarding comments under your question, I think a good option would be to choose a domain name like joelblog.com because you create a blog by passion. Choosing a domain name like expertthings.com could be great if your target audience are possible clients but it's not your case. However, you can buy the domain name you prefer, it's just a question of taste. ...

I think that you are using private name servers. To use private name servers you need to register private name servers through your domain control panel. There may be an option in your domain control panel to create name servers in which you will have to define the ip of your vps against NS1 & NS2.YourDomain.Com

Between these two pages (1 and 2), you definitively have duplicate content even if you change or add a word (like a country for example) in a blog post. Moreover, your URLs and <title> tags are almost the same. Search engines like Google are smart enough to identify this duplicate content and it will badly affect SEO of your two pages. If you have ...

Short answer. There is no SEO effect to domain names such as assemb.ly other than what we already know. All the other information you pointed to refers to geo-location and finding sites with particular target geo-locations. The reason why these tricks are used is because it is memorable and cute. It is a marketing ploy de jour. In fact, it can be misleading ...

You should submit a request to transfer your domain to another ICANN-Accredited Registrar as soon as possible. Each accredited registrar, and reseller there-under, is bound by a Registrar Accreditation Agreement (RAA) with ICANN, the organization that administrates the domain name system and accredited domain registrars. Under that agreement, registrars ...

I would not take any chances and transfer the domain name and DNS service (if either applies) to a well known company. I use GoDaddy and have from the beginning including when I was a webhost. I can recommend them highly. You can call their tech support for help even without being a customer yet. They can help even if it is not the first person you talk to. ...

They probaly do this via their DNS, one is a CNAME (aka alias) of another, they both point to the same files (like a shortcut on your desktop). Via .htaccess they remove the www. if you don't want that, or always add it if you do. Technically is makes no difference at all. Both the users who type www. or don't get the exact same endresult because of this. ...

It has been a while since I have had to do this so I am a bit rusty. Please excuse any errors. Here are some Apache documentation links: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/sections.html http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/vhosts/ Here are some other reousrces that seem to be good: ...

Simple answer. At the end of the 10 year period, you can renew your registration. There are domain names far older than 10 years including nearly all of mine, Google, MSN, and so forth. The 10 year limit does not mean that you lose your domain name. It means that any registration period can only be as long as 10 years.

No, generally you wouldn't want the IP address to resolve to your website in addition to the domain itself (providing your domain resolves to the website, this will suffice) - there is often no need for the website to be accessible at the IP address but you could 301 redirect the IP address to your domain in .htaccess to handle this if you wish.

Subdomains can point to different servers. example.com is irrelevant to the user in this scenario since the user really will be at foundation.example.com and seeing files hosted at foundation.example.com. The DNS server points the user to the correct location, example.com doesn't point the user there. example.com's only role is to control access to ...

You don't need to simply give up your domain name! There are dispute resolution avenues available to you. Usually, you want to contact the registrar you were using and discuss disputing this transfer. From https://www.icann.org/en/resources/registrars/transfers/name-holder-faqs: My domain name was transferred without my authorization. What do I do? ...

They are still relatively new so there is not much in favour or against, so if you want to get that domain, just go for it. But since you already have an existing web site, you have to consider what do you want to do with it, if you want to keep both sites and be reached with both URls, it's OK, just remember to set the respective redirections. If, on the ...

The way I would do this is block all requests which are coming from unwantedcomain.com by checking for HTTP_REFERER Block traffic from a single domain: RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} unwateddomain\.com [NC] RewriteRule .* - [F] Block traffic from multiple domains: RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} unwanteddomain\.com [NC,OR] ...

The CMS you can use doesn't really matter for SEO unless the CMS has been thinking regarding SEO (it's the case for WordPress) There are too many possible reasons, so hard to answer you on this. However, be careful on duplicate content issues if two websites have the same content (main website and a subdomain are two different websites for search engines). ...
