You can contact the relevant Domain Name Registry and ask about their process for dispute resolution. .co.uk for example has a Dispute Resolution Service which is relatively easy. .com follows the Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy. The process can be different for different TLDs, but contacting the registrar of the domain is probably the best ...

Yes, Google prioritizes local domains over foreign ones but if does not affect the search results as much as other factors like the domain name itself. If a person searches for "dude", dude.ee would likely rank over the-one-dude.com. But there are hundreds of factors that affect the ranking so this is a very theoretical example. Practical example: ...

It doesn't need to be .org.au or .com, it can be just .org if you want, because that is what you are - a non profit organisation. The only difference I see is that .org.au rank higher in Australia. By the way, what kind of merchandise is it? If we use Wikimedia as an example, they have a store inside their .org website: https://store.wikimedia.org/ ...

It seems this question would mostly attract opinions as answers - to get something objective you'd probably have to do a focus group with the types of people who would donate to you. It's also a branding question, not foremost a web question. But for what it's worth, as a fellow Aussie, I'd trust a .org.au before a .com, particularly if I hadn't heard of ...

Login as the domain owner and select active domains click on the appropriate domain name on the lower right side of the screen will be the dns servers. Click edit DNS servers and make the desired changes. scroll all the way to the bottom and click ...

I've asked a colleague a question: would migrating to www.whitewreath.org.au increase the trust a website visitor has in White Wreath? Opinion, but: Yes. I would trust a .org.au site over a .com site. The CEO of White Wreath is concerned all the merchandise with www.whitewreath.com on it will become invalidated due to the domain name change. ...

When you buy a domain name, there are records showing you as the domain name owner. Just because someone impersonates you, it doesn't mean they can own your property. Just like your car, if someone claims to be you, that doesn't mean they can drive off with your car. Only you can assign the domain name to an IP address. Only you can buy a SSL certificate ...

You cannot use the same URL to point to both server and your website. However, you can create subdomains and point to your server and website separately. For example: you can have server.domain.com point to your server and www.domain.com to your website.

It may depend on your registrar, but in my case, I set up what is called 'child name nameservers' in one registrar and 'registry hosts' in another, but they both do the same thing, that is where you create something like ns1.yourdomain.com, ns2.yourdomain.com as nameserver values. Then in WHM go to Home »Server Configuration »Basic cPanel & WHM Setup ...

You could just create another domain as you said, just place all your website there(meaning data - all files), but use the same or a mirrored database additionaly. Depends on how often you update your code, etc, you can just create git repo and auto-pull on change for the other website, just adding a small shell automaticaly renaming string domain1.com to ...

how much do you have to pay after the first year? If the registrar you transfer the domain to charges 20€/year (for renewals) then you will pay 20€ after the first year. Some TLDs (notably .com) require you to pay for an additional years registration at the time of transfer, which then extends your registration period. However, be careful of ...

It depends on the registrar. Typically the price will be similar or a little more than the new registration or transfer rate. Most registrars also provide a pricing table for the 3 common actions - Create/Register, Renew and Transfer To find the lowest price, you can visit http://domcomp.com. Search for the domain extension/TLD for your domain and check the ...

I did a search today where I was not logged in to Chrome, and it listed my sub-domain and my main domain on the first page. I thought this was weird, why now, so suddenly after this question. I didn't realize that I had turned on personal search results for Google, which affected the results I saw. Turning off personal search results for Google gave me the ...

As @Simon_Hayer notes, there's no good way to prevent this entirely. However, if it's just a nameserver thing, you could create a new nameserver, ns.domaina.com (with the same IP address as ns1.myserver.com) and use that as domaina.com's nameserver. Again, this might not solve the main problem, but it will at least solve the "nameserver problem" you ...

Users, google and other major search engines are able to detect finger prints from a variety of methods.

To reduce the finger prints your site must use the following: a different name server, or use one that is used by hundreds to thousands of ...

The domain will be subject to deletion once your registrar has conducted its investigation. Just like with all other legal disputes, investigations take time. If you want the domain released faster then you need to contact your domain registrar to provide them evidence that you are, or not the rightful owner or comply to the policies set out in there terms ...
