Running multiple websites using the same IP address on a single VPS is very common. I am basing my response on a few assumptions: You have 3 different domain names You have 3 IIS websites setup in IIS Manager Each website points to a different webroot on the file system (although they don't necessarily have to) Each website needs to run on port 80 (if SSL ...

To check you have a genuine concern, you can see the expiry date from a WHOIS lookup query - I suggest you use a service that is unaffiliated with 123-reg to ensure it is not affected by any of their internal databases. For example, substitute your domain name into this URL: http://www.who.is/whois/yourdomain.com If you have as you say paid and been issued ...

One way of getting Google Analytics to show alternate domain name usage: treat the alternate domain names as marketing campaigns and append Google Analytics campaign tracking parameters to the URLs. For example, if my domain name is example.com and my alternate domain name is example.net, I can configure the redirect like this: http://example.net/ → ...

Your best option is to back-order the domain name with a reputable and established Domain Name provider such as 123-reg, GoDaddy, eNom. Obviously there will be a battle as to which provider is quickest at registering once the clock runs out so hopefully you're the only person with it on back-order!

If the different domain names are essentially covering common misspellings or longer and shorter versions of your main domain name then, @adam-asdf's approach above is probably your best option though I've always found Piwik Analytics far better than AWStats in case you wanted to take a look at that, the user interface is more user-friendly and a little more ...

1) Make a dump (backup) of your database. 2) FTP the code from your current host to your new host. 3) Create a database on your new host. Make certain that the database name and username is the same as it is on the current platform. If this is not possible, then you'll need to modify your code to suit the new platform. 4) Execute the SQL script created in ...

It depends on what you are going to do in the future. If you are going to continue to host the site at wordpress.com and just activate their custom domain name service, then both domain.com and domain.wordpress.com will work and you can register either one. If you plan on moving to self-hosted WordPress in the future or plan on doing something else with ...

Yes. For a period. However, I do warn you that if link keywords do not match the target page, these links can be downgraded and Google, depending upon the number, can consider this as spam. If your site is the same basic topic as the forum, then perhaps you can match the link keyword topics to relevant pages to prevent this.

Is this important having my router host name include FQDN so router.example.com? Usually setting a domain on your router to example.com make all the HOST only requests on your network (e.g. ping somehostname) try to ping somehostname.example.com. This might be useful if you are running one domain only, but is not related or required by what you are trying ...

First, enable hotlinking protection as covered here: This will prevent the images from being used on other domains but yours, unless of course they download the images and link them from their own server. Next, find some info about the owner and hosting company: First, use WHOIS lookup tool like this one. This will hopefully point to the hosting company ...

Not all countries have strong copyright laws. This is unfortunate. In the U.S. and Europe, there are legal actions you can take. In India (I may be assuming too much here), I have no idea. I suggest contacting an attorney and simply ask a few questions. In the U.S., this is a criminal act and any civil action can result in recovering payment for damages plus ...

This has mostly been answered in the comments but I wanted to add a little bit to it... If you're targeting a global market with your domain then you should use a .com TLD. This should be done for a few simple reasons. If you're starting from scratch it will be easier to rank globally using a .com TLD than a country code Users are more comfortable ...

Domains expire in CST time and .org domains the time is 9:30am CST, currently CST is -5 hours to that of GMT but due to daylight saving times this number changes throughout the year. So in other words if CST is -5 hours then you +5 that to GMT. So as of now (25/06/2014) it is: - 9:30am CST / 2:30pm GMT / CEST 4:30pm You should know that domains can take ...

The reseller account holder -- the person who has an account with Biz.nf -- will need to contact them to get the required codes. Once you have that code, you can then proceed with the transfer. If the Biz.nf account holder is no longer available, some resellers will send the codes to the email listed on the whois records. If you are this person/entity, ...

Usually my web host service send me an email as a reminder. So there is no issue with this. I renew the domain in this case.

Most registrars will allow you set your domains to auto-renew. I highly recommend this for any significant domain you own. The cost of renewal is trivial compared to the time spent trying to get the domain restored. If you want monitoring, just search for domain expiration monitoring or whois monitoring. Many companies provide both domain expiration ...

This seems like a plugin gone wrong issue. I would use something like Xenu's Link Sleuth http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xenu%27s_Link_Sleuth and take a base line look at your site. Then disable all plugins and crawl again. If the offending links are in the base line but not in the results without plugins then one of your plugins is definitely causing ...

I use this domain check script which I run from a cron job. It will send me email when domains are about to expire: http://prefetch.net/code/domain-check I also run this similar ssl certificate check script: http://prefetch.net/code/ssl-cert-check It performs the same function, but for SSL certificates.

My registrars have always sent me notices when a domain is going to expire but to be safe I have also used my gmail account and added the expire dates there as well. Google will send me an SMS as well as the event showing on my cell phone's calendar. You can set up multiple notifications too. I only have a two week notice but you could do 2 weeks, 1 week and ...

Checking RHSBL & LHSBL Blacklists I'd recommend Blacklist Alert, Ultratools and Mxtoolbox which checks both RHSBL and LHSBL across various networks such as RFC-Ignorant, Anonwhois, dnsbl, spamhaus and dozens more. Reputation Check Also worth checking out what trust and review sites say about the domain i.e these: TrustPilot Norton Safe Web Web of ...

You have far less to worry about than you think. But there are things to look for. All blacklists are based upon domainname.tld and/or IP address at it's base. In the case that you cited, example.com will not be blacklisted because example.net or example.de has become blacklisted unless they are related by ownership, registration, or host. If example.com ...

If you are transferring the domain to another Hosting Company, you would need to ask for the EPP Authorization Code from your current registrar and give it to your new Registrar (Most Web Hosting Companies resell domains). They will then send you an email to verify that you are indeed transferring it, and after you click the link it will take 5-7 days for ...

The simplest course of action for you would be to create a new account at the same registrar (GoDaddy) and use their internal "Change of Account". The steps are: You sign up for a new GoDaddy account You give your account number to your friend Your friend initiates an account change for the domain (link is to detailed instruction for your friend) You ...

There are the following additional restrictions on the purchase of .uk second level domains: 7 SLD registrations (NOTE RESERVATION RIGHTS APPLY TO CERTAIN HOLDERS OF THIRD LEVEL REGISTRATIONS UNTIL 10 JUNE 2019) In order to register a new Domain Name as a SLD within .uk, the following requirements apply: Any person may register a SLD within ...

DNS propagation can take a period of time ranging from a few minutes to as long as 48 hours. However, it does not appear your DNS is setup correctly. If I do a trace on your DNS, your domain registrar appears to have an issue sending NS records for your domain. I would contact whoever you registered the domain with about this issue. The DNS lookup dies ...

As Vishal said yes it can take up to 48 hours for the DNS to fully propagate. Doing a whois lookup of your domain shows your nameservers as: NS4.HOSTINGER.IN NS3.HOSTINGER.IN NS2.HOSTINGER.IN NS1.HOSTINGER.IN Hopefully they have propagated and you are now longer seeing that message. Personally for various host I have seen it happen almost ...

With DNS A records, you cannot set records for a specific file. DNS is all or none for the domain. If you must serve a robots.txt file, then you have to have DNS resolve to a valid domain and have a web server that will answer that request. Here is what I recommend: DNS Setup a CNAME to point www.domain.com to domain.com. Setup an A record to point ...

Your question is a bit confusing. But I think I understand. I am going to make some assumptions. One is, you have a web server enabled, but no website. **Update: Okay, from the comments, your question is not clear at all. I am updating the answer to be more complete. No. DNS stands for Domain Name Service. It translates domain names to routable IP ...

Google allows webmasters and business to own multiple domains with different content and have them appear in the search results. However, Google does frown upon "networks of sites" if they get large or spammy. You could cross into bad territory if: Your websites have pretty much the same content with just keywords changed Each site has little content, ...

Whenever a domain is transferred from one provider to other, Name servers remain the same. You can even select which Name servers to be used when it is being transferred. It depends on what is selected when the domain is being transferred.

No, you do not have to be a UK citizen. If you have a .co.uk domain, you will be given rights to the corresponding .uk domain name and no one can register it during that period. Once that period expires, it's open game. You can find more information here. http://www.dotuklaunch.uk/im-new-customer-how-do-i-get-one

Webmasters that have been hit by Google's algorithms or Google's evil penguin update attempting to get out of the penalty by registering a new domain and then redirecting the old to new will be left disappointed. Sadly its not a case of simply redirecting all visitors from old to new because that would defeat the objective of the punishment they have ...

You can use any DNS server on which you have permission to add a zone or resource record, which appears to be whois.com (your registrar, which almost always provides DNS services as a basic part of domain registration) and your hosting provider. When you changed the nameserver records on whois.com, you made ns*.000webhost.com authoritative for the zone. You ...

Contact the hosting company using what contact information you can acquire from a whois search or other related lookups.

In general you'll find you probably need both - while assemb.ly might be slightly shorter, explaining to people that it's "assemb dot el why" will probably take longer than assembly.com. Many of the brands that make use of this particular TLD do so as a URL shortening process, but they then tend to resolve on a more common TLD, for example the Bitly domain ...

You can use your .htaccess to only allow access from the domain you want. RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.yourblog\.com [NC] RewriteRule ^directoryname/ - [F] First line checks if the incoming host header doesn't match your allowed host. If it doesn't then the second line will catch the request. The second line forbids requests to your app's ...

You can use both. But not with the same content or not without a 301 redirect of some sort. If you are competing locally at first, then redirect the .com to the .co.uk site and do all the local SEO stuff on the .co.uk site to compete well. As the company grows, then the .co.uk site can be more company related and the .com can be product related. In fact, you ...
