This is North Korea- mostly the government of North Korea. KP is the (country code) ccTLD. This (org.kp) is not actually a site but a sub-domain of a ccTLD for organization. Not every site has to have public contact information- hence private registrations. However, there are some rules that some level of contact information must be present that are ...

There isn't. However, it's good practice to choose one or the other and stick to it - allowing for both may cause issues with ranking. You can ensure that your website sticks to one or the other by redirecting all requests to the one you have chosen. Here is an example, which ensures all requests to google.co.uk get redirected to www.google.co.uk - it also ...

To get a website up at a domain name you need to follow these steps: Register the domain name. At the registrar, point the NameServer (NS) records to the domain name server (DNS) that will be handling the domain. On the name server, add records to resolve the host name to your server. Configure your web server to handle requests that come in for that ...

I'll be quoting wikipedia on this, but I believe in this case the information is reliable: WHOIS servers operated by Regional Internet Registries (RIR) can be queried directly to determine the Internet Service Provider responsible for a particular resource. The records of each of these registries are cross-referenced, so that a query to ARIN ...

The Process: The exact drop time varies by registry - from 30 to 60 days. It can take up to 75 days for the domain to actually drop. Contact the registrar to find out what their hold time is. The domain will stay in pendingDelete for about 5 days. There is no set time for when a domain is dropped, though it does appear to start in the 11am-2pm PST (2pm - ...

A CNAME is not a redirect. Rather it is an alias. If you put a CNAME record in DNS the host name will resolve to the same IP address as the other host name. The webserver must be configured to handle the content. It has a choice: Serve the same content as the other domain Redirect to the other domain It is the webserver that must make this ...

You can read the domain renewal policy here: http://www.nic.io/renewpolicy.html The domain drops out of expiration and becomes available 90 days after it expires. nic.io also tells you when the domain will drop. For example, the domain 60.io is dropping in a couple of days, which you can see from the WHOIS info on nic.io: ...

On the last day of this period, typically between 11am and 2pm Pacific Time that domain name will be completely dropped from the ICANN database. Once this happens anyone is free to register that domain ...

Don't duplicate the site. As recommended by Google, you should use a 301 redirect. https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/93633?hl=en Page content added for completeness for future visitors: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1lVPrYoBkA If you need to change the URL of a page as it is shown in search engine results, we recommend that you use a ...

Please do not think that the auto-suggestion mechanism is too much of any indication. It is a simple process that has no significant tie to search. But your question is still a good one. Both domain names will perform for search as they should. There may be some confusion for users who are looking for one or the other domain with the auto-suggestion ...

This is related to how the new TLD are administered. Old TLDs can be administered by several parties (.com, .org, .net, .biz, etc . . .) so there is competition in the field because it was viewed as a monopoly when first setup (those TLDs started at $50 back in the day through Network Solutions.) The new rights to .anythinggoes are purchased by a single ...

Some registrars will allow you to register the .uk by verifying ownership of the .co.uk address. For example, I registered the address medexpress.co.uk with name.com who do not offer .uk domains. I registered the medexpress.uk with names.co.uk, after supplying verification that I own medexpress.co.uk. However, some registrar's such as 123-reg would not ...

There are issues with redirecting a domain to a sub-domain that are often forgotten. One is the sub-domain will, at some point, have to stand on it's own. Often, if a domain is redirected to another, the question comes up regarding deleting the original domain. Any links, trust score, site score is passed using a 301 redirect, however, if the desire comes ...

Here is the GoDaddy help page about adding private registration. It states: Private Registration is available for many domain name extensions. However, some registries do not allow it. If the registry does not allow privacy, the Privacy tab is not available in the domain name's Upgrade section of the Domain Manager. If the option is not in the ...

You asked a specific question which I will address first. Can you register a trademark then require an existing domain owner to give up that domain? No. The registration predates your trademark and therefore cannot violate the law. In fact, within some areas, they could potentially have a claim against your trademark if they have been operating under that ...

.app is only a proposed gTLD and as such there is no release date from ICANN yet.

WHOIS is actually a protocol. Various websites and tools can use this particular protocol to find out about the availability of a domain name. And yes, most of these websites are trustworthy, simply because they don't have much to gain from you. Why would they need your input to inspire them about the importance of a particular domain name? A vast number of ...

By doing such a practice one can maintain the SEO value of the site.Hence the idea of redirection is quite good as it will move ...

.org is for non commercial organization, not a product. For a product, you should choose another TLD like a .com for example. For SEO, there is no advantage to use a .org instead of a .com. However, to protect your product, you should buy the .net and the .org TLDs and 301 redirect them to the .com.

I am not sure why you need to shutdown you site, but if that includes giving up your domain name or host, then no there is nothing you can do. However, if you can retain your domain name and still host it somewhere, then a blanket 301 redirect will preserve some of your back link status and preserve the domain site metrics. If you can redirect some or as ...

Your CNAME should be www.bracketfanatic.com pointing to bracketfanatic.com. But that may not be the only thing you need to set. DNS does not normally control redirects, however, there may be something we are not aware of that the host is doing. Make this change and see if that does not solve your problem. If not, then we will have to look further.

Your host name also needs to be added to /etc/hosts in 127.0.0.1 section. If you haven't rebooted since editing /etc/hostname you also need to set the hostname using the hostname command. This normally happens at bootup from /etc/hostname. Here is a script that I use to make sure the host name is set correctly on my Ubuntu ec2 instance: #!/bin/sh set -e ...

What you really want is a custom domain. Microsoft has documentation for custom domain setup when using a server from their cloud app. You would have to: Point the domain name to the cloudapp.net server using a CNAME or A record Since you get your own cloud app server with your own IP address, you don't even have to do any virtual host ...

I know you have an accepted answer but I hope I can provide a much simpler one, with specific configuration advice. First, set up DNS exactly like you would for HTTP. The protocol doesn't matter, just point traffic at your server IP. Next, you have to instruct your server to listen for HTTPS traffic. This is the bit you were having trouble with and there ...

DNS servers only associate names with addresses and has nothing to do with ports or packet redirection. These things are done through servers, proxies, firewalls, and clients. For example, standard HTTP requests from your web browser makes a request packet addressed to a (domain name that is translated to) an IP address and port based upon standards for the ...
