If I understand correctly, you are trying to host your web site on a dynamic IP address? If that is the case, your dynamic DNS provider will need to handle your DNS. They will need to update your A record as your IP changes. So you will likely need to have a paid account with a dynamic DNS provider and then you will want the following records. ...

Yes.. If your hosting company provides support for multiple sites on a single server. A lot of webhostsing services do that. If this is not possible have a subdomain as you asked in the question and forward the domain using domain forwarding feature this is not a best way though.

Is that possible - one hosting space for two websites? Yes, it is totally possible, as indicated in other previous answers. How to do it? It depends on your present hosting environment. If you are on a shared hosting environment, it might be a bit difficult to do it without the help of your web host, even though some hosts offer this feature in their ...

First of all you may need to park your domains at your domain registrar and wait for atleast 24-hours for the DNS propagation and after that you are free to host your domains where you may want by adding records in DNS Zone File.

You should ask Namecheap support if you can set up the forwarding that way with their service. If they cannot do that, then you have to make the redirect with your own web server.

301ing will allow you to keep all traffic whilst the search engines re-index, so that is the most important to do. This should be on all pages, not just any that have links. Personally, I think Option 2 would make for a good signal that the links are still relevant (not, for example, someone buying and 301ing a site just for page rank). However, Google ...

I would play it safe and assume that you are not able to own the domain. I've actually looked to purchase some foreign domains myself only to find that I needed to be a resident there so this stipulation isn't unusual. But, considering "Any foreign entity or organization with a bona fide presence in the United States" is stated you may be able to get around ...

The web hosting company will issue a CSR for you and you have to submit this CSR at your SSL certificate provider. Once SSL is issued, you will have to provide SSL Certificate (provided by SSL provider) & the CA Bundle to your hosting provider. They will install it on your domain name. Note: For the SSL certificate, you will need to order a dedicated ...

Should you make www.example.com redirect to your site? Absolutely. Speaking from someone who works as a web developer and has an IT degree, if typing www.example.com didn't get me to your site, my first thought would not be to omit www. I'd think, "Oh, the site must be down." Or I'd think, "I must not have gotten the domain name correct. Maybe it's ...

You can buy your SSL certificate from any provider and then it is installed into your web hosting. When you purchase the SSL certificate, you specify the specific domain it is for. It is usually convenient to buy the SSL certificate from your web hosting provider as they may install it for you as part of the service, or at least be in a good position to ...

You really do need to have the www. sub-domain point to your website. It is particularly important for type in traffic. If you tell a person to visit example.com, a large number of them will add a www. In my experience it is 40% or more that do this. I myself tend to like naked domains with no subdomain when creating a website. I have occasionally ...

User Experience User experience remains one of the most important factors when operating a website. User experience enhances your conversions, increases time spent on page and in directly improves rankings due to an increase of people wanting to link to your site. Having a site not accessible via both with or without www causes a few user experience ...

Information domain use and take down can be found on ICANN's website You can find this information on ICANNS website. It is from my understanding that any country can issue a requested take-down seizure of the a domain regardless of the country location. It's important to note that governments don't take-down the domains, ICANN has this ability and requests ...

So your explanation was really confusing, but your solution seems fairly simple: Your domain's servers are already pointed to the cloudflare nameservers. You do not need to change these. Cloudflare is still pointing users to your old host, but you can edit the DNS records in cloudflare to point to your new host. Simply change the existing A record to point ...

As your question states, they are websites using the same application and maybe the same look and feel (template); they work exactly the same way. First, you must set Geographic target in Google Webmaster Tools => Site Settings, for every site according to its locale. Different content for different geographic targets. If your classified listings, and ...

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 ...
