How do I register my nameservers?
Since this process differs from registrar to registrar, it's difficult for us to give you a full walkthrough. The best place to start is to look at the online control panel of your Registrar and see if you can find it there. If you can't find the area to register nameservers, you may want to contact your registrar for help with their system. If worse comes to worse, one of our support personel will add the nameservers for you, if possible.



What is a parked domain?
A parked domain name is an additional domain name that leads to the same place as the main domain name for your account.

For instance, if you had domain.com and wanted domain.net to lead to the same place, you would park domain.net on domain.com.

You can park a domain in Cpanel under the 'manage parked domains' link.



What is an addon domain?
Addon domains give you the ability to add a second site to your web space. Unlike a parked domain, which resolves to the same place as your main site, an addon domain resolves to it's own folder.



What is propagation?
Propagation is the time it takes for each of the internet backbones to be updated with your new DNS information. This often takes about 24 hours, but can take even longer, sometimes up to 5 days. If propagation takes you more than 48hours, it's a good idea to open a support ticket with us, so we can investigate any problems.
