Anti-Crime, Anti-Spam & Anti-Phishing Policy

  • Child Pornography
    1. First of all we need to point your attention to Child Pornography and comparable high criminal activities. Crime is growing as fast as the internet grows. Anyone can be victim and subject or (willed or unwilled) support such.
    2. All who run a blog, a forum, or other scripts to allow a visitor to upload images or other stuff visible or downloadable for anyone (= stuff being public), has to watch this:
    3. IF we detect Child Porn or comparable high criminal activities, we suspend the account immedeately w/o prior notification and delete the stuff identified or account's full content.
    4. Furthermore, we send notification to Registry of related domainnames, to the Police Authority related, and to all Payment Processors with full personal details.
    5. The account owner has to pay a penalty of Minimum EUR 500.00 for any case.
    6. This means, if you run such scripts, you need to investigate verify often the content of your account, or - much better - check any upload before you give it free for public.
    7. We do NOT accept any excuse.
    8. The account owner is fully responsible for ANY that is in his account.
    9. A Reseller is fully responsible for ANY that is in his or his customer accounts.
    10. In case of Child Porn or comparable high criminal activities it is not the question if you have it public, it is not allowed to have such stored or have a link to such.

  • File folders with permission (CHMOD) 777 are not allowed, except you have password protection for the folder.
    777 permission means, anyone can upload all stuff, also scripts, and may hack or misuse your account.
    You are responsible for all what works in your account, so watch the security settings of your account.
    There is no need to have a file or folder with 777.
    If you have a script that requires 777, it is unsecure and you have to remove/ replace it by a secure script.
    If you need 777 nevertheless, then make the folder password protected!
    If you are unsure if your account is fine, you may ask us to run a complete security check.

  • User “nobody”
    This is different to problem "user Nobody" for file permissions, read FAQ to Joomla.
    Some scripts are designed to get installed on a dedicated server with root access. If such script creates an outgoing mail, the mail has as sender nobody@servername
    Such is absolute illegal, and we do not tolerate such. If we detect such, we suspend the account w/o prior notice.
    It is your obligation and responsibility to secure that scripts which you install are working correctly and secure!

  • Mass mails
    You may not send more than 200 mails/ hr. If you want such, you need to do this by one of the big mail ISPs, like Yahoo or GMX.

  • Mails sent by visitors
    Some forums and other installations allow a visitor to send mails w/o having an own account on the server. In ANY case your scripts have to secure that a visitor need to get registered in your system first, and outgoing mail address is doublechecked if it is correct and sent mails do arrive w/o failure, and the sender has an unique email sender address in format "username@yourdomain.com"
    If you can't secure it, you need to disable the feature or make the access page pw protected and set up customer accounts manually.

  • Suspension, Penalty, Security Operator Handling Fee

    1. Server endangerment (high cpu load, blacklisting IP, Mass Mails, Phishing Mails, Spamming, or such) caused by an account will cause (temporarily or finally) suspension of the account and/or the domain name w/o prior notice.
    2. Depending of the concrete case, we charge between 50 EUR and 500 EUR Security Operator Handling Fee.
    3. Also, if it is an account still running under "30 Days Money Back Guarantee", the guarantee becomes obsolete.
    4. If it is a reseller account's customer, the reseller is responsible.
    5. In ANY case, the account owner is fully responsible for all what happens with his account.

  • Security Check by Server Tech
    If you are not familar with these topics and/or want us to secure that your account if free of any bad script or other security issue, you may purchase a Server Tech Security Check for your webhost account.
    We charge for it EUR 19.95
    If you want this you may send a ticket.

    Requirements to have a dedicated IP

  • IPs are rare in between. Because this, the five Regional Internet Registries ( ARIN · LACNIC · AfriNIC · RIPE NCC · APNIC ) have more or less strong rules who can get a dedicated IP.

    Standard rule is, that only for a nameserver, or a dedicated server, or for a Digital SSL Certificate a dedicated IP is to let. This means for one who is hosting his domain on a shared server, that he need to purchase both, a Digital SSL Certificate and a dedicated IP for it.

    Both you can get for a one year period only, not for shorter period.

    Normal, an ISP or DC can obtain a block of IPs (32, 64, 128), and they set the price for a single IP if they let one.

    In USA and some European continental countries it is relative cheap and easy to get a dedicated IP. Other countries, where the ISPs or DCs don't have big blocks of IPs (and not of different class-C or class-B nets) it may be that they have higher prices, or are unable to give IPs of different nets. Because this, we need to charge different prices, depending from server location (and so depending from DC)

    Several country code domain names, like .DE (Germany) require pre-configuration of two nameservers "of different class-C or class-B nets" - according RFC - before registration of the domain name or before any change. This is not possible to get easy for any server location. In UK and Asia, and also often in USA, sometimes it may be a big deal to get IPs of different nets.

    We offer hosting (shared and reseller) always with servers using nameservers of different class-C or class-B nets. Because this, you can host any country code domain name on any server.

    PARK or ADDON a domainname in cPanel

    • PARK a domain means, the domain get the same web content as the master domain, needs no extra hosting space.

    • ADDON means, the domain get own web content

    • If the domain name is registered brand new so that the parent server not yet has stored the use of any nameservers and/or directing to an IP, then cPanel can PARK or ADDON at once the new domainname.

    • If it is an exesting domainname which has already entries somewhere, you have to watch at setup, that cPanel checks if the domain is using the server's nameservers already, or ist dedicated to another host.

    • So you have FIRST to set the DNS at registry to use the server's nameserver, and wait up the propagating, before you can PARK or ADDON the domainname.
    • If for the domainname pre-configuration is required (most of national domains that do), then you will run in a trap if you want to PARK or ADDON an existing domain: cPanel checks if the domain is pointed correct, while the registry server for the national domain checks if the nameservers do response already. The one is waiting that the other goes first, and twisted.

    • In such cases you have to place a support ticket with some details listed below, so that we can set up the zone file manually and after that you can change the settings at registry successful:

    • If you only want to PARK the domain, we need your account- and servername, and the domainname you want to park.

    • If you want to ADDON the domain, first in cPanel you have to create a subdomain of your masterdomain with the corresponding subdirectory. Then you send us your username, servername, name of masterdomain and subdomainname created, and the domainname you want to ADDON.

    • This is why any ADDON domain is hosted on top of a subdomain of the masterdomain, and the subdomain is, like any subdomain, related to a subdirectory.

      If you ADDON the national domain SAMPLE.DE, then in Filemanager (or FTP) you may see
    • public_html/ (that is your web content of your masterdomain.com)
    • public_html/index.html (the indexpage of your masterdomain)
    • public_html/sample/ (that is the subdirectory of your subdomain sample.masterdomain.com and the web content for SAMPLE.DEis stored in public_html/sample/ and the index page for SAMPLE.DE is public_html/sample/index.html
    Two restrictions an ADDON domain has:
    • 1) you can't use Fantastico autoinstall
    • 2) you can't set an ADDON domain on another ADDON domain

    Flash Tutorial: How to ADDON a Domain Name in cPanel
    And we warn: Never ADDON or PARK a domain on top of another ADDON or PARKED domain, as this will give big DNS mismatch and lot of manual work after to correct all. (And maybe we'll have to charge an additional handling fee from you) Back to TOP
    How to get out of Google's sandbox

    If your web site has good rankings on Yahoo, MSN and other search engines but not on Google, it's likely that your web site has been put into Google's sandbox.

    What is Google's sandbox?

      In general, brand-new web sites with new domain names need about 6 - 8 months to get top rankings on Google.

      The usual process is that Google indexes the new web site, lists it for some less important queries and then the web pages drop from the search engine result pages for several months. Although other search engines work fine, Google doesn't list the web site, sometimes not even for the company name.

      If you have a brand-new web site, don't worry about this behavior. You are not doing anything wrong. Google seems to delay the inclusion of new web sites. This phenomenon is called the Google sandbox.

    Why does Google delay the inclusion of brand-new web sites?

      It seems that Google delays the inclusion of brand-new web sites to encourage webmasters to build content instead of building mini-networks.

      Many webmasters try to artificially inflate the link popularity of their web site by creating a network of small web sites with different URLs that all link to each other. Many of these web sites have no purpose other than linking to the main web site. Meanwhile this may cause a penalty by Google.
      The delay might encourage webmasters to focus on the content of their main web site instead of building useless mini sites.

    What can you do to get out of the sandbox?

      If you have a new web site, expect that your web site will be listed within 6-8 months in Google. Add content to your web site, get good incoming links and make sure that your web pages are optimized for Google (but not only for Google, as other engines, i.e. MSN search, also are important, and some optimization may cause conflicts. More to this aspect coming soon here).

      As soon as you have a domain name, create a temporary page and link to it from another web site to make Google aware of your web site. The 6-8 months delay seem to start with Google's first contact with your web site. The sooner Google knows about your web site, the sooner it will be listed.

      By the way, Yahoo and MSN don't have such a delay so don't focus on Google alone but also optimize your web pages for these search engines.

    Can you speed up the whole process?

      It seems that there's nothing that can be done to speed up the sandbox process. Some webmasters in online forums suggested that it might help to get inbound links that point to different web pages of your web site, not just to your index page.

      It might also help if your web site has its own IP address and it also seems to help if you have a link from the Yahoo directory. However, these theories haven't been confirmed yet.

    Google's sandbox is Google's attempt to prevent spammers from creating web sites.

    Google Web Accelerator - Warning!

    What it is? See here: webaccelerator.google

    If you use GWA (and run software such as forums, blogs, CMS etc) it seems that you run the risk of deleting things on your site(s).

    More information HERE.

    Obviously this is a major concern, it could potentially destroy everything. Pretty irresponsible on Google's part.

    There are ways you can block Google Web Accelerator from your site(s) if you're concerned, but not sure I see the point unless you suspect users who have admin access to anything may be using it.

    Here's one site with instructions: fantomaster

    and here's another padawan which has instructions and links to further information.

    Another problem seems to be that it caches cookies on the google servers, instead of on the local browsers computer. This means that applications which rely on cookies for user authentication or logins will become a security risk. There are already reports of users with this logging on to a forum as someone else.

    Luckily it doesn't seem to cache https:// so at least cPanel and WHM should be safe.

    German Domainname Requirements for Nameserver
    • A German .DE domain name anyone can buy. The requirements are:

    • If the registrant is not legally located in Germany, he has to name a local representative as admin-C with a valid street address (PO BOX does not fit the requirement)

      We offer that for free. Some other registrars do ignore it, what may cause a delete of the domain by DENIC w/o any notification.

    • The nameserver have to be set up with an authoritative response, and correct SOA values

      DE SOA Values


    • The nameservers have to belong to "IP numbers of either different CLASS B or CLASS C" (as required by RFC), what means, they have to be on different located systems.

    • The nameservers have to know the .DE before you can transfer it or do any other change.

    Requirements to Register a Country Code TLD (ccTLD)

    If you order a ccTLD registration and do not host it with us, watch this!

    The first you need to watch is, that ANY ccTLD has its own, national requirement, which are often very different. Also the result is different: some refuse the registration, some do the registration for an interim period of 7 - 30 days, but do not connect the domain name.

    As we cannot list all different rules, here that rules which are on the secured side, always. For more information you need to visit the NIC's sites:

    For all ccTLDs which are not part of your automatic system with direct user access HERE (like . US, .UK, .IN), we require:
    1. The most important thing is to be according RFC with the nameservers
    2. The second important thing is, to have the nameservers set up *before* you send the application to register the domain name.
    3. To be according RFC, your nameservers
    4. - need to give an authorative response
    5. - need to be of different Class-C Nets
    6. - need to have these SOA values
    To verify your settings you may use this Zone Check, but watch!, you not only need a passed, you need to get ZERO Failure and NO Warning! Passed only means that the German NIC does register the name, but not connect. (other NICs may refuse).

    Therefore, ANY order for a ccTLD registration which is not in our automatic system, we check first if the Zone Check gives ZERO FAILURE and NO WARNING. If it fails or gets a warning, the order goes to HOLD until you send a support ticket and confirm that it is repaired and tested from you. We accept 2 fails from you. After that we charge 9.95 € handling fee.

    If you can't manage it, you are free to purchase Managed DNS

    If you host the domain name with us, you don't need to watch it, our nameservers are according RFC anyways.

    Deadline for Renewal of a Country Code TLD


    Any country code TLD (ccTLD) which is not in our PDR system, i.e. .DE or .BE, has different rules for renewal the domain name. If you not pay the renewal right early = latest 31 days BEFORE expire, they may take the domain name to central sysem but not delete it, and request an addtional fee, or, they may delete the domain name and a new registration requires an additional fee. Details you may read at the national NIC's sites.

    In any case, the 31 days borderline is to watch!

    How to transfer a .co.uk or .org.uk domain to 1st€uro?


    Because .uk transfers are a push/pull process, you also have to submit a request to the losing registrar. Contact your current registrar and request to retag the domain name to the ISP tag "ENOM". This starts the transfer away process.

    If you initiate the transfer with us first, you must submit the request to the losing registrar within one week. If initiating the request to the losing registrar first, you must initiate your transfer with us by either the 8th of current month or the 8th of the following month, whichever is closest to the current date..

    Requirements for a Domain Transfer


    Several national domain names have different requirements for domain transfers from one registrar to another.

    · Germany (.DE): The "Admin-C" (Administrative Contact) has to send by fax a special doc, called "KK", with his handwritten sign, to the new registrar AND to the old registrar before he can start the transfer process. If the old registrar does not get that form correct, for security reasons he has to secure that a transfer request is not possible. Ask the new registrar for the right KK-form that you have to send.

    · Great Britain (.UK): To facilitate the transfer of .uk domains, the old registrar has to update the tag for the domain at Nominet UK to reflect that of the new registrar (eNom). If it is a transfer to us and started before the tag is changed by the old registrar, the customer has to secure that it will be done within 5 days.

    How I can verify if my site is up?


      Problem: I can't see my site from my PC

      Before you submit a support ticket or complain that the server is down or your account deleted, you need to verify what is on in fact and who is responsible.

      It may have lot of different reasons, why a site is not to see, and most are not within our responsibility:

    • Your IP is blacklisted
      This may be if you login by a dialup IP and before you smeone misuses the access to send mass of spam or made other activity which made the firewall to block the IP. Most ISPs do not send a message to the Datacenter to get the IP free again, but their system gives the IP to the next dialup user after the other disconnected.
      In such cases you need to check what IP you use and send both, your ISP and us a message with that IP.

    • Your Network connection is broken
      somewhere between you and our server, or gives bad packets If the server and your website is technically up you can check always quickly here: http://monitor.1steuro.us/de/quicktest.php
      · Test Type => Website
      · URL/Hostname => yourdomain.com
      · Port => nothing, let empty
      if OK, you can be sure that there is no problem with the site technically. If you have problems nevertheless, it is either your ISP, or your IP is blacklisted, or you need to change your browser settings and empty your cache, or is is a failure in DNS settings at registrar. But it is nothing caused by us, certainly.

    • Your website is not to see althought the monitors (above) say the site is OK
      go here https://www.megaproxy.com/freesurf/ and try to visit your website by Proxy. If you get the website, then you need to contact your ISP or check your browser settings, and send us your IP to check if you're IP is blacklisted.
      If you get NOT the website, then submit a ticket and report what error message you get on your browser. It may be that there is a misconfiguration by a script you installed, or you edit/removed accidently a file, or such.
      We always have monitors running for all servers, and if there is a problem with the server, then we set an ALERT at http://1steuro.net/network.html

    Where are my mails (files) gone?


      Problem: when I login cPanel and look in Filemanager, I get nothing

      Your Storage Limit

    • remember, the account size (storage limit) is for ALL in your account.

    • remember how cpanel works: For any operation it creates a tmp file. So incoming mails get to tmp, and then stored in the right mailbox. If you enter File manager or Disk Usage Viewer, cPanel generates the list to show, and for that it needs tmp, means: also free space.

    • If your account is close to limit or over limit, cpanel no longer can generate this and so you cannot see any file, only website visit by http and ftp login works.

    • you need to look at your Disk Usage Viewer what is using how much, and download/delete mails by POP3 and/or by ftp delete other files, i.e. statistics in Analog, Webalizer, or other.

    • Same is when you generate a backup file.

    • If you are over quota, we can lift temporarily the limit to enable you to do that work.

    • If you don't get managed it by this way, maybe you need to upgrade your account to get more storage.

    What is phpSuExec ?

    You may read some good explanations HERE and HERE.

    We do not have phpSuExec enabled on our servers - installing phpSuExec means running php in cgi mode. We have PHP in cli mode.

    Let get into core of this -

    Its not particular software issue -- its about PHP.

    PHP can be compiled on server in two ways --

    PHP as a CGI with Suexec

    When PHP runs as a CGI with Suexec, PHP files work under your user/group. PHP files no longer require loose permissions to function, now they will require strict permissions.
    Setting your directories or PHP files to 777 will cause them to produce a 500 Internal Server Error, this happens to protect your PHP files from being abused by outside sources.

    Under PHPSuexec your directories and PHP files can have permissions no greater than 755 (read/write/execute by your username, read/execute by group/world). Since you own your files, your scripts can function in any directory your user has created and can't be manipulated by any outside users, including "nobody".

    Now, when a PHP file creates or uploads a new file under your account, the new file will be owned by your username. You will no longer have to worry about the webserver taking over your files and even more important, you will no longer have to worry about a stranger reading or writing to your files either!

    Php compiled with suexec has some disadvantages -

    * Some scripts will not work with this.
    * .htaccess feature cannot be used since .htaccess is apache module feature.

    PHP as an Apache Module

    When PHP runs as an Apache module, PHP files work under the Apache user/group known as "nobody". For example, when a PHP file needs to write to another file or create/remove a file, it does so under the name "nobody". In order to allow "nobody" to do this, you need to set specific permissions on the file/directory, such as 777 - which translates to read/write/execute by user/group/world. This is insecure because you have not only allowed the webserver (Apache) to read/write to the file, you have also allowed everyone else on the server to read/write to the file as well!

    Due to the above conditions, when a PHP file creates or uploads a new file under your account, the new file will be owned by the user "nobody". If you FTP into your account, all files owned by "nobody" will not be available for you to move, rename or delete. In this case the only way to remove the "nobody" owned files would be through a file on the server or to contact support and ask for the file ownership to be changed back to your username.

    March 30, 2009 -We now have on all server switch Apache configuration to use suPHP handler. More to this you may read HERE

    This means:
    • No folder may be at CHMOD 777 anymore, but on 755 instead, also upload folders
    • Files need to be CHMOD 644 or (Http) 755 minimum
    • Customers have own php.ini file
    • In case of problem, check if php.ini contains "output_buffering = 4096"
    • htaccess file must not have php configuration
    • enable Safe_mode and register globals -- for security reason
    • disable some functions that can cause problems on the server (some one can huck the server via php scripts using this func.)
    • disable_functions = exec,shell_exec,mb_send_mail,system,popen,proc_open,ini_restore,dl,passthru
    • If you have folders with CHMOD 777, you need to change them to 755
    • If you have files or folders with ownership "99" or "nobody", submit a support ticket, all files now need ownership of account
    • If your applications need an own php.ini, pls send a support ticket. It must be enabled for each user individually.
    • We have installed php4 and enabled it as suphp. It will be used to handle all php files what have extension php4. Also we switched php5 to suphp. This is default version of php what will be used.

    File Ownership "NOBODY" and Joomla Problems

    Problem: You cannot CHMOD files/folders with ownership "nobody", but some scripts and applications (like Joomla) create such.

    Upload of files or folders by http, i.e. using Joomla, creates files/folders with owner "nobody" and requires manual edit.

    As you are on a shared system, any file/folder needs to have an ownership. If a file gets created with ownership "nobody" (only acceptable if you run a dedicated server with root access), then there is no user to whom the file belongs to, resp. it belongs to server administrator only.


    Solution: (in this sample the file in case is "testfile.php" in folder "testfolder")
    1. download "testfile.php"
    2. enter cPanel => File Manager => public_html
    3. create a folder with name "testfolder2" and there a file "testfile2.php"
    4. upload file "testfile2.php"
    5. delete folder "testfolder" and there file "testfile.php"
    6. rename folder "testfolder2" to "testfolder" and there file "testfile2.php" to "testfile.php"
    7. Mail settings in Joomla can be changed using the global configuration in the administration side of it.
    If you have problems nevertheless, you may send a support ticket. Also download and read HERE

    1. ls or dir
      Directory/file listing
      ls -al : this lists ALL the files and directories along with their details

    2. cd
      Change directory
      So for example to enter the directory 'new', type cd new
      cd ~ go to the home diretory
      cd - go to the last directory you were in
      cd .. go up a directory

    3. cat
      print file contents to the screen
      cat filename.txt will show you the contents of filename.txt

    4. tail
      this is like cat, but only reads the end of the file
      · tail /home/username/public_html/file.txt : see the last 20 (by default) lines of /home/username/public_html/file.txt
      · tail -f /home/username/public_html/file.txt : watch the file continuously, while it's being updated
      · tail -200 /home/username/public_html/file.txt : print the last 200 lines of the file to the screen

    5. more
      like cat, but opens the file one screen at a time rather than all at once
      · more /home/username/public_html/file.txt : browse through file.txt. hit <space> to go to the next page, <q> to quit

    6. pico
      friendly, easy to use editor
      · pico /home/username/public_html/index.html : edit the index page for the user's website.

    7. touch
      create an empty file
      · touch /home/username/public_html/404.html : create an empty file called 404.html in the directory /home/username/public_html/

    8. du
      shows disk usage.
      · du -sh : shows a summary of total disk space used in the current directory, including subdirectories.
      · du -sh * : this does the same thing, but tells you the space usage for each file and directory.

    9. cp
      copy a file
      · cp filename filename.backup : copies filename to filename.backup
      · cp -a /home/home/new_design/* /home/username/public_html/ : copies all files, retaining permissions from one directory to another.

    eNom DNS Setting Definitions


    SLDThe SLD is the second level domain. For example, in "www.myname.com", "myname" is the SLD. If you are creating a new name, fill-in the field provided under "SLD" with only the SLD part of your name. Do not include the ".". The name can have any character ("a" to "z"), any number ("0" to "9 "), the minus ("-") sign, and the underscore ("_") in the name. Spaces are not allowed.
    TLDThe TLD is the top level domain. For example, in "www.myname.com", "com" is the TLD. If you are creating a new name, fill-in the field provided under "TLD" with the TLD part of your name. Do not include the ".". The name can have any character ("a" to "z"), any number ("0" to "9 "), the minus ("-") sign, and the underscore ("_") in the name. Spaces are not allowed.
    AddressThis table associates a name with an address. You can associate any name with any Address. The address is either a numerical designator assigned to a computer on the network, or the host and domain of a machine, or a URL. None can be greater than 58 characters total (if you need more space, for a URL for example, please let us know)

    If you want the record to point to an IP address, you must select either a record type of "Address (A)" or a record type of "Mail (MX)". You must also use the form xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx. The first and fourth xxx are numbers between 1 and 254. The second and third xxx are numbers between 0 and 254. An example of an IP address is: "189.23.125.3". If you are creating a new name, we have already filled-in the "www" host address with a default IP address that will display a web page that you can use to make sure the name is being properly delegated by our servers. This default web page address is "209.19.56.15". You are not required to use this IP address, and in fact, you will probably want to use your own as soon as you can. FYI, some other IP address are: (Netscape 205.188.247.5), (Microsoft 207.46.130.150) and (Yahoo 204.71.200.72).

    If you use a host and domain combination, you must select the record type of "Alias (CNAME)". You must also use the format "www.mydomain.com.".

    If you want the record to be forwarded to a URL you must select "URL" from the drop-down menu and enter a valid URL into the "Address" box.

    If you do not enter a valid name, URL or IP, then that host record (name & address pair) will not be added to the DNS or our database.
    Record typeWe allow five types of address records to be added to our DNS servers. They are as follows:
    • A (Address) Using this type of record allows you to associate a host with an IP address. The IP address that you use does not have to be on your network. For example, you could have the host record for www point to 207.46.130.14 (the address for the Microsoft web site).


    • MXE (Mail Easy) Using a mail record allows you to specify the address of your mail server. When you use a mail record, you must use an IP address in the address field. (Experts: Creating a mail record actually creates both the MX and the A record in DNS. Also, when using multiple mail servers, a preference value of 10 is used on all entries).


    • MX (Mail) Can be either a host name under this domain name (for example, "mail3") or the name of a mail server (for example, "mail.yahoo.com."). NOTE: When using a mail server name, it should end with a period ".". (If you forget the period and we recognize the TLD, we will automatically insert one.).


    • CNAME (Alias) An alias record type is used to associate a host name with another host. The host that you wish to point to does not have to be on your network. For example, you could have the host record for www point to www.microsoft.com. You can also simply use an "@" to represent your domain. Important: When you use a domain in the address field you must add a trailing period ("."). Unless you do so the name server will add your domain to the end of the domain given.


    • URL Redirect URL Redirect is the standard method for URL Forwarding. When the client types in your domain name they are redirected to the web server that your page is hosted on. The only drawback of this method is as the person is looking around the site the URL that is displayed by the browser is the one of the actual web page, not your domain name. If this is a problem you can use the URL Frame method.


    • URL Frame URL Frame is similar to URL Redirect except that instead of redirecting the client to your web page, the web page is displayed in a frame from our web server. With this method the client's browser will display your domain name (for example: www.mydomain.com) while they are using your site and not the actual URL to your page (for example: home.infospace.com/chris33).
      Note: If you use this method of forwarding, you will want to put the 'target="_top"' attribute into any links you have that leave your page.


    • TXT (Text) Provides the ability to associate some text with a host or other name. The TXT record is used to define the Sender Policy Framework (SPF) information record which may be used to validate legitimate email sources from a domain. The SPF record while being increasing deployed is not a formal IETF RFC standard.
    If we receive requests for a record type that is not listed we will consider adding it. We would, however, prefer to keep things as simple as we can in order to eliminate possible confusion.
    E-Mail ForwardingThe E-Mail Forwarding section allows you to create e-mail addresses with your domain name. For example, if your domain name was "mydomain.com", you could create the e-mail address "info@mydomain.com". Note: if you are using e-mail forwarding do not add your own MX record, it will add one for you.
    • User This is the first part of the e-mail address you want to create. For the address "info@mydomain.com", you would put "info" into the blank in the user column.
    • Domain This displays the second part of the e-mail address, this is your domain name. The "User" and "Domain" columns make up the full e-mail address.
    • Forward To This is the e-mail address that you want all the mail coming to the account you just created to be forwarded to. This needs to be a complete, valid e-mail address. It could be an e-mail account you already have from an ISP or a free e-mail account, etc.
