F.A.Q

 

  • 1. What is a Domain Name?

    A domain name is your address on the Internet. Like any address, it is important for the success of your business that you use, promote and protect it so that customers can find you easily. More than this, your domain name is your online-identity and brand - your customers won't just know you as Your company Inc., they will know you as "yourcompany.com".

    Domain names were developed to make it easy for people to find things on the Internet. computers find each other by using a set of numbers called an IP Address (IP is an acronym for Internet Protocol), these look like 69.72.214.243. The Domain Name System (DNS) is a set of software and computers that translates domain names into their matching IP addresses and visa versa.

    When you type www.netlynx.com into your web-browser, your request gets resolved (or converted) into an IP address and the information found at that address gets delivered back to your browser.

  • 4. How can I get a Domain Name?

    You can get a Domain name registered from one of the Domain name registrars. The pricing for Domains varies from registrar to registrar. Some registrars dupe their customers by charging exhorbitant fees for domain registration. Somethimes in tune of $ 35 per year. Some others can offer you the same domain at $ 7.99. It does not matter which registrar you choose to get your domain registered. As ultimately the domain records are going to be held by the registry.

    We at Netlynx make the Domain registration process extremely simple. Here are the three easy steps to get your Domain.


    • Signup for your Domain name from the New client Login Link on the website

    • Place the order for your domain name entering all details.

    After registration, you can book the server space to host your website and commence the website development work.

  • 5. What are the different components of a domain name?
    A domain name is a combination of two or more words. The last word is called "Top Level Domain". A Top-Level Domain (TLD) is the suffix that is attached to the end of a domain name. For instance, in the domain name, netlynx.com, ".com" is the TLD. Generic Top Level Domains (gTLD) such as .com, .org, .net, can be registered by anybody. To the left of TLD comes "Second Level Domain"(SLD). e.g. in 'netlynx.org', netlynx is the second level domain, '.com' is the TLD. One can also have 'domains.netlynx.com', here 'domains' is called the host name or "Third Level Domain".
  • 6. What is the difference between TLD's i.e. .com, .org and .net?
    There is no significant difference between the 3 TLD's. These are just a few options and you can even avail all of them as 3 separate domain registrations. Now you can also register biz, info, .us, .cc, .tv, .co.in etc domains. Thus it becomes easier for you to get a particular domain name that was already registered in the previously available TLDs.
  • 7. Who can register a Domain Name?
    Any entity such as Individuals, Organizations, ISPs, corporates, Resellers, etc in any type of profession can register a domain to get a recognition on the Internet.
  • 8. Who is a Registrant?
    The Registrant is the individual or organisation who registers a domain name. This person, after certain conditions are met, and upon payment of the registration fees, holds the right to use that specific domain name for a specified period of time. This person is the "legal entity" bound by the terms of the Registration Agreement. The Registrant is in technical terms the "SLD holder". This stands for the holder of a Second Level Domain.
  • 9. can the name of the registrant of the Domain Name be changed once it has been registered?
    Yes, Once you register your domain name through Netlynx, all modifications in the domain details can be done by just logging into your client Interface. There please click on the Modify Domain Button against your domain.
  • 10. What are the 3 contacts Admin, Technical and Billing?

  • 11. How can I change the information in the contacts later?

  • 12. Will a change in the address of contacts make a difference?
    No. We at Netlynx give you total control over your domain. You are the owner of all domains registered through us and also reserve the right to change any Domain details as per your requirements and convenience.
  • 13. Who is a Registrar?
    A Registrar is an organization that registers domain names on behalf of a Registrant. Registrars must receive accreditation from ICANN and be technically certified by the Registry before they can register domain names in the Registry.

    The Internet corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is a technical coordination body for the Internet. created in October 1998 by a broad coalition of the Internet's business, technical, academic, and user communities, ICANN is assuming responsibility for a set of technical functions previously performed under U.S. government contract by IANA and other groups.

    Specifically, ICANN coordinates the assignment of the following identifiers that must be globally unique for the Internet to function:

    Internet domain names
    IP address numbers
    protocol parameter and port numbers
    In addition, ICANN coordinates the stable operation of the Internet's root server system.

    As a non-profit, private-sector corporation, ICANN is dedicated to preserving the operational stability of the Internet; to promoting competition; to achieving broad representation of global Internet communities; and to developing policy through private-sector, bottom-up, consensus-based means. ICANN welcomes the participation of any interested Internet user, business, or organization.
  • 14. What is an IP address?
    An IP address is a numeric address associated with every computer on the Internet to identify its location. As an example it is much easier to remember netlynx.com than its IP address, which could be 69.72.214.243 (IP stands for Internet Protocol).

    The Internet Protocol (IP) is the method or protocol by which data is sent from one computer to another on the Internet. Each computer (known as a host) on the Internet has at least one IP address that uniquely identifies it from all other computers on the Internet. When you send or receive data (for example, an e-mail note or a Web page), the message gets divided into little chunks called packets. Each of these packets contains both the sender's Internet address and the receiver's address. Any packet is sent first to a gateway computer that understands a small part of the Internet. The gateway computer reads the destination address and forwards the packet to an adjacent gateway that in turn reads the destination address and so forth across the Internet until one gateway recognizes the packet as belonging to a computer within its immediate neighborhood or domain. That gateway then forwards the packet directly to the computer whose address is specified.
  • 15. What is Domain Name System?
    Domain Name System (DNS) translates alphanumeric domain name to its numeric IP address that a computer understands, i.e., DNS will translate www.netlynx.com to 69.72.214.243, its IP address on the web.
    The domain name system (DNS) is the way that Internet domain names are located and translated into Internet Protocol addresses. A domain name is a meaningful and easy-to-remember "handle" for an Internet address.

    Because maintaining a central list of domain name/IP address correspondences would be impractical, the lists of domain names and IP addresses are distributed throughout the Internet in a hierarchy of authority. There is probably a DNS server within close geographic proximity to your access provider that maps the domain names in your Internet requests or forwards them to other servers in the Internet.
  • 16. How can I change Domain Name Server?
    All modifications in the domain details can be done by just logging into your client Interface. There please click on the Modify Domain Button against your domain.
  • 17. What should I do if I have registered my Domain Name elsewhere and now wish to host my site on your server?
    We will give you the name servers of our hosting server and you will have to get them changed in the Domain Name's DNS information. For further details, please send a mail to sales@netlynx.com
  • 18. What is Universal Resource Locator?
    A URL (Uniform Resource Locator) (pronounced YU-AHR-EHL or, in some quarters, UHRL) is the address of a file (resource) accessible on the Internet. The type of resource depends on the Internet application protocol. Using the World Wide Web's protocol, the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), the resource can be an HTML page (like the one you're reading), an image file, a program such as a common gateway interface application or Java applet, or any other file supported by HTTP. The URL contains the name of the protocol required to access the resource, a domain name that identifies a specific computer on the Internet, and a hierarchical description of a file location on the computer.

    On the Web (which uses the Hypertext Transfer Protocol), an example of a URL is:
    tutorials/index.html

    which describes a Web page to be accessed with an HTTP (Web browser) application that is located on a computer named www.netlynx.com. The specific file is in the directory named /tutorials and is the default page in that directory (which, on this computer, happens to be named index.html).

    An HTTP URL can be for any Web page, not just a home page, or any individual file.

    A URL for a program such as a forms-handling common gateway interface script written in Perl might look like this:
    http://www.hungamamasti.com/forum/index.php

    A URL for a file meant to be downloaded would require that the "ftp" protocol be specified like this one:
    ftp://www.somecompany.com/whitepapers/widgets.ps

  • 25. How do I know if a domain name is available?
