If you have your own domain (eg. .COM, .NET, .CO.CC, etc...) you can easily use it with our service to build your site under your own domain through Add-on Domains which essentially allows you to run more than one site under an account.
If your DNS has been updated properly you will receive a success message and the appropriate files will be created in your file structure to use the domain.
If you receive an error, the issue is most likely that not enough time has passed between changing the nameservers and adding the domain, it can take upto 24~72 hours, however usually less than 4 hours in most cases.
This will remove not only the domain but also the files, domain records and e-mail so remember to take a backup beforehand.
If you intend on re-adding it later allow at least one (1) hour to pass before attempting to add the domain to the same or any other account you may have on the same service.
A parked domain is much like having two or more addresses for one site, for instance you could have the .net and .org versions of your domain all parked on the .com add-on domain so all three load the same website.
If your DNS has been updated properly you will receive a success message and be able to type the domain to access the site you parked it on.
If you receive an error then most likely not enough time has passed between changing the nameservers and adding it to your control panel which can take between 24~72 hours (usually less than 4 hours on average).
This will only remove the parked domain, it will not remove any files, e-mails or other information and, if you intend to re-add it either as a parked or add-on domain, to this or any other account on the same service, allow at least one (1) hour to pass before attempting to do so.
Subdomains are easy ways to expand your site into various sections or sub-sites, for instance you can have forums.example.com for your forums for easy and direct access.
Once completed and if the subdomain is available, a new subdomain record will appear in the list below and a new folder will be created in your file structure to use the subdomain.
This will remove the subdomain, including any files, e-mails or other information associated with that subdomain so ensure you have a backup prior to removal.
Custom DNS records can be useful when you want to use third-party services for certain functions or to provide enhanced functionality to your site using your domain.
For instance, you can use Google Apps Standard Edition for e-mail and other functions for your site.
MX Records are used to route your e-mail through your domain and tell it what machine is handling your e-mail.
You should only have the MX records of one service provider on your domain at any given time or you may encounter issues with mail being routed to multiple locations at random.
It would be wise to note the records you are deleting just in case you have to re-add them including the priority of each one.
That is all that is needed to start routing your mail to third-party mail providers which you prefer.
CNAME records are records used to associate a new record (eg. mail.example.org) with an existing record (eg. ghs.google.com) this makes it so you anytime ghs.google.com changes its records, you do not have to change your records too.
Remember, you must configure a CNAME record on both sides so once you have it set in your control panel, visit your service provider and add the same record for their service if necessary.
Below are the necessary nameservers you should use in configuring your domain, you will need at minimum two (2) if you cannot use all four.
