domain management



Managing domains is a tricky business that requires a detailed knowledge of the inner workings of the world-wide-web and address mapping technologies. It needs seasoned professionals.

Domain Management

Domain Name
  NB. Please do not include http://, www. or similar prefixes.

Domain Management, sometimes called Domain Hosting, involves the setting and maintaining of the DNS entries that the world-wide-web uses to indicate where traffic for that domain should be directed.

The world-wide-web is run on a "gentlemen's agreement" basis and relies on everyone managing the DNS mapping system correctly - however human error can creep in from time to time and DNS entries can become overwritten by others. In this instance it is important that a professional organisation, such as RapidHost is managing your DNS data so that it can quickly establish and rectify the problem. The alternative is your website or internet service being "invisible" for an extended period of time.

Note - DNS management services are only available as an add-on service included with other RapidHost internet services.
