Domain names are public, which means that contact information is available with WHOIS queries. Protect your personal information with our Privacy feature.
Enabling this feature will allow you to easily and quickly point your domain name to another website.
Gain full control over your domain by managing its DNS Zone. Change, edit and manage the A, CNAME, MX and TXT records of your domain.
Security matters. Secure your domain name against slamming, hijacking or other forms of unauthorized modifications.
Transferring a domain from another registrar will require the following:
Please note that a transfer process can take up to 7 days to be completed once.
When a domain name reaches its expiry date, it goes through a series of statuses before it is liberated entirely. As the owner of a domain that reaches its expiry, you can retrieve the domain easily in the first 40 days. Then there are certain modalities to go through, depending how interesting your domain might be. More details below.
If a domain name has expired, but is still within the 40 day Grace Period, the top of the web page may display a renewal reminder message three days after the expiry date. During the Grace Period, the domain name is still considered to be owned by the registrant, and the WHOIS information continues to display the registrant's information (or WHOIS Privacy, if applicable).
It is still available for renewal by the current domain owner for 40 days.
After the 40 day Grace Period, if the domain name has not been renewed, it may be queued for deletion and eventually dropped or auctioned off.
During this period, if the domain name is not in the Live Auction (meaning no one has shown interest in the domain), the domain name is still considered to be owned by the registrant. The WHOIS information displays a Contact Privacy address.
The fees to recuperate a domain in the redemption period are 120$ for all domains, except .CA domains that are 35$. These prices include the domain renewal.
Important: Once the domain name is queued to enter the Live Auction, it cannot be redeemed by the original registrant. This means that the only way to recuperate the domain is to bid on the domain in the Live Auction.
After the Redemption Period, if the domain name has not been auctioned off and acquired by another party, it is dropped and made available for re-registration by the general public. Anyone who wants to buy the domain name after that must contact the new registrant.
If you wish to have your own ns1.yourdomain.com / ns2.yourdomain.com, you can! This is useful for resellers that do not want to specify their own web hosting provider's evident DNS (such as ns1.panelbox.net). This will make your clientele feel that your are in control of all their hosting needs. You will need to complete the following tasks:
You can now use your own personalized Name Servers for your domains
A DNS zone refers to a certain portion or administrative space within the global Domain Name System (DNS). All entries within a domain's zone, such as subdomains (sub.domain.com), or an MX record (which specifies the server location of emails) are within this zone. Where is this located? It depends what DNS you are using. We offer certain alternatives ourselves: our own hosting space or our managed DNS at the registry level. The zones are accessible through the hosting platform's management interface, or through the domain management interface accordingly. Here is a visual example of a DNS Zone file:
The name is derived from the word commercial and was meant for commercial use. However registration restrictions were never enforced and the domain is now a general purpose name space. Although there are no official restrictions, the registrant and admin contact must contain a business name for which the .com is registered for.
.ca is the internet country code for Canada. The registrant must have a Canadian presence to register a .ca domain name.
The .biz domain space is a phonetical abbreviation of the word business, and is meant to be registered for businesses. No prior restriction on registration, but registrations can be challenged if the registrant is not a bona-fide commercial entity.
.be is the internet country code for Belgium. However, .be is an open registry; you do not have to be a Belgium resident or business operator to register this domain. Can only be registered for 1 year at a time.
.eu is the internet country code for the European Union. Registrants must be located within the EEA.
