You have questions, we have answers

  • A domain is a unique name that represents a specific subset of the internet. It consists of a second-level domain (e.g., “example” in “”) and a top-level domain (e.g., “.com”). Domains make it easier to navigate the web and locate resources by associating human-friendly names with unique IP addresses. They are essential for accessing websites and sending emails online.

  • A domain manager, also known as a domain management tool or domain registrar, is a service or software that allows individuals or organizations to manage their domain names. It serves as a central hub for handling various domain-related tasks and settings.

  • DNS records are crucial components of the Domain Name System infrastructure. They store information about a domain name’s settings and help direct internet traffic to the right destination. Some common types of DNS records include A (IPv4 address), AAAA (IPv6 address), CNAME (alias), MX (mail exchange), TXT (text), NS (name server), and SOA (start of authority) records. Each record serves a specific purpose, such as mapping domain names to IP addresses, managing email servers, and providing essential domain information. DNS records are essential for the smooth functioning of internet services and are managed by the domain owner’s registrar or DNS hosting provider.

  • To find your DNS records settings, log in to your domain registrar or DNS hosting provider’s website. Navigate to the domain management section, choose the specific domain, and access the “DNS Records” or “DNS Zone Editor” option. There, you can view, edit, add, or delete DNS records for your domain. If you encounter any issues, contact customer support for assistance.

  • DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail) records are DNS records used to implement email authentication for a domain. They add a digital signature to outgoing emails using cryptographic keys. Receiving mail servers then use the public key from the domain’s DKIM record to verify the signature’s authenticity. DKIM helps prevent email spoofing and ensures the integrity of email content during transit. Setting up DKIM involves publishing the public key in a TXT record in the domain’s DNS settings.

  • MX records (Mail Exchange records) are DNS records that indicate the mail servers responsible for receiving email messages for a specific domain. They contain the mail server’s priority and address information. When someone sends an email to an address associated with the domain, the sender’s mail server uses the MX records to determine where to deliver the email. Lower priority values have higher precedence, and multiple MX records allow for redundancy in case the primary mail server is unavailable. MX records are essential for ensuring accurate email delivery and are managed through the domain registrar’s or DNS hosting provider’s control panel.

  • SPF (Sender Policy Framework) records are a type of DNS record set up to help prevent email spoofing. Essentially, SPF records are rules set up by a domain owner, in which they set authorized servers that can be officially used to send emails from their domain.

  • Verification of DNS changes like DKIM records can take up to 48 hours due to DNS propagation. During this time, the changes must propagate across DNS servers worldwide, and caching settings play a role in the delay. Although it often takes less time, allowing 48 hours ensures the changes are fully effective on all servers. From the moment you start verifying your domain, we’ll periodically send out a request to check your registrar’s DNS record and see whether they’ve been updated. Once we receive confirmation that your records match the ones we provided, your domain’s status will switch to Active, even if it’s only been a few minutes. If there is an issue, we’ll keep checking until the 48 hours are up and let you know what exactly went wrong. If you notice something’s off while your domain is still Pending, you can restart verification to make things a bit quicker.

  • If you don’t remember your domain registrar, follow these steps to find out:

    • Check your email for domain registration-related messages.
    • Use a WHOIS lookup tool to find the registrar’s name for your domain.
    • Check domain registration records using the ICANN WHOIS Lookup tool.
    • Contact your hosting provider to inquire about the registrar.
    • Search your files for domain registration invoices or contracts.
    • Reach out to previous web developers or administrators who might have this information.
    • Use a domain registrar directory to search for your domain.
