Setting up your domain name


All DNS Max users may manage their own domains or create zones under the thatdns.com domain.

Registering your own domain name

If you do not already have a domain name registered, you may register a domain with any domain name registrar. Algenta Technologies and DNS Max do not provide domain name registration services at this time. Algenta recommends pairNIC at http://www.pairnic.com/.

Configure your domain name with your registrar

When registering a domain, you will be prompted to enter name servers for the domain. Name servers are responsible for translating domain names into IP addresses. This is the service that DNS Max provides. If you have already registered your domain, you should be able to modify the domainís name servers by visiting your registrarís web site.

Provide your registrar with the following information to enable the DNS Max servers to manage your domains.

Register your domain with your DNS Max account

To configure your domain to work with your DNS Max account, complete the following steps after logging in to your account.

Add your domain to your DNS Max account

Click the "DNS Zones" link on the left side of the screen.

The next page will display a list of your DNS zones, if any exist. A DNS zone is a portion of the DNS namespace (e.g., a domain name) that you have control over. Under the "Create a Zone" section is a box with the title, "Create a zone for your own domain name." Type your domain name (like foo.com, without anything like www in front) and click the Create button.

After adding your domain name, it will appear in your list of zones managed by DNS Max. Also, some address records and an MX record will be created for you. You can modify these at any time.

Add hostnames for your domain

After registering your domain with DNS Max, you can manage the zone's records.
