- 4.1. What is a domain name?
- Domain names are the familiar, easy to remember names for
computers on the Internet (such as internic.net). They correspond
to a series of numbers (called Internet Protocol numbers) that
serve as routing addresses on the Internet. Domain names are used
generally as a convenient way of locating information and reaching
others on the Internet.
- 4.2. What does "register a domain
- The Internet domain name system (DNS) consists of a directory,
organized hierarchically, of all the domain names and their
corresponding computers registered to particular companies and
persons using the Internet. When you register a domain name, it
will be associated with the computer on the Internet you designate
during the period the registration is in effect.
- 4.3. How can I get a domain name in
.com, .net or .org?
- H-Sphere provides an easy way to register .com, .net or .org
- 4.4. What is involved in registering
a domain name in .com, .net or .org?
- To register a domain name, you will be asked to provide the
registrar you select with the various contact and technical
information that makes up the registration. H-Sphere will guide
you through the process, and will make it extremely easy. H-Sphere
will automatically contact the registrar, who will then keep
records of the contact information and submit the technical
information to a central directory known as the "registry." This
registry provides other computers on the Internet the information
necessary to send you e-mail or to find your web site. You will
also be required to enter a registration contract with the
registrar, which sets forth the terms under which your
registration is accepted and will be maintained.
- 4.5. Will my name and contact
information be publicly available?
- Yes. Information about who is responsible for domain names is
publicly available to allow rapid resolution of technical problems
and to permit enforcement of consumer protection, trademark, and
other laws. The registrar will make this information available to
the public on a "Whois" site.
- 4.6. How long does a domain name
registration last? Can it be renewed?
- H-Sphere provides you with the ability to register and renew
the domain registrations in one-year increments, with a total
registration period limit of ten years.
- 4.7. How much does a domain name
registration name cost?
- The prices vary depending on the plan you select.
- 4.8. How long does it take to
register or transfer a domain name?
- It will take you just a few minutes to register a domain, but
it might not be available on the Internet for up to 48 hours. This
is due to the fact that Internet DNS databases are updated only
once a day, causing the delay.
- 4.9. Someone else has registered by
company's name as a .com domain name. What is the process for
resolving my complaint?
- All ICANN-accredited registrars follow a uniform dispute
resolution policy. Under that policy, disputes over entitlement to
a domain-name registration are ordinarily resolved by court
litigation between the parties claiming rights to the
registration. Once the court rules who is entitled to the
registration, the registrar will implement that ruling. In
disputes arising from registrations allegedly made abusively (such
as "cybersquatting" and cyberpiracy"), the uniform policy provides
an expedited administrative procedure to allow the dispute to be
resolved without the cost and delays often encountered in court
litigation. In these cases, you can invoke the administrative
procedure by filing a complaint with one of the dispute-resolution
service providers listed at
http://www.icann.org/udrp/approved-providers.htm. For more details
on the uniform dispute resolution policy, see
- 4.10. What are the rules for
registration of .net and .org names?
- They are the same as for .com. Traditionally, however, names
in .net have been used by organizations involved in Internet
infrastructure activities and .org is frequently used by
- 4.11. Are .com, .net, and .org
domain names available for registration on a global basis?
- Yes. The .com, .net, and .org domains are available for
registration by Internet users across the globe. ICANN-accredited
domain name registrars are also located in various countries
around the world. To view the InterNIC list of domain name
registrars by country, click here.
- 4.12. I've seen domain names ending
with two-letter combinations, like .uk. What are the rules for
registering in these domains?
- Two letter domains, such as .uk, .de and .jp (for example),
are called country code top level domains (ccTLDs) and correspond
to a country, territory, or other geographic location. The rules
and policies for registering domain names in the ccTLDs vary
significantly and some are reserved for use by citizens of the
corresponding country. You should check with the registrar
offering ccTLD registration services regarding the specific terms
and conditions for registration. H-Sphere supports hosting of such
- 4.13. What is a stopgap
- A stopgap domain allows to create hosting if you don`t have
any domain name. If you register with a stopgap domain, you will
get a domain name like "loginname.u1.your-base-domain". You can
create your own web-site and access it with either the IP (if the
IP is dedicated) or the above domain name. This kind of domain
doesn`t have any registration records in the DNS.
- 5.1. Anonymous FTP users don't see the content
of my directory.
- Anonymous FTP users can't enter your root directory. They can
enter only the directory you dedicated for anonymous ftp
- 5.2. How come my virtual FTP users can browse
my root directory?
- Your virtual FTP users can have access to more than one
virtual FTP directory, so you need to allow them to enter the root
dir. You can use FTP subaccounts to restrict their access to only
- 6.1. When I'm trying to connect to
my account using FTP, the system doesn't respond for some time and
then logs out with an error.
- Use FTP active mode (disable passive). It is in your
computer's FTP configuration.
- 6.2. I am getting errors with
- Try switching it off and back on.
- 6.3. My webalizer doesn't work.
What's the problem?
- One possible reason can be that you are approaching your disk
quota. Webalizer needs at least 2 MB unused disk space to function
- 6.4. The online file browser shows
the zips as compressed files and offers to decompress them, but
fails to do it.
- WebShell can decompress only those files that are located
inside the /usr/local/bin directory. If it's not there, just
create a link.
- 6.5. I get "Failed to add new
resource over the hard credit" message when I'm trying to create a
- This means you have reached your Credit Limit. For example,
you've used all your money on your balance if you pay by check, or
your credit card expired/was broken and failed to be charged. In
this case you'll still be able to run your hosting account (with
recurrent and extra usage payment accrued), but you won't be able
to create any new resource (neither paid nor free).
- 6.6. ASP is not working, however
the button next to this resource on the Domain Web Service page is
set to ON.
- Check if the *.asp files are not included into SSI section.
It's a common mistake. If you set the *.asp files to be lauched
via SSI library, set ASP to OFF, delete the *.asp extension from
SSI list and then set ASP to ON again.
- 6.7. My SiteStudio doesn't work
