I have a domain name ending in .TK, from freenom and webhosting supplied by bplaced. Do I use freenom's DNS to add info. from bplaced or vice-versa? In other words do I tell the host of the web site about the domain, the other way around or do I have to tell each about the other? The host of the website offer their own domain buying service which confuses things (for me). freenom talk about 20202020 or 20202121 as servers and bplace talk about DNS Crec or records? I'd appreciate someone familiar running through the setup procedure as although they have tried to translate from German to English their instructions are not very clear to me. is this right?
geeteam posted a topic in Technology NewsOn one hand, once we heard that ICANN would be selling off custom top-level domains (meaning instead of just .com, .org, or .net, you could get .anything), it was easy to assume that Google would be applying to get some of those domains. On the other hand, Google is directly responsible for the steady decline of users actually typing in full URL addresses in the first place. An annoyingly large number of users will use Google to search for "www.phonearena.com" rather than simply typing the address into the address bar. And, of course there are plenty of users who are too lazy to type the .com, and will just put "phonearena" in their Google Chome omnibox and then click away fromGoogle applies for .android, .nexus, .moto, and 98 other top-level domains there. Even so, Google has applied for an impressive 101 top-level domains. This is extra impressive because: 1) there were only 2,000 applications, meaning Google has 5% of all applications for the entire world; and, 2) the application fee alone for each of these is $185,000, meaning Google spent a cool $18.7 million just to try to obtain these domains.The list of domains that Google is applying for is varied and has the entries that you would expect, plus quite a few that are just odd. The ones you might expect include .Android, .Nexus, .Moto, .App, .YouTube, .Chrome, .Play, .Plus, .Gmail, .Google, .Search, .Hangout, and more. But, the entries you might not expect get weird and interesting very quickly, including .Dad, .Esq, .Kid, .LOL, .Meme, .PhD, and .Wow. Google hasn't really explained itself much, saying basically that it wants to "make the introduction of new TLDs a good experience for web users". It basically equates to getting more people online (so they can see more Google ads), and making them feel at home once they're on the web. Google says that it has applied for certain domains simply because of the "creative potential", like .LOL. If nothing else, this feels like Google might be building up a catalogue to sell domains like Hover or GoDaddy. Source
I'm not quite sure how to phrase this query so please bear with me...?! I was using DynDNS for a hostname to map a dynamic IP for remote use for a while. Some while back I had actually paid them one time and got one of their better hostnames. Recently they changed their terms and I had to log in once a month to keep it active now that the payment is long gone. I forgot...once...it expired. The only way to get it back is to pay again and I don't want to pay them again. I know there's loads of free dynamic DNS providers and since I am far from my router I don't know which ones it will work with specifically and can't look until I visit there again. Here's what I'm curious about: I have a domain of my own - and supposing I made a subdomain of that for this=> Does anyone know if there's a way to specifically map a subdomain to another specific IP so that it could be used this way ?? I'd greatly appreciate any pointers. Thanks.
