Full DNS Control - with DNS Manager

The Domain Name System, or DNS, is the means by which computers connected to the Internet get information about each other. The individual pieces of information are known as records; each record is of a certain type. Computers look up records for a domain by asking the name server for the domain about the records relevant to that domain. We offer full DNS control with your domain name. You can create and edit A, MX, CNAME, TXT and SPF records with ease. Full DNS management is included with every domain name registration.

Instant activating

Domains are registered as soon as you order them, however it can take between 24 and 72 hours for them to become visible on the Internet.

Web Forwarding (multiple types)

Web forwarding lets you forward your domain name to another web address, for example you could forward your domain name to some free web space you have with your Internet service provider or if you are registering multiple domain extensions with the same name you could use it to point the .com version of a domain to the .co.uk version.

Automatic Redirect

There are two types of web forwarding: the first is automatic redirection, where the user's web browser is sent to the new web address that you specify, so the domain name will not be visible in the address bar of the user's web browser.

Framed Redirect

To have your domain name showing in the address bar you must use the second method - a framed redirect. With a framed redirect your web address is visible in your web browser's address bar. You can also set the title that is shown in the web browser and the meta keywords and a description of your website that search engines use to index your site.

Unlimited Email Forwarding

Email Forwarding allows you to forward any email address @yourdomain.co.uk to any email address you choose, for example a btinternet.com or gmail.com address. You can forward each address to up to ten different addresses.
