Some Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Is this where I change my DNS records?
No, that can be done through the domain manager,
using the DNS link.
2. I'm totally confused...

fine with DNS from their website hosts, or our forwarding
services, and won't need to use DNS Service at all.
3. How do I set up a Mail Exchange server/ Website Hosting
The DNS Service is similar to the Change DNS/Hosting link, in
that we allow you to specify the DNS servers of your host, but
it is still up to your host to configure everything properly.

4. Who will be hosting my domain/website/email?
We will host your domain, and will allow you to specify the IP
address or hostname of your MX Record, CNAME Record or ANAME
Record. You will be responsible for the hosting and
configuration of your website or email, of course.
5. Is there anything I can't do?
