Domain Registration and Management at JTAN

Before we even can talk about domain registration, we need to be sure you understand the difference between domain registration, DNS, and a web site. If you don't understand the difference between these three things, read this immediately.

Now, if we are really talking domain registration, there are several possibilities. Click on the one that applies to you.



If you transfer or register com/org/net domains through JTAN you agree to be bound by the JTAN Domain Registration Agreement, given here, as well as the latest Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) established by ICANN. The latest UDRP is available at ICANN. A recent copy of it is posted here at JTAN.

For ca domains, registration is bound by the CA Registration Agreement.

Managing domains not registered with JTAN

If we aren't the registrar, I'm afraid that for some things we will be unable to help you very much. You really need to contact the company that holds your registration for support relevant to registration changes. It might help you to read through the following section to understand how to configure your registrar to point to our DNS for your domain.

Do It Yourself Registration Using JTAN DNS

Registering domains yourself is not hard and can save money, but you will need to understand the difference between a Registrar versus a web/mail host or a DNS server. JTAN can do web/mail hosting, and serve your DNS, and we can also be your registrar. It's easy to get confused these days with the everchanging registrar system. Your registrar is who you pay to actually register the name in the .com or .net zone, but registration doesn't have to include any other service.

For example, DNS is a separate thing. DNS tells the world what machine your pages are on and where your mail goes. All the registrar is supposed to do is keep track of who does the DNS for a given domain.

If you already have your name registered and you want to continue to use the same registrar, but you do want JTAN to serve DNS for you, you will need to go to your registrar and tell them to move your DNS servers to JTAN. If your registrar was NetworkSolutions, you would simply go to the Network Solutions page and click "Make Changes" to alter your DNS to point at JTAN as described below.

For new registrations, you also might be stumped by the DNS question. DNS is the system by which your name is "served" on the net. You can use JTAN as your DNS or you can pick somebody else. The DNS servers you should list on your application are shown here.

After you submit your registration (and pay the registrar), you are registered. Now it's time to enable DNS and set up your DNS records. If JTAN is doing DNS for you, we will will need to know what your domain name is. You may have already told us this when you signed up for your ProShell/DNS account. If you didn't, contact us. A copy of the confirmation email you get from the registrar is a nice way to tell us.

Once we know your domain, we set up DNS "records" such that mail sent to anyone@yourdomain.com is automatically forwarded as you have selected. Similarly, web hits to http://www.yourdomain.com are sent to your JTAN user web page.

That's all there is to it. If you want some more mailboxes or aliases, you can set them up at the JTAN Members Only area.
