Selecting Linux or Windows?

Web hosting is one of the most popular solutions because it offers plenty of flexibility, can scale to your business’s needs, and is reliable. It works by sharing space with others on multiple servers.

With Web hosting, you can upload a website you created somewhere else or that someone created for you. It offers more flexibility than site builders, but requires more experience.

Most hosting companies offer two different Web hosting “platforms:”

  • Linux uses the PHP programming language with MySQL databases.
  • Windows uses the ASP programming language with SQL Server databases.

Because these are not related to your computer, you don’t need to choose Windows if you use a Windows PC. If you’re not sure which one to choose, it’s OK; we’ll help you decide. For more information

If you’ve already decided you need a hosting account, you might get slipped up when you get asked, “Linux or Windows?” Fortunately, there isn’t a big difference between them and either type of account works for most customers.

To make sure you do get the right type of account, though, you should choose the type of hosting account you want based on how you’re building your site.

Development Tool Linux Windows
WordPress® or other Web apps -
Dreamweaver or other WYSIWYG apps -
PHP, MySQL, CGI, Python, or Perl -
ASP, ASP.NET, MS SQL -
I have no idea what any of this means -

It’s important to note that these are just our recommendations. Windows accounts will actually support most of these development tools, but we prefer Linux accounts.

What is A Record/ CNAME?

DNS Element Description
Nameserver Nameservers “point” your domain name to the company that controls its DNS settings. Usually, this will be the company where you registered the domain name.

However, if your website is hosted by another company, sometimes you’ll need to use their nameservers.

Zone File Zone Files are simply the files that store all of your domain’s DNS settings. Your domain name’s Zone File is stored on the company’s nameserver.
A Record A Records point your domain name to an individual server using an IP address. An example IP address is 123.4.67.5.

You can also use A Records to point subdomains (for example subdomain.coolexample.com) to a server’s IP address.

Every domain name has a primary A Record called “@,” which controls what your domain name does when some visits it directly.

CNAME CNAMEs point your subdomains to another server using a server name. Unlike A Records, CNAMEs cannot use IP addresses.

Most domain names have many CNAMEs.

MX Records MX Records point your domain name’s email to its email provider.

How to identify security flaws and vulnerabilities in your published website?

Website Protection Site Scanner identifies security flaws and vulnerabilities in your published website. Vulnerabilities are sort of like holes, and attackers can get in through the holes to make your website perform actions or do things you probably didn’t intend when you created the site.

Website Protection Site Scanner checks up to 6 clicks deep from the main menu and/or 1,000 pages in your website for malicious links, phishing exploits, cross-site scripting (XSS) and more than 3,000 common vulnerabilities and security flaws. Its daily scans detect vulnerabilities such as SQL injection and cross-site scripting in your website by following internal links, submitting forms, posting comments and performing other tests. Scans identify malware and phishing exploits by verifying the URLs in your website with industry-trusted “reputation” resources, such as the Google® Safe Browsing List and PhishTank®.

Scan results display in a scorecard on your account dashboard where Site Scanner ranks issues by severity. Every issue includes details about the vulnerability and suggestions for how to fix it in your website. If you need help, you can contact a security expert using the email address or phone number in the Site Scanner dashboard.

When your website receives a passing score, you can display a date-stamped Site Scanner seal. The seal assures visitors that your site is vigorously scanned daily for security threats and is safe to browse.

Registering Domain Names- Why?

Registering a domain name builds your credibility on the Internet. Use domain names to support your business and assist in creating a dynamic online presence. Your domain name establishes your online identity and increases branding, marketing and communication opportunities. Register multiple domain names to:

  • Keep your competition from registering a domain name that draws customers away from you.
  • Promote the products and services you offer.
  • Drive more traffic to your website.
  • Enjoy more opportunities to market to — and be listed on — search engines.
  • Create distinct advertising strategies to reach different target markets.
  • Provide customers more ways to find you on the Internet.
  • Capture common misspellings of your domain name, instead of sending visitors to an error page.
  • Protect your brand and online identity from unsavory parties.

To get started, check to see if the domain name you want is available. If available, register the domain name for a period of time you specify during the checkout process.

LuckyRegister Process for Handling Expired Domain Names

The process we, the registrar, follow for expired domain names depends on your domain name extensions and their renewal settings. Prior to expiration, we send multiple emails to remind you to renew your domain names.

If you set your domain names to automatically renew, we attempt to renew the registrations for you the day after expiration. If we are unable to bill you, we park your expired domain names and notify you via email again.

If you set your domain names to manually renew and you let your domain names expire, we park your expired domain names and notify you via email again the day after expiration.

For expired .com, .net, .org, .info, .biz, .us, .ws, .name, .cc, .mobi, .me, or .tv domain name registrations, we hold your domain name for approximately 42 days before canceling it. Domain name renewal during this period is subject to applicable renewal and redemption fees

 

Automatic Renewal

If you set the domain name to automatic renewal, when your domain name registration expires, we take the following steps before canceling it:

  • On the day after your domain name registration’s expiration date, we attempt to bill you for the domain name renewal. If we cannot renew the domain name (for example, your card on file expired), we notify you of the domain name registration’s expiration and park your domain name. You can manually renew your domain name.
  • On the 5th and 12th days after expiration, we email you additional notifications. You can manually renew your domain name.
  • On the 19th day after expiration, your domain name remains on hold but becomes subject to a redemption fee. You can call customer support to renew your domain name, subject to any applicable renewal and redemption fees.
  • On the 25th day after expiration, we put your domain name up for auction with a domain name industry auction service. You can manually renew your domain name, subject to any applicable renewal and redemption fees.
  • On the 42nd day after expiration, we cancel your domain name. We delete all services associated with the domain name.

The registry might hold the domain name before releasing it for general domain registration.

Manual Renewal
