Domain Name Your Domain Name is your (or your company's) identity in cyberspace. In all our web pages and Support pages, when we say "your domain name" we just mean the name plus the extension, i.e. we mean domain.com, not http://domain.com/, domain, or www.domain.com. Everywhere you see "your domain name" or "your_domain" or "domain.com" as an example, you just use your own domain name.


Propagation Delay Each domain name is "hosted" on a pair of computers called "nameservers." These computers are responsible for telling the world where your domain name points.

When information about your domain name changes, like which web server has your site, or where your e-mail goes, there is a period of 1 to 3 days when the information about your domain has not yet reached all the computers of the world. This is known as "propagation delay."

This means that if you switched mailservers, for instance, for a few days some mail would still go to the old e-mail account.

Whenever you add or modify a service, there will probably be propagation delay. It is a normal part of the Internet.



Password Your password is necessary for using your e-mail, and uploading and maintenance of your site. You should not send your password through e-mail unless it is absolutely necessary.

If you have a standard Business account, your FTP, and Telnet passwords are all really the same password. See here for information on changing your password.



POP POP stands for "Post Office Protocol" and is the method that e-mail programs, such as Eudora, Netscape Mail, Microsoft Exchange, et cetera, use to retrieve e-mail.


UserID Your UserID is how you are identified to our security sensitive network. Your UserID will be assigned to you  for more info Click Here.
