FAQ {Top}

Q. How long does the domain name registration process take to be completed?
A. You will receive confirmation from 1001resources.com shortly after registering a name, but the length of time needed to complete the process is dependent upon the updating of the Whois database which we have NO control over. It is usually about 48 hours. However that's not the end of the story as your name will never point to your site unless.... for a regular domain name: the name servers for your host must be submitted via your on-line control panel, or for a redirectable domain name: you MUST have told us the URL that you want the name to point to either via your registration form or via email to 1001@1001resources.com. Want more details?

Q. Does 1001resources.com have any interest in the domain names it registers?
A. Not unless the registration was processed via 1001DiscreteServices.com. 1001resources.com takes no stake in the names it registers.

{Top}

A. 1001resources.com charges a fee of $24.99 a year for our MANAGED domain name service.

{Top}

{Top}

A. It will probably take 2-3 days after confirmation for the whois database to be updated. This is beyond our control.

{Top}

{Top}

Q. How does a domain name work and why does it affect the type of domain name option that I need?
A. Try this analogy.....

Imagine that someone wants to find you in a busy metropolis. First he needs to know your name. He looks up your name in the official voters record and is directed to the receptionist at your large apartment building where you reside with several thousand other people. The receptionist then provides him with your specific apartment number where you can be found.

In simplistic terms the internet is designed to operate in the same way. In order for someone a surfer to find you in a busy metropolis internet he first needs to know your name domain name. He looks up your name in the official voters internic record and is directed to the receptionist name server at your large apartment building web host where you your site resides with several thousand other people sites. The receptionist name server then provides him the surfer with your specific apartment number IP address (something like 216.221.162.82) where you your site can be found.

This all happens in a few seconds but if any segment of this collection of connections is missing the surfer fails to find you. If you officially rent server space from either us or another ISP then you ARE conforming with the design specifications of the internet and can tap directly into the registrar's rather inflexible system.

HOWEVER.... now imagine that instead of having your own apartment somewhere you are staying with a friend or in a homeless shelter and may wander off to another location at any time. You may have a name and even be in the voters record BUT you don't have a specific apartment number and there's no receptionist to tell anyone where you are. The system breaks down. In order to be found you need an official contact point with a receptionist who can redirect enquiries to wherever you may be living at at any particular time.

Here's the internet version.....instead of having your own apartment somewhere rented server space with an ISP you are staying with a friend using a third level domain (such as http://SomeHost/YourSite/ ) or in a homeless shelter a FREE web page and may wander off relocate to another location free page at any time. You may have a name domain name and even be in the voters internic record BUT you don't have a specific apartment number IP address and there is no receptionist name server to tell anyone where you are your site is. The system breaks down. In order to be found you your site needs an official contact point an agent such as 1001DiscountDomains with a receptionist who name server that can redirect enquiries to wherever you may be living your site may be located at any particular time.

If you are going to use a FREE website or a third level domain, then you are NOT conforming with the internet's design specifications. BUT our MANAGED DOMAIN NAME SERVICE can overcome that and "redirect" your name via OUR nameservers to ANY ACCOUNT ON ANY SERVER (including free ones) for just $24.99 a year.

Q. Do regular and redirectable domain names both come with online control panels?
A. No. Only the regular ones do.

{Top}

Q. Is there a charge to make changes to the redirect script?
A. Yes. $5.00 per change.

{Top}

Q. What is a name server?
A. It is a server at your ISP that acts like a receptionist and directs the DNS enquiry to your specific directory. Read this explanation

{Top}

Q. What do I have to do to provide my name server addresses?
A. If you use our feature packed 350MB hosting package we will do everything for you. If not....

Paid server elsewhere... after registration, inform your ISP of your new domain name and ask your him for the IP address of his primary and secondary name servers. We will send you the address of your personal control panel. Log in. From the main menu select "manage name server". Scroll down, enter the name server information. Submit the changes. Log out. FINISHED!
Free host somewhere... During registration of your domain name you will be asked what address you would like the name to point to. Fill in that URL. That's it! If later you want to make changes

{Top}

Q. What do I have to do if I want change the URL my domain name is redirected to?
A. Visit the 1001resources member's area at http://1001resources.com/members/ . Open the "Make changes" link. Fill in the new information. Send.

{Top}

Q If I'm uncomfortable managing my (regular) domain name myself will you do it for me?
A. The control panel is VERY easy to use. The only technical issue relates to your name server which your host will provide, but the answer to the question is "Yes", we will manage it for you and charge $5 each time you want to make changes.

{Top}

Q. My domain name is registered, but my web browser is saying that it has no DNS. Why?
A. Firstly, it can take a little time to do the behind the scenes work needed to complete the process. It will be 24-48 hours for your domain to be entered into the Whois database. Only then will the links that connect to your domain be visible worldwide. Secondly, you must provide the necessary name server information (supplied by your server) and your server must then point to your specific directory before the connection is complete. If you are hosting with 1001resources' powerful 300MB hosting package we will do all that for you.

{Top}

Q. When I make modifications to my regular domain name record via my personal control panel how long before the changes take effect?
A. It is usually immediate but allow 5 minutes. Name Server pointing may take considerably longer.

{Top}

Q. With a redirect facility can I type www.YourName.com/FolderName/ into a browser and get to a folder within my domain?
A. Not at this time.

{Top}

Q. I have forgotten my password, how can I get it?
A.Regular:
Redirectable:
email 1001@1001resources.com and request us to sent it to you. It will be emailed to the email address that you gave us during registration.

{Top}

Q. Does 1001resources.com D.N.R. offer a reseller program?
A. At the prices we charge there isn't enough profit to allow for a reseller program.

{Top}

Q. I got part way through the registration process, but did not complete, can I go back?
A. Sure you can so long as someone else hasn't snapped up the name. Just go through the process again. If the system will not accept the domain name email 1001@1001resources.com to see if we have parked the name pending processing. Include your user name and password.

How do we do it? Well, 1001resources.com is an authorized RSP (registration service provider) for OpenSRS, a SLD (second level domain name) registration service for the .com, .net and .org namespace... names like YourName.com, YourName.net and YourName.org. OpenSRS is not directly accessible by the general public. It is designed for "Internet Solution Providers" like 1001resources.com who process registrations for end users/organizations as part of their solution offering. The system is managed by Canadian internet giant TUCOWS, The Ultimate Collection Of Worthwhile Software, purported to be the worlds largest software download network. It is fully accredited by ICANN, (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers empowered by the U.S federal government to oversee the evolution of the internet), and talks directly to Network Solutions proprietary structures. (Don't you just love all these nerdy abbreviations?)
