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

administrative and billing contact
Q. Can I TRANSFER a domain name from another
A. Yes. Just Search for a domain name and you will
be offered that option.
Q. How long does it take to TRANSFER a domain

Solutions are not thrilled about loosing business
to another registrar. Whether they drag their feet
or not we can't say but it can take up to a week.
Q. How long until the whois database is
updated for my name?
A. It will probably take 2-3 days after
confirmation for the whois database to be updated.

Q. How does a domain name work and why does

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
find you in a busy metropolis
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
site resides with several thousand other
sites. The receptionist
then provides him the surfer with your
specific apartment number IP address (something like 126.96.36.199)
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
your own apartment
server space with an ISP you are
staying with a friend using a third level domain
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
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
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
Q. Do regular and redirectable domain names
both come with online control panels?
A. No. Only the regular ones do.
Q. Is there a charge to make changes to the
A. Yes. $5.00 per change.
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
Q. What do I have to do to provide my name
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
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
. Open the "Make changes" link. Fill in the new
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.
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
hosting package we will do all that for you.
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.
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.
Q. I have forgotten my password, how can I
and request us to sent it to you. It will be
emailed to the email address that you gave us
Q. Does 1001resources.com D.N.R. offer a
A. At the prices we charge there isn't enough
profit to allow for a reseller program.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org to see if we have
parked the name pending processing. Include your
user name and password.
