The Internet domain (web address) - allows you to determine your identity or your business on the web. In addition, allows you to define additional services in the selected address, eg. E-mail address. By definition, it is a sequence of system names Domain Name Server (DNS) used on the Internet, consisting of the name and the tip of example. Zencommerce.in domain name can be arbitrary if it is not registered by another person or company, and the extension must choose from available at of the domain registrar.
What can exploit domain?
With domain can bind a number of useful services, the most popular are:
- The website address, store, blog, etc. Eg .: example.com
- Mail Accounts: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Sub-domain, eg .: blog.example.com
- FTP Accounts: provides the ability to manage files located on the server
Designations .com, .co.in, .in etc.
Domain can be purchased with different extensions. The most popular extensions on the Indian market is .com and .co.in. Our domain can be more regional in nature if we choose for our end of the town, eg. mumbai.com . If the target group is not only the people of Indian, consider the domain of the tip of the .au or .com . For frequently used extensions are also:
- .org - for organizations
- .net - mainly for companies connected to the Internet
- .edu - educational institutions
Sub-domain - the Internet address created under the purchased domain. Address sub-domain is terminated in any case the domain name. For example, for the domain zencommerce.in, you can create additional addresses:
- demo.zencommerce.in - sub-domain created for the purposes of the demo version
- blog.zencommerce.in - sub-domain created for the purpose of a blog
- sugestie.zencommerce.in - sub-domain created for the purpose of suggestions forum
Each domain owner has the ability to create sub-domains on your own or through a customer service hosting and / or domain registrar.
Domain Name System - The DNS identifies the internet domain names and their links with IP addresses, converts addresses (domain names) well known example. zencommerce.in on the IP addresses of existing computer networks, eg. 22.214.171.124 . From a technical point of view, is a system of protocols, servers, and services that support a database of network addresses.
With domain service related to a number of services, which by default operate under a single server. Domain records give us the ability to configure these services. With the configuration records can redirect the selected service on another server.
Host record, this is the main DNS record. Combines a domain or sub-domain to an IP address. If you change only the A record domain selected external server IP address, the server will keep the current opportunity to use all the other services (email, FTP, etc.).
Mail exchange record, stands. Mail Exchange . If you do not want to use the mail service on the server where you keep the domain, we can using the MX record redirect your mail to another server. In some cases, even add multiple MX records .If your message can not be delivered by the record of the first priority, using the record of the second priority, etc. For each domain, you can define a remote server that supports e-mail. This configuration consists of adding / changing the MX record for domain entries.
The SOA record
Start of Authority - in this record are stored in the identity of the domain.
ang. name server - these are the records of name servers. Determine which servers will provide information domain's DNS. For each domain must be defined two NS records. Most are NS records primary and secondary name server. NS records are updated with your domain registrar / hosting company, and that their update takes effect after about 24-72 hours.
Alias to another host. CNAME records, or canonical name records (ang. canonical name ) records are aliases A. This option is used if you wish to redirect certain calls to another host. For every CNAME record, you can choose an alias and host. CNAME records are used, inter alia, to configure an alias for a domain with the www prefix to enter the address of both the www prefix and without it would show the same website.
If you buy a new domain should be aware of several important issues. The domain is an important part of the brand, it is worth to address was easy to remember and associate with activities. The domain should not contain any special characters like #, $, * etc. The permitted number of characters 3-63.

Terms of the purchase domain - the domain must be free - domain should consist of a name and an extension such. example.com (on the Indian market and we tip .com, .co.in)
Register a free domain
When you register a domain, the address is owned by a person for which it is registered. The domain owner has the opportunity to dispose of any domain also in the formal sense. Domain can be sold to another owner (domain transfer), or you can transfer the domain to another domain registrar (another company which provides services domains).

The second option to buy the domain occupied, is in direct contact with the owner of the domain. The owner is possible to find through news services that provide information of the WHOIS . Eg. http://mxtoolbox.com .
Renewal of Domain
Domain registration provides annual maintenance domain. For most domains are offered promotions, by which domain maintenance in the first year does not involve high costs. To ensure the continuity of the store or website, be sure to extend the domain (in the majority of suppliers should come to notice). If you fail to renew within a domain, the domain expires and all related services are not active (web, mail, FTP accounts etc.). in / .co.in / .com etc can be renewed even after 30 days from the date of expiry. But if you dont renew domain from the 30 days of expiry, domain goes in redumption and redumption / restoration cost of the domain would vary in chanrges as set by domain service provider.

Mail does not come, come to me feedback messages
If the mail does not reach the addressee or the mailbox owner should first figure out whether the sender of the message sometimes does not receive a return message sent automatically by the mail server in certain cases. Below are 4 main reasons why the message could not be delivered to:
- unroutable address - the address does not exist (usually error or typo in the address), or not available at the moment (eg. if the domain has not been paid)
- mailbox full / mailbox quota exceeded - box overflowing, the recipient account requires the removal of messages because the available space is used.
- The attachment size Exceeds the allowable limit - Annex exceeded the limit allowed by the sender's server
- spamcannibal or similar names - the sender's server is located in the spam list is taken into account by the recipient server, therefore, the message can not be accepted.
If the return message is another reason, please contact the administrator of the server that hosts the mail. You can also look for information yourself on Google with the error
Mail will not work if the service this service is not assigned to a specific server. For example, if you want to use a company mail server Zencommerce (zencommerce.in) as part of your subscription, you must redirect the domain to DNS addresses: ns2.dcsaas.com ns1.dcsaas.com or redirect the MX record and addresses the TXT record: v = spf1 mx a: ps01.dcsaas.net IP4: 188.8.131.52 ~ all
If you have changed the configuration of the domain (DNS or MX) servers Zencommerce (zencommerce.in) must re-create your mail account. In the case of subscription services email accounts you create in admin panel, tab Configuration> Web Hosting> Email Accounts. Please provide the account prefix, eg. Office, a shop or a different name and set a password and confirm. In the case of web hosting service, log on to the web host panel and go to the Mail Accounts, then select Options Create an email account and enter the account prefix, eg. Office, a shop or a different name and set a password and confirm.
Our store does not appear every time (only for some clients is available)
If there is a problem with the service, check the DNS configuration. DNS field can not contain duplicate entries, for example, if the domain is redirected to the DNS server addresses Zencommerce (zencommerce.in) in the configuration should be only two addresses: ns2.dcsaas.com ns1.dcsaas.com problem may also occur in If the A record for the domain assigned or sub-domain.To avoid this situation, make sure that the configuration domain or sub-domain is assigned to only one record of the IP address. All records that do not point to the correct IP address to be removed. (Discharge)
Page not visible at the site. or without www.
If you make configuration changes to the record of the domain or sub-domain, in the case of some of the servers is a requirement to add two domain records. Example domain zencommerce.in 1 zencommerce.in record the IP address of record www.zencommerce 2 IP address
