Getting your web site set up at Arlin.net is easy! Just fill out a simple sign-up form and arrange payment, and we handle all the technical issues of initially setting up your server disk space and registering your domain name for you. To view your site or to upload your web page files yourself, by File Transfer Protocol (FTP) or with MS. FrontPage Extensions, you will need access to the WWW. You are responsible for set up and maintenance of your own computer equipment and your Internet access through an Internet Service Provider (ISP). You can use a local provider or a national online service (such as AOL, Compuserve, etc.).
A domain name is an Internet name that you purchase and own each year. Each domain name is individual and one-of-a-kind. There can be no duplicate domain names because your domain name is used as your Internet address (URL). It is associated to a numerical address, called an IP address (e.g. 188.8.131.52;21). A domain name server translates the domain name into it's IP address to bring up each web page. Domain names contain two parts, the actual name, and the hierarchy extension to which it belongs (e.g. .com, .net, and .org. and newer one's such as .cc, .to). You will want your own domain name if you are promoting your own business on the Net, and if you want to choose an Internet address name that will be easy to remember and associated to your business name.
When you sign up to have your existing domain hosted by us, we can put in the transfer request to InterNIC for you. If you prefer to do this yourself, specify you are transferring your existing domain and NOT requesting a new domain. Keep your old host active until InterNIC completes the transfer process. We provide you with a temporary IP address so you can upload your site to our server and access your site. E-mail and web pages can continue to be accessed from your old site. When InterNIC activates the transfer, visitors can access either site during the 72 hour propagation period, after which you must have the old host delete your old domain location from their records and update their DNS record. If your old host also provides your Internet access, they must update their DNS before you can access your domain site. InterNIC requires e-mail authorization from either the Administrative or Technical Contact for the old domain location before they will validate the transfer request.
