Sometimes when we register our domain names, we do some transformations on it, maybe on the

Domain Name System information or even to the registered domain name hosting. Such case is so common

for many people, and in fact, many experts have recommended that we really do some changes on the

registered domain names.

Well, for that matter, I will be dealing mainly about how to change the registered Domain Name System

information and some facts that go behind such transformations. It is just important to note some things

about it since it is a common necessity for the domain name holders to change their registered domain

name information.


According to some experts, when you register a domain name, you really need to specify your

Domain Name Server or DNS information. However, there are some instances that you need to change such

registered DNS information for certain purposes. Speaking of those purposes, one is noted that if you have

a new web site or even an email account, your web hosting or the Internet Service Provider will ask you to

change your registered Domain Name Server information in order to make your registered domain name to be

connected to your web site and so your email account can be setup.

In changing registered Domain Name Server information for your registered domain name,

you should note that in the first place the registered Domain Name Server information is provided by

your host. Generally, such information is composed of a primary and a secondary name server.

It is important to know then that you have both the primary and secondary name servers.


Giving much emphasis on the secondary name server, it is noted that the explanation for a secondary name

server is not that it takes its information from the primary name server; instead it is its respective

distinct Internet Protocol or IP address that do the process. As such, the primary and the secondary name

server function to point the domain name that resolves to the Internet Protocol created by the host server.

Therefore in changing registered Domain Name Server information, the domain name will resolve with the

average of 50 percent of the period to the primary name server and also 50 percent of the period to the

secondary name server.

There are further resources which state that if ever that you have an Internet Protocol address of

your hosting server, it is better that in changing your registered domain name, you use the URL-forwarding

service which is now offered by most domain name companies. Through the URL-forwarding, the registered

domain name information then can be change smoothly for the reason that the URL-forwarding will resolve

any hits on the registered domain name to the forwarding servers.


Today, there are so many companies that provide you to the opportunity to change you registered

domain name, and some of those even offer the registered domain name change for free.

So now that you have a new registered domain name, you have the opportunity to build a web site

for whatever purposes, whether it is for corporate or personal use. And aside from that, you have also

the chance to do some email forwarding and you can even resell you registered domain name to whomever

you like.
