    registering a domain

    I am thinking about registering a domain name.

    Particularly, I am wanting to register: www.crimsonblaze.net

    I have some questions, however.

    1. Is www.aplus.net a good place to register a domain name? At aplus.net I can register my domain name for 2 years for $14 or for 3 years for about $21. (I want to either do a 2 year or 3 year registration right now).

    2. I have about 150 MB of server space on the BYU server. I already have a website which I make use of quite a lot sitting on that server space. As of right now I am using about 58 MB of that server space. How can I utilize a part of it towards this new website if I register the domain name? I saw something about parking and forwarding domains on aplus.net, not sure exactly what that would do for me.

    And of course any other info would be appreciated.

    The price doesn't sound bad. Make sure that they are putting YOU down as the domain owner and registrant. Some companies put themselves down and it can become a major pain in the arse if they do so.

    After you register a domain you have to tell it what nameservers to use. The nameservers are what specifies the IP address and location of the domain, zones, subdomains, etc.

    As I understand it, parking a domain is just reserving it and not doing anything. Forwarding domains just send the user to a different URL.

    They are affordable, fast, and offer awsome support for their domains. I love godaddy and wont use any other in the future.
