 How do I register or transfer a domain name?

There are several ways you can get a domain name (Web address) for your account. Domain names are managed by organizations called "registrars." Metanet can submit a domain name registration request, or a transfer request for you, or you can register/transfer a domain name yourself.

 Can Metanet Register a domain for me?

To have Metanet submit a New Domain Name Registration Request for You: When you request that we submit your domain name registration for you (during the setup of your account), we submit your domain name registration to Enom, Inc or Network Solutions if you choose. We use the contact information you give us at the time of setup as the registrant (legal owner), administrator, and billing contact(s). Though we submit this request for you, Metanet is NOT RESPONSIBLE for the domain's processing fees. Enom Inc. charges a $19 fee annually and Network Solutions charges a $35 fee annually. Your billing contact will receive an e-mail from Enom Inc. instructing them on how to remit payment for the domain name. Domain names not paid within 30 days are placed on hold by Enom Inc. or NetSol. Metanet is not responsible for domain names that are already registered by other organizations or registered incorrectly. We also do not perform registrations with any registrar 's other than Network Solutions or Enom Inc.
For Enom, we will set up a username and login and provide this login to you, so that we may manage your domain registration. You will be able to access your domain at www.enomcentral.com

 Can Metanet Transfer a domain for me?

To have Metanet submit a Domain Name Transfer Request for You: When you ask us to submit a transfer request to your registrar for you, Network Solutions sends an e-mail to your current administrative and technical contacts to confirm your domain name transfer.* (To check the current contacts of your domain name, you can go to http://www.internic.net/whois.html.) At least one of these contacts must confirm the request for it to be completed. The process can take between 5 - 7 business days provided the contact and e-mail information is current. Important Note: If your domain's contact information is no longer valid, the owner of the domain must send a fax, on company letterhead, to Metanet. The letter must indicate the Owner 's authorization for Metanet to host the domain name. Please make sure to include the owner's signature. If the fax does not include all of this information, we will not be able to process the transfer. All faxes should be directed to METANET HOSTMASTER. Our fax number is 1-212-202-5424 * If your domain is being transferred from Worldnic or if you registered a domain name with Register.com after June 1, 1999, we need you to provide a user login/account number and password for us to transfer your account. You can e-mail this information to support@metanethosting.com. For Enom, we will set up a username and login and provide this login to you, so that we may manage your domain Transfer. You will be able to access your domain at www.enomcentral.com

 How do I Register or Transfer a Domain myself?

You can register or transfer a domain name with a desired registrar yourself. To successfully allow the registrar to point your domain name to our Web servers, your registrar requires information about our domain name servers (DNS).

Our DNS information is below:

Primary HostName: ns1.metanethosting.com
Primary IP: 216.150.11.173
Second HostName: ns2.metanethosting.com
Secondary IP : 216.150.26.239

To register a new domain with Network Solutions or Enom yourself, you can go to http://www.networksolutions.com/ or http://enom.com. To receive domains from Enom at our discounted $19 rate, please ask us to create a wholesale account for you at http://enomcentral.com. To see the availability of a particular domain name you can go to http://www.internic.net/whois.html or use the domain availability tool at the domain registrar's site. Once your domain has been successfully registered, it takes 24-72 hours for it to be propagated throughout the Internet. (To check if the domain name is pointing to our servers, you can go to http://www.internic.net/whois.html.)

 When will my web site be available after it has been Registered or Transferred?

Until you have an actively registered or completed domain transfer, you can use the IP address provided in your account information sheet to upload and view your Web site (see "General Account Information," above). Once your domain name is processed, and is pointing to our nameservers, you will be able to access your site via your domain name. Please note that e-mailboxes related to your domain name will not work until the domain name is correctly processed and pointing to our name servers. The Internet will also take up to 72 hours to propagate this information to everyone in the world. If you have any further questions about your domain, you can e-mail our Support Group at support@metanethosting.com. You are strongly encouraged to upload your site content to our servers before performing any domain transfer so that your web site transfer will appear seamless otherwise you are at risk for a transitional outage.

AT ALL TIMES PLEASE MAKE SURE ANY TROUBLE TICKET REQUESTS OR REQUESTS TO SUPPORT@METANETHOSTING.COM INCLUDE YOUR REGISTRATION NUMBER IN THE SUBJECT LINE OF YOUR EMAIL.
