Mapping, Registration, Transfer & More

Substituting a registered domain name for the path to your WordPress site on NoSpin WordPress (domain mapping) enables visitors to reach your WordPress site by entering your domain name in their brower’s URL window.

Registering or transferring a domain name in the NoSpin Web Client Portal entitles you to free domain mapping on your NoSpin WordPress site. Simply enter your NoSpin WordPress site address in the Map To WordPress Site text box during domain name registration or transfer and we shall set up domain mapping on your NoSpin WordPress site free of charge. NoSpin Web uses the eNom Registrar to register domain names and after registration you will have full access to your domain name data in the Client Portal. We recommend purchasing at least two simliar domain names if you are serious about growing your free fledgling NoSpin WordPress ssite into an Ecommerce Marketplace.

Domain Names and SSL Certificates

Just minutes after domain mapping processes, our system registers a free SSL certificate to your domain name, verified by cPanel. Without an SSL certificated properly registered to your domain name, the https included in your site’s url will create a warning in your visitors’ browser windows. Though your free SSL certificate is scheduled to expire 3 months after it has been issued, certificates normally reissue before they expire. However, there is a limit to the number of free certificates cPanel shall issue per license and we cannot guarantee your certificate shall renew. For more infomation, please submit an SSL Certificate support ticket after creating a Client Portal account. When an SSL Certificate support ticket is submitted with a domain name inserted in the Domain Name field, we look up the renew status of your SSL certificate and report it to you in our reply.

In the unlikely event your cPanel certificate is not renewed, you may purchase an annual certificate from the NoSpin Web Client Portal. We recommend the economical and quickly provisioned GeoTrust Rapid SSL.

Domain Names Registered Elsewhere

The charge for mapping domain names not registered or transfered in the NoSpin Web Client Portal is $20.00-US. Ordering is available on the Client Portal Domain Mapping page. Let’s assume for a moment, a host other than NoSpin Web registered your domain name and you are not quite ready to transfer it to us. In order to map your domain name to your NoSpin WordPress site address, there is some elementary DNS zone file configuring involved. However, in the event you need help, when you create a Domain Mapping support ticket, we shall walk you through the process until your mapping works flawlessly. The process in a nutshell is, you create a DNS A record (address record) in your domain’s DNS zone file that points your domain name to the IP address of NoSpin WordPress. If you are intimidated by the sound of this process, do not despair. It is simply a matter of logging into your domain’s control panel and changing the data field of your domain name’s A record to 23.111.140.202; i.e, the dedicated IP address of NoSpin WordPress. For the sake of example, we have provided links to instructions for changing A records at GoDaddy and Network Solutions. Other domain Registrars, such as eNom, use similar interfaces for configuring DNS zone files.

Please allow up to 24 hours for DNS propagation when editing domain zone files.

Domain Registrations and Transfers

Given sufficient effort, you’ll probably be able to find a less expensive resource on the Web to register a brand new domain name; however, using NoSpin Web Hosting for your domain name registration and renewal will pay off in the long run. With respect to price alone, silly promotions that leave you wondering how much your renewal will cost in a year or two are not part of our business plan. We shall continue to offer the same competitive price structure year after year until we are notified by the Registries of a cost increase that shall affect all vendors… including Godaddy.

We’ll talk more about first time registrations in the future; however, we’d like to mention what is required to ensure a smooth domain name transfer to NoSpin Web. When you have made the decision to transfer your domain name to us, login to the control panel of your current domain name host, retrieve your domain name’s EPP Code (Transfer Authenticaion Code) and save it to a text file for later use in the Client Portal. While you are logged in, switch the Domain Lock from On to Off, disable Private Registration (Privacy) so you can authorize the transfer via Email, save your settings, logout and proceed to the Client Portal.

The following screen captures were taken after logging into the Client Portal, selecting Order New Service and Domain Names from the Select Package Type menu. In the Domain Transfer text box, enter the domain name you want transfered to NoSpin Web Hosting and press the Search Domain button to verify the transfer is ready to proceed (left hand screen capture). Enter the EPP code (Transfer Authoriztion Code) where indicated in the right hand screen capture and be sure to verify the three conditions of transfer are met. Optionally, select Domain ID Protection and if you are transfering your domain name for mapping to your NoSpin WordPress site, select the Set It Up radio button. Press the Continue button to  renew your registration for an addional year beyond its current expiration date. Please be sure to monitor your inbox in order to authorize the transfer.
