This section will give you a general overview on the Domain Name Service.
If your domain is already delegated to Konecta's DNS servers, go to the
Domain Page to complete the server
side setup. If not please follow the instructions below on how to transfer
your domain to Konecta.
What is DNS?
DNS (Domain Name Service) is the means by which you are able to type in an
easily remembered name in order to go to the internet address (URL) that you
wish, instead of trying to remember an IP (Internet Protocol) address (which is
a number). The DNS "resolves" the name to a number then homes in on the site.
Does it cost extra to host a domain name with Konecta ?
No, you have 2 choices:
My domain is registered. How do I map it my new Konecta account ?
You can use the subdomain given to you when you join as your own domain. For
- You can have your own Domain Name hosted for example: www.yourdomain.com
If you registered your domain outside of Konecta you need to go to your DNS Authorities website and have the domain transferred
from the existing host to Konecta using the following DNS's.
Primary Server Hostname....:
Primary Server Netaddress..: 126.96.36.199
Secondary Server Hostname..:
Secondary Server Netaddress: 188.8.131.52
Once the domain is transferred to Konecta's DNS servers, go to the
Map Domain Page
to complete the setup of
your domain. To check on the status of your transfer, use the tracking number
and instructions that you received in the mail from the DNS Authority. If you did not
receive this message or have lost the number, you can go to your DNS providers
web site and type your domain name into the box. This
will let you see your host record. Konecta will NOT complete the server side
setup of your domain until the host record shows that the DNS is set up for:
ns1.giga-sj-001.net : 184.108.40.206
Does Konecta host anything other than the top level domains?
ns2.giga-sj-001.net : 220.127.116.11
Yes. Any domain currently available on the internet can be hosted with Konecta.
How do I host a non US based domain?
Some domain name service authorities will not allow the registration/application
of the domain name before the server side setup of the domain is completed in this case you should
before the delegation request.
