With Runbox Domain Hosting you can register a brand new domain name and configure it for Web Hosting
and Email Hosting
. For instance, you can register yourname.com
(if it's available) and set it up to host a web site and your personal or business email.
With Runbox Domain Hosting, Web Hosting, and Email Hosting, you have full control over your online presence and messaging.
Register a new domain
To get started, open the Domain Hosting Administration
screen and enter the domain name you wish to register.
If you don't have any domain credits yet, please click the link to purchase one or more domain credits. Currently, one credit equals one domain name registered for one year.
Manage a domain
Open the Domain Hosting Administration
screen and click the domain whose records you want to change. The "Manage DNS" screen will be displayed, where you can edit, add, and delete records for the domain.
If you host your web site with Runbox, you only need to set the NS record
. Otherwise you most likely need to set the A record
and MX record
for web and email hosting.
Remember to click [Save settings] when you're done.
Used to map a domain name to the IP address of a host. Example: 220.127.116.11.
The same as A record
but with IPv6 support.
Short for "Canonical Name", and is an alias for another domain name. For example, ftp.domain.com can be a CNAME for www.domain.com.
Stands for "Mail eXchanger" and is the address of the host responsible for the domain's email.
If you only host your email with Runbox, enter mx.runbox.com
Short for "Name Server" and refers to the host that handles all DNS records, if this is delegated elsewhere.
If you host your web site with Runbox, enter ns1.runbox.net
here, in two separate NS record entries. The rest will be taken care of by your Web Hosting
Generalized service location record, used for newer protocols instead of creating protocol-specific records such as MX.
