Your domain has a hosting service that stores the domain's DNS records, including its MX records, CNAME and TXT records, NS records, and more.
To point your domain name to the myVetOnline Servers you will need to add or modify a CName record for your Domain.
You make these changes with your domain host, not with myVetOnline. If you're not sure who your domain host is, there are a few ways to find out.
Try finding your domain host by looking up its name servers. Here are a few free tools that can help you out.
Search the whois database (pronounced who-is)
- Go to whois free for a company that performs free queries of the whois database.
- Type your domain name in the field and submit your query.
Results list your domain's registrar and at least two name servers. Here are partial results for the sample domain theurbanexperience.org:
- Domain Name: myclinicdomain.org
- Registrar: Everydns.net
- Name Server:ns4.everydns.net
- Name Server:ns1.everydns.net
Interpret the results
In many cases, the Registrar (reported in the whois results) is also your domain host. Sometimes, however, another "go-between" company is hosting your domain's DNS servers. To make sure either way, check out the name servers. Sometimes the servers themselves reveal the name of your host. The name servers in the results above, for example, show that EveryDNS is the domain host for myclinicdomain.org:
If your name servers don't name a specific company but are more obscure (as in asadns1.name-services.com), you can often find the name of your host by performing a search at Google.com for the server name. Search results will likely mention the company who owns that server.
