Domain - Frequently asked Questions

What is a DNS zone?

The DNS zone is the roadmap of the domain name.
It contains all the required information to operate the domain on the Internet.

For example, A records will indicate where to find the website.

MX records will indicate where emails should be sent.


How much does a domain name cost?

This depends on the extension and the registrar. Online.net offers one of the most competitive pricing on the market. You can find all domain prices at: http://www.online.net/en/domain


How can I renew my domain name?

Directly from your management console. Click on “Order > Renew”


Is it possible to order a domain without web hosting?

Sure, but in this case you will have neither a website or an email account associated to it..


How can I transfer my domain name to Online.net?

You need to have the AuthCode for your domain and order the transfer on the web site of Online.net.

Don't hesitate to read the related documentation.
