Newbie question


I'm really new at this. I took some classes and paid for a domain on Yahoo so I can learn from the book. I have a domain on Yahoo Small business and I'm paying the $30 sumpin dollars. Lets say it is called TyroneBak.com. Now, I want to setup a temporary domain, too. So, I will have TyroneBak.com and TyroneBak2.com.

Is this possible?

Will yahoo allow me to setup another domain alone with my domain?

Sounds like you are wanting multiple domains to go to your one site. You will need to change the DNS records to do so.
I believe I found an article for DNS records of Yahoo hosting accounts.
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/sma...ceddns-01.html

Though, basically you are wanting to create an (A) record with your DNS servers.
In order for your domain to resolve to your web server you will need to create an Address (A) Record for your domain. You will be creating two records. One so yourdomain.com will resolve to your web server and another for www.yourdomain.com.

If you are hosting with a provider (If you have a website), you can contact your provider for more information on changing the DNS records.
I hope this is on-topic, and able to assist you.

Hello,

Also, you can register a second domain and point it to your website, if this is what you're attempting to do. In fact, you can point as many domains as you chose to your website.

I hope this helps.


Kindest regards,
Pete

I don't really understand what you mean by temporary domains. But I think you might setup your sub-domains like xxx.TyroneBak.com but not TyroneBakxxx.com by yourself.

can you elaborate what you mean by "temporary" domain? First of all, registrations are final and you can't register domain for a couple of days. Also - may it be a subdomain that you mean by "TyroneBak2.com"? like one.TyroneBak.com? those guys can be temporary

If you mean another domain pointing to your website then you received an answer from Machen - Limestone

You can have whatever you registered and paid.

If you mean it on mutiple domains.Machen - Limestone has told you about it.

Maybe Yahoo isn't be best place to start learning from ??

Personally I would register a domain through NameCheap.com and pay $8 for the year. I'm sure if you look in the web hosting offers section you will find a host willing to offer you 100mb starter space for a few dollars a year. From this you will learn how to register a domain and point it to hosting space.

Say you register domain.com and domain2.com. If you want domain2.com to point to the same domain.com site, this is called a parked domain. If you want domain2.com to be a completely different website, then this is called an addon domain.

Good luck.

Keep in mind I am new at this. I apologize for the late response. --Holiday and sinuses..etc. What I mean by temporary domain is like i want to setup a NBA_ALLStar weekend site for parties..etc. I just want a site up 'til Feb 15?.. Right! It will only be up for 3 months. I wanted to call it NBA_ALLSTAR_Dallas.com with Paypal. I already have the Tyrone_bak.com with yahoo. My question is "Is it possible to create NBA_ALLSTAR_Dallas.com with yahoo under my existing paid service?"

I'm open to suggestion for other places like GoDaddy. Especially, if it is free with PayPal, FTP, and other neat tools that make building Ecommerce sites easy and cheap.

Answer in response to $30.00: It's $30 every 3 months(i think)

I'm pretty sure that all registrations for domains are sold in 1yr increments only, none of this monthly thing.

What do you want to put on this domain? It sounds like a subdomain (xxx.Tyronebak.com) would be an easier choice.
