Hosting FAQ

What is a subdomain?
A subdomain is commonly used for dividing the site into different sections or categories.  An example would be a service department, they may use the following subdomains:

  • interactive.domainname.com
  • advertising.domainname.com
  • printing.domainname.com
How many domains can I own?
We suggest that you own no more than 4-5 domains for any single site.  The secondary domains can point to your original site.  These domains would be used for domains that could be spelled a couple of ways (ex. neminnesota.com and northeastminnesota.com).You can own as many domains as you would like, as long as they are not already taken.
How do I register a domain?
To register your own domain:

  1. Make sure it is available via a whois record.
  2. Create an account at a registrars website (ex. directnic, godaddy, Network Solutions)
  3. Enter your information for the domain, your contact info, and pay for the domain through the registrars website.
What are the DNS Settings?
DNS stands for Domain Name Servers and acts very much like a phone book.  When you type in a website the DNS transfers from the human readable word into an IP address that the computer understands which allows it to display the appropriate information for that site.The DNS settings that will be used when hosted through W. A. Fisher Interactive will be:
NS.LIQUIDWEB.COM
NS2.LIQUIDWEB.COM
