How do I find out Mail server of Website

Open a DOS Command Prompt
 Type  Nslookup  -type=mx

"set type=mx" - This will cause NSLOOKUP to only return what are known as MX (Mail eXchange) records from the DNS servers. 

How to Hide Website Details in Who is Record (Domain Privacy Protection)

What is Domain Privacy Protection
Domain privacy services help by hiding your information from this WHOIS database and substituting the contact information for say your web host.
Domain privacy is a service offered by a number of domain name registrars. A user buys privacy from the company, who in turn replaces the user's info in the WHOIS with the info of a forwarding service.
A domain privacy feature is like a firewall in computer network – it simply shields your info from the public but your data is still kept in registrar’s database.

  1. First Log in in Your Domain Panel
  2.  Find the Privacy Protection Option
  3.  Enable Privacy Protection 

The Total Number of Web Domains

List of Top Level Domain

.aeroair-transport industryMust verify eligibility for registration; only those in various categories of air-travel-related entities may register.
.asiaAsia-Pacific regionThis is a TLD for companies, organizations, and individuals based in the region of Asia, Australia, and the Pacific.
.bizbusinessThis is an open TLD; any person or entity is permitted to register; however, registrations may be challenged later if they are not held by commercial entities in accordance with the domain’s charter. This TLD was created to provide relief for the wildly-popular .com TLD.
.catCatalanThis is a TLD for Web sites in the Catalan language or related to Catalan culture.
.comcommercialThis is an open TLD; any person or entity is permitted to register. Though originally intended for for-profit business entities, for a number of reasons it became the “main” TLD for domain names and is currently used by all types of entities including nonprofits, schools and private individuals. Domain name registrations may be challenged if the holder cannot prove an outside relation justifying reservation of the name, to prevent “squatting”.
.coopcooperativesThe .coop TLD is limited to cooperatives as defined by the Rochdale Principles.
.edueducationalThe .edu TLD is limited to specific educational institutions such as, but not limited to, primary schools, middle schools, secondary schools, colleges, and universities. In the US, its usability was limited in 2001 to post-secondary institutions accredited by an agency on the list of nationally recognized accrediting agencies maintained by the United States Department of Education. This domain is therefore almost exclusively used by U.S. colleges and universities. Some institutions that do not meet the current registration criteria havegrandfathered domain names.
.govgovernmentalThe .gov TLD is limited to U.S. governmental entities and agencies.
.infoinformationThis is an open TLD; any person or entity is permitted to register.
.intinternational organizationsThe .int TLD is strictly limited to organizations, offices, and programs which are endorsed by a treaty between two or more nations.
.jobscompaniesThe .jobs TLD is designed to be added after the names of established companies with jobs to advertise. At this time, owners of a “” domain are not permitted to post jobs of third party employers.

Domain Life Cycle

Registration(1-10 years)
A domain name can be registered for a span of 1 year to 10 years time in one go. Whereas a domain with .in tld can be registered for a maximum of one years at a time. As the domain approaches the date of expiry, renewal notices would start to flood into your registered email inbox. Users can either renew it manually or set an auto renew.
ExpirationGrace Period
(1-45 Days)

This is the date when the registration period is over. Many individuals have a mis-conception that a domain would become available after that date, which definitely isn’t the fact. Once the domain reaches the expiration stage, there are few other stages before it can be re-registered.
Upon expiration, the site that used to be running this long would be deactivated. Though the webmaster can still renew it without the need to paying any extra charges other than the normal renewal charges. The domain would still stay there in your domain control panel. This stage of the domain life cycle is termed as the grace period which would usually be anywhere in between 1 to 45 days. This period might vary between registrars.

(up to 30 days)
Next comes the redemption stage ie. when a domain isn’t renewed by the owner during the grace period, it enters into redemption. Though, the webmaster who owns the domain can still back-order it, but at a much higher price.
A domain resides in the Redemption for 30 days before moving onto the next stage. During this stage, the registrars have the right to auction it and handover the domain to any new individual if there aren’t any claims done by you. Many individuals are usually interested and on a look-out for such domains due to certain related factors. The precise span of the redemption period and corresponding charges, varies depending on the registrar.

Pending Delete
At this stage, there isn’t any possibility for you to renew it. The registrar sends a command to the Registry for deleting the domain, the domain now enters the last phase of the life-cycle called Pending Delete command. The domain stays in this stage for 5 days. But, if you still wish to have it back, you can try and place a reorder request. Here, what the registrar would do is, they will try to re-register it for you, as and when the domain is made available to the public. There are no fixed costs for back-ordering a domain nor can anybody guarantee you about it.
Available to All
As it suggests, the domain becomes available to all and there isn’t any control of anyone. If you intend to have it back, you must keep a track and register it as soon as it is made available.

What is XXX Domain

.xxx is a sponsored top-level domain (sTLD) intended as a voluntary option for pornographic sites on the Internet. The ICANN Board voted to approve the sTLD on 18 March 2011. It went into operation on April 15 2011.
The registry is operated by ICM. The sponsoring organization is the International Foundation for Online Responsibility (IFFOR). 

Drop Catcher

drop catcher is a domain name registrar who offers the service of attempting to quickly register a given domain name for a customer if that name becomes available—that is, to "catch" a "dropped" name—when the domain name's registration expires, either because the registrant does not want the domain anymore or because the registrant did not renew the registration on time

How The Domain Name ExpirationProcess Works

It can be somewhat confusing at first when trying to figure out how a the process works for grabbing an expired domain name because most people do not realize when it is that a domain name actually becomes available to register.

Almost every one understands that when you register a domain you register the domain in annual increments and pay usually around $10/year. What many people do not realize is that if someone chooses not to renew their domain name then the domain name does not become available the instant that the clock strikes midnight on day 365 if the registrant registered the domain name for only 1 year.

What actually happens is that for the first 40 days after the domain name owner chooses not to renew the domain name then the domain name is set to “expired” status by the registrar. During this 40 day grace period all services to the domain name are shut off but the domain name owner still has the option to renew the domain name for the standard renewal rate charged by the registrar. Just because a domain name enters this grace period it does not necessarily mean that the domain name owner will choose not to renew the domain name (it’s definitely a positive sign because chances are they will not but of course they may just be putting it off or simply waiting for the funds to pay for the renewal).

After the 40 day grace period is up then the status of the domain changes to “redemption period”. The redemption period lasts about 30 days. The domain name owner can still renew their domain name during the redemption period buy they must pay an additional fee to bring the domain out of this redemption status. The fee is currently somewhere in the neighborhood of $100 – not an insubstantial sum. Unless the domain name owners is just flat out not paying attention then there is a very high likelihood that the domain name owner will actually let the domain name lapse once a domain name reaches the redemption period. During this redemption period the WhoIs data will also start to disappear as well.

After the 30 day redemption period is up then the status of the domain changes to “locked”. This locked period lasts 5 days. As soon as the 5 days is up then the domain name is deleted from the ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) database and officially be ready to be registered by anybody. It is important to note that once a domain name reaches this 5 day lock period then the domain name owner has lost all rights to the domain name and does not have a priority in trying to renew the domain name – they must try to register the domain name as soon as it becomes available just like everyone else. Our domains dropping soon finder tool will allow you to search thousands of domains that are in this 5 day lock period and our dropped domain finder will allow you to view domains that have just left their 5 day lock period and are available to register.

What is an add-on domain

What is an add-on domain?
An add-on domain is a new domain that is added on top of your main domain. It creates a sub directory within your main web hosting directory but can show a different website. The add-on domain collects the information from the sub domain directory using the same space and bandwidth as your main account, however it won’t have its own cpanel
(web hosting manager).
Add-on domain benefits
1. Create multiple domains/websites on the same web hosting account.
2. Save money and web space by using one hosting account instead of several hosting accounts.
3. The add-on domain shares all the same resources (disk space, bandwidth…) with your main site.
4. The add-on domain has its own FTP manager, site stats, cgi-bin which is created automatically.
5. Upload all pages, images, scripts, forums etc to your add-on domain directory.
6. Access your add-on domain using several web site addresses
7. Promote several web sites within one hosting account with their own set of keywords.

MX Records

A mail exchange (MX) record identifies a server that handles email messages for your domain. A domain has one or more MX records listed in priorty order. When someone sends an email message to your domain, the sender's mail server delivers it to the first available server in the priority list. You create new MX records, or change their priority.

To create MX records for a domain:

  1. Log in to the Cpanel for your domain.
  2. Locate the page from which you can update the domain MX records. 
    You may need to enable advanced settings.

  1. Add an MX record for the email server. 
    Enter the fully qualified server name, such as ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM. Many domain providers also require a trailing period at the end of the server name.
    Set the priority for the record.

  1. MX records with a lower number have higher priority than MX records with a higher number. Different domain hosts use different priority numbering systems. Regardless of the system, the important fact is the relative priorities of MX records.
  2. To add MX records for additional servers, repeat steps 3 through 5 for those servers.
    Give backup servers a lower priority than the primary email server.
  3. Delete any existing MX records, or lower their priority.
    If you plan to continue routing mail to your legacy email server, retain the existing MX records with a lower priority.
  4. Save your changes. 
    Keep in mind that changes to MX records may take up to 48 hours to propagate throughout the Internet.

DNS hijacking

DNS hijacking or DNS redirection is the practice of redirecting the resolution of Domain Name System (DNS) names to rogue DNS servers, particularly for the practice of phishing, or to direct users’ HTTP traffic to the ISP’s own webservers where advertisements are served
