Domain Manager

(See also: Domain Name Registration)

The Domain Manager provides the tools necessary to manage your registered Domain Names. The following options are provided when clicking a domain name:

Owner/Admin/Billing/Tech Contact
WHOIS Contact Information for all associated domain contacts.
Editing any individual contact provides the option to apply changes to all contact groups.
Name Servers
Change Name Server settings to direct DNS lookups for your domain name.
Default Name Servers for new registrations are ns1.lamphost.net and ns1.lamphost.net
Domain Locking
Enable domain locking to prevent any changes to your domain's WHOIS contacts, domain name transfers to other registrar's, etc.
Auth Code
When transferring your domain to another registrar, you may be asked for your Domain Auth Code. Use this tool to find or update your Auth Code.
WHOIS Privacy
Enabling WHOIS Privacy masks your domain contact information when someone performs a look-up on your domain.
Email addresses are forwarded from their masked versions to your actual domain contact address.
example: Contact 'captain@example.com' enables WHOIS Privacy for example.com. A WHOIS look-up on example.com returns only example.com@contactprivacy.com.
