Domain Center

Technical features of our Domain Center

Domain Registration

From the Domain Center interface you can both register new domain names, and transfer your domains from another provider.
In both cases the domain extensions available to choose from are .com .net .org .info .biz .name .cloud and the service validity period is one year.
For registrations of new domain names you need to provide details of the domain owner in order to complete the purchase. For transfers, besides providing details of the owner, you need to unlock your domain with your current provider and get the AuthCode which you will need to complete the Domain Center transfer process successfully.
After completing the purchase or transfer, for each domain you can change, add or delete the authoritative DNS as and when you like through the Domain Center..
Through the Domain Center you can protect all your domains, new or transferred, from unauthorized transfers using the simple Lock and Unlock feature, or activate additional services like the "Auto-renewal" and "Whois Privacy" service.

Auto-renewal

This additional service allows you to renew the service automatically for another year upon expiration of the domain. This ensures greater security and continuity of the service. If you no longer wish to renew the domain you can simply disable the auto-renewal service, at any time: upon expiration, the domain will not be renewed.

Whois Privacy

Whois Privacy is the additional service that offers privacy and protection of domain registration details. This service hides the information of the domain owner which would otherwise be displayed to anyone performing a Whois search.

DNS Management

For all the domains managed through the Domain Center it’s possible to enable DNS Management: this offers maximum control of the domain and allows you to route all types of requests and traffic.
From the Domain Center DNS management interface you can edit any type of DNS record, adding, deleting or changing their content. Through the management console you can also import and/or export all the management parameters and records in a text file: this makes saving and restoring certain configurations easier.
The DNS management interface is integrated with all Arubacloud.com products allowing you to identify your IP addresses and your Cloud Servers easily within your Cloud Computing infrastructure. In the DNS records however, it’s possible to enter IP addresses towards other external infrastructures.
The DNS records which you can manage are:

  •  SOA Records - returns authoritative information on the DNS zone, including the main DNS server, the admin emails, the serial number of the domain and various timers that regulate the transfer frequency and the duration of validity of the records.
  •  NS Records - all the SOA, A, AAAA, MX, TXT domain Record parameters are saved on the authoritative NS which the domain has with its competent Authority : any request made to a host of the domain will be addressed to the server which such NS, set as authoritative, indicate as the server configured for such purpose.
  •  A Records - allows you to indicate towards which server (identified with an IPv4 address) you wish to forward the requests for a given host. It is possible to enter all the records that you need.
  •   AAAA Records - allows you to indicate towards which server (identified with an IPv6 address) you wish to forward the requests for a given host. It is possible to enter all the records that you need.
  •  MX Records - allow you to specify which are the Servers that manage the emails of the domain. It is possible to enter multiple records specifying a priority number for each one.
  •  CNAME Records - these records are better known as "Aliases", they represent "alternative" names to existing Records (A or AAAA or CNAME).
  •  TXT Records - allow you to associate a description to the domain or domain host.
  •  SRV Records - are used to identify which is the server, port and type of protocol for using a specific service.
  •  SPF Records - allow you to indicate which are the hosts authorized to send emails for the domain.
