Domain Bought. What next?

Post by afristralian » Fri Sep 26, 2008 1:54 pm

Hey guys,

I bought a .com.au domain via exetel yesterday. After buying it I was hoping to get a management interface somewhere so that i can setup the dns records etc, but i cannot locate anything like that anywhere?

I have emailed hosting@exetel and they told me that i need to submit my requests to them via email? a Bit strange? I mean, if i want to hook up my mail server, i will need to make advanced changes on the domain wont i?

I also received another email saying that there is another service which i need to buy for $20 p/year?

I am lost ... i run 3 other domains (all .com) with another registrar and I've never had to struggle to get this set up?

Any help is appreciated.

Domain name registration and Domain name hosting services are two services.

please pm me the domain you registered, I'll check it for you.

HI,
I HAVE A REGISTERED DOMAIN NAME AND EXETEL IS HOSTING IT. WHO DO I CONTACT FOR THE CREATION OF (A) RESOURCE RECORDS THAT POINTS TO MY IP ADDRESS ? OR HOW DO I GET IT DONE?
THANKS.

Probably email hosting@exetel.com.au with your details and the request.
