Every domain name is linked to an address on the Internet called an IP Address, which is a long string of numbers. Domain names make it easier for Internet users to visit websites without having to remember this numerical address. When you visit techevolution.com, your browser and computer read our site’s DNS records in order to locate our website’s files which are stored on a server. This almost instantaneous directing process allows your browser to access and load websites. Like Techevolution, most hosting providers automatically assign DNS records upon domain name registration. In some cases, you may wish to keep your registered domain with one company, but have your website’s files and email accounts stored on a different hosting server. This is called a DNS transfer, and can be arranged within a couple of days. You may wish to alter your DNS records if your domain registration was completed with an expensive hosting company. In this case, you can keep your registered domain but switch to a more affordable hosting provider such as Techevolution.

We make it easy for you to move your domains to Techevolution Hosting, so you can start enjoying the benefits of our affordable hosting services right away. We understand that you don’t want to lose your unique domain name or the hard work you’ve already put into your website — that’s why we make every domain name registration or transfer hassle free. Start by selecting a hosting package from our website that best matches your needs, then enter your existing domain name into the domain checker. At this point, you will be informed that your domain already exists; simply select ‘transfer’ and then enter the authentication code you received from your former provider. Make sure you have created backups of all your site’s files, plus any databases or email accounts with your former domain provider before you initiate the transfer, as this data will not transfer automatically with the domain. Also, you should copy your previous DNS settings and subdomains with that domain. There’s no rush- as an existing Techevolution customer you can easily transfer your domain from another provider at any time.
Making a good first impression is paramount for anyone with an online presence, especially for business owners. Give your communications strategy some polish by attaching a personalized email address to your domain name. For example, if your domain name is mycompany.com, you can have a customized email address such as email@example.com. This is a great way of creating a unified brand for your website. Set your domain and email address apart from other generic webhosting addresses, such as firstname.lastname@example.org, which can appear unprofessional to important recipients. You can set up your Techevolution email address in just a few a clicks. Visit the Techevolution Billing portal and select ‘create new email user’; you can now choose between the complimentary email account included in your domain’s hosting package, or upgrade to enjoy the expanded features of our powerful Techevolution Mail Business accounts.
There’s no need to feel overwhelmed by the terminology associated with your domain name registration at Techevolution. Anyone can master our web building tools and learn a few new terms along the way. Let’s start with the building blocks of your new domain — your site’s address. A web address has three components that are easy to identify; as an example, the three components of www.order.techevolution.com include: a subdomain, a second level domain, and top-level domain (TLD), in that order. So ‘order’ is our subdomain; ‘techevolution’ is our second level domain; and ‘.com’ is our TLD. You have a lot of flexibility when it comes to choosing domain names and TLDs — what comes before and after the last period in a web address. As you’ll discover below, you have the chance to create memorable websites when you use the domain name search with Tecchevolution.
Whatever your preference, you can choose from a variety of top-level domain endings when you register a domain name with Techevolution. Choosing the right domain ending depends on a variety of factors, including what information you want to highlight to visitors. Generic endings for domains include .com, .org, .net, .info, .web and so on — with .com being the most common. For certain domains, however, referring to a geographic location could be advantageous, so we offer you hundreds of two-letter geographic endings such as .us, .ca, or .mx. Zoom in on a specific location with .berlin, .nyc, .london or many other place names. While you complete your domain name registration, you may decide to point to your site’s topic or a specific industry, such as .photography, .hotel, or .software. Techevolution gives you all the tools to customize your domain name according to your needs from the widest possible range of endings.
