1. How long does it take for my domain to be active?

Registration approval time for gTLDS are usually within 48 hours. But for ccTLDs, it could vary from 3 days to 1 month depending on the Network Information Centre (NIC) of the ccTLDs. After that .com, .net and .org and other ccTLDs (country code Top Level Domains) - for example, .ro, .dk, .sh - domain names registered through Adicio may take up to 72 hours until they are accessible on the Internet after a successful registration. This is considered normal Internet propagation time.

 

2. Why does my domain show available, even after getting a confirmation mail from you saying I am the owner?


WHOIS updates worldwide are usually updated twice a day, but sometimes it takes two or three days. Until the database is updated, your domain will show as available. However in actual fact it has been registered, and cannot be registered by another person.

 

3. Can I create sub domains with your services (Webforwarding), e.g. help.mydomain.com?

Adicio allows you to use Web Alias and Web Forwarding on subdomains. You might for an example want to forward:
music.mysite.com to http://members.host.com/user/music.html and
games.mysite.com to http://members.host.com/user/games.html. Note: Web and Email Forwarding services are only applicable for customers who use our default nameservers.

4. How do I setup my Emailforwarding?


Importantly you must have a REAL email account, i.e. your ISP email account or an Internet email account (hotmail). Next log into your account, and click on Mail Settings. You may now insert any name/words in to the blank field, when that is done enter your REAL email account that the mails are supposed to be sent to.

Adicio does not provide any email hosting services. All we do is to provide a virtual email forwarding system.
