Ok. This guide teaches you how to get a free domain name and set up a website for MapleStory. Although you can use other CMS, you still can read at the CREATING A FREE DOMAIN section to get your free domain..
Part 1 : Get a domain name!!
1)Check your domain name you want by going HERE
.Type inside the box and click the CHECK
button.. As shown below..
2)If its not available, try again and get one available for FREE one..
3) You will probably see this picture when u get an available domain.
4)Thus click the Continue to registration
5)Here where come to a page where you need to register an account for your domain. Click the Create an account now as shown below.
6)Put all ur relevant information such as name, email address etc in this page.
7)Tick The "I accept the Terms of Service"
below the page and press "Create an account now"
8)After u press the button, it will show this page which tells you that the domain is successful registered to you! as shown in this page. Thus click the "Set UP"
9)Press the setup button
again located here..
10) Done for registering the domain.
Part 2 : Set Up The Domain..*** RECOMENDED ***
1)You got 3 choices where there is NAME SERVER
, ZONE RECORDS
, and URL FOWARDING
2)Here i will explain only ZONE RECORDS and URL FOWARDING.(name server is too slow. it needs 1 day to setup)
This part i will explain the ZONE RECORDS choice.
-ZONE RECORDS can directly point the domain name to your IP address. So when u host a webserver(maplestory cms) ur page for the website is (HTTP://your
wan IP) here. So this domain can directly point to your (WAN IP).
Lets say u choose to use zone records, press the button which i circled in red.
Then you will get this.. Here is some info u will need to put there to set up your domain.
**NOTE: GET UR IP ADDRESS HERE IF YOU DONO HOW TO!!
SO FOLLOW WHAT THIS PICTURE SHOWS..
LAST, Press the SETUP
And there you go, its done..
** IF YOU HAVE A DYNAMIC IP ADDRESS, YOU MUST CHANGE FROM TIME TO TIME WHEN U SWITCH OFF UR MODEM/IP CHANGED, IF YOU HAVE A STATIC ADDRESS, THEN YOU CAN LEAVE IT THERE**
Part 3 : URL FOWARDING
This is a URL FORWARDING service which help you to point your domain to a longer name domain name..
For example, you registered a "xxxxxxxxMS.no-ip.org", then you can forward the domain xxxxxxms.co.cc to your xxxxxxxMS.no-ip.org
I personally recommend the ZONE Records.
Here insert ur information as shown below..
After that press SetUP and you get ur domain forward to ur old domain.. =)
PS: You can read other tutorial regarding your Registration Page or CMS.( i will write one more tutorial regarding CYPE if i got time) Thanks guys..
