New Web Site Launched 14 October 2001
We are pleased to announce the launch of our new interactive web site.
New features include:

  • Better registration process.
  • Domain, Basic Relay, and Domain Relay customers have immediate access to their accounts thanks to our new automated registration process. Free customers have always had immediate access to their accounts.
  • Ability to Edit, Add, Delete DNS records via our new interactive web based interface.
  • Customers can automatically add domains to their account from our web based interface, New domains are available immediately
  • HTTP Relay services are 100% automated. Domain customers can now select DNS records to be relayed. This functionality allows Domain Relay customers to have a mixture of relayed DNS records and regular DNS records.
  • Linux and Macintosh users can now manage all aspects of their domains via Netscape v 6.0 and higher. In the past we only offered a windows based application to manage DNS records.

Version 1.6 Release: 23 July 2001
We are excited to announce the release of version 1.6. With this new version we have added many new features that you the customer requested.

  • Automatic off-line redirection for basic customers. This function allows basic customers the ability to redirect web traffic to an off-line web page message should they choose to go off-line.
  • Ability for both domain and basic customers to save there Login information, this function gives you the ability to place a short cut in your startup group and have the application launch and and automatically  update your records without having to type in your username and password.
  • Domain customers now have the ability to preview all the active records on the DNS server, they can now edit or delete each one with a simple double-click of the record.
  • Ability for domain customers to log in from multiple computers and select the DNS records they want automatically updated to that computers IP address. This function is great because it allows you to have your DNS records updating automatically from multiple machines.
  • Basic customers now receive a warning message when they close out of the application that this action will remove there DNS record from our servers. There was some confusion with the basic customers when they closed out of the DNSApp they could no longer access their domain. In order for the dynamic updates to occur they have to leave the application running on the machine they want to act as their server.
  • Changed some of the error messages to a format that easily understandable, also included links to try and correct the problems they were having.
  • Domain customers can now crate Round Robin records: Round robin DNS is a method of managing server congestion by distributing connection loads across multiple servers (containing identical content). Round robin works on a rotating basis in that one server IP address is handed out, then moves to the back of the list; the next server IP address is handed out, then it moves to the end of the list; and so on, depending on the number of servers being used. This works in a looping fashion.

    Let's say a company has one domain name and three identical home pages residing on three servers with three different IP addresses. When one user accesses the home page it will be sent to the first IP address. The second user who accesses the home page will be sent to the next IP address, and the third user will be sent to the third IP address. In each case, once the IP address is given out, it goes to the end of the list. The fourth user, therefore, will be sent to the first IP address and so forth.

    Round robin is different than load balancing. Load balancing distributes connection loads across multiple servers, giving preference to those servers with the least amount of congestion. In round robin's case, server distribution remains on a rigid one IP address to one user rotating basis.

    As an example, let us assume that we at have three (3) web servers: their real names and IP addresses are: 1/3 of the web requests going to will be directed to

    First visitor to Goes to
    Second visitor to Goes to
    Third visitor to Goes to

We have only just begun, if you have a suggestion that you think will better the service please let us know.
