To register a new Domain Name, go to http://www.yi.org/reg.pl. You will be prompted to enter the name of the domain you wish to register, and if it is available, you will be directed to the Service Selection screen.
If the domain is available, you will be given a chance to select how many years you would like to register for, as well as the type of registration;
In order to register a Domain Name as your online property, you must enter valid, current contact information when asked. It is absolutely essential that the name and mailing address are correct, and a valid EMail address/phone number is advised as well. You must enter information for the "Owner" contact; if you leave any of the other contacts blank, the Owner contact's information will be copied in for you.
DNS Servers are configured on the bottom of the Contact Information page.
If you signed up for Domain Registration and yi.org DNS, you will be asked to enter your Starting IP address here. Your Starting IP address should be the IP address of the computer that is going to serve your domain's web page, and it starts off set to the IP address of the computer you are connecting to yi.org from.
If you signed up for Domain Registration Only, you will be asked to enter your DNS server names here. These DNS servers must be registered with CoreNIC. If you want to use a brand new DNS server that has not yet been registered with CoreNIC, EMail yi.org support to have your DNS servers registered. (There is no additional fee for this service.)
This page will give you a chance to read over everything you've told yi.org about the Domain Name you want before you pay for it. Scroll through the page and read everything; if it all looks correct, click on the "Continue" button at the bottom of the page to be forwarded to PayPal to make your payment.
PayPal is a convienent system for making Credit Card and Bank Account-based payements online. However, not all countries are fully supported by PayPal. If you have a problem with PayPal and want to register your domain with yi.org, Email me and we can work out another way for you to pay.
If you already own a Domain Name and wish to transfer it's registration to yi.org, you can do so at http://www.yi.org/reg.pl?type=trans.
BEFORE YOU TRANSFER YOUR DOMAIN NAME, make sure that the domain isn't locked or otherwise restricted from transfer at your domain's current registrar. In order for a domain name to transfer successfully, it must not be "locked" at it's current registrar, it must be over 60 days old, and it must not be expired. If any of these conditions are not met, your attempt to transfer will most likely fail.
When you Transfer a Domain Name, you go through the exact same process as registering one. However, after that process is completed and payment is received, there are still a few steps that must be taken care of;
You only want to use this option if you already own the Domain you wish to use with yi.org Dynamic DNS, and that domain is not transferrable, or you do not want to transfer the registration, to yi.org.
You can sign up for DNS Hosting without transferring your registration to yi.org by going to http://www.yi.org/reg.pl?type=dns. You go through a similar, but shorter, process as registering a domain.
After payment, your domain should be instantly served in yi.org Dynamic DNS. However, before the rest of the world will be able to make use of this, you will have to contact your current registrar and have the DNS servers for your domain set to the following:
CONNUBIALIS.CRACKERJACK.NET (126.96.36.199)This will tell the world to contact yi.org's DNS servers for information about your domain.
To renew a domain name, click on it's expiry date in the Domains Tab of the Administration Section, or go to http://www.yi.org/reg.pl?type=renew and type in the name of the domain you wish to renew.
You will be asked to choose how many years you wish to renew for, then you will be forwarded to PayPal for payment.
