Frequently Asked Questions

How do I register a domain on TopDog?

To register a new domain, simply search for the desired name and extension, in the “register a new domain” search bar that is found either on the Home Dashboard or on the sub menu New Domain. 

This search field will return the name entered and some alternatives, if the requested domain and extension is not available. 

If it is available, TopDog will automatically add it to your cart for easy checkout.

Where does my domain show on TopDog?

All domains can be found either by selecting “My Domains” in the menu, or by clicking on the “Domains” tile on the HOME screen. There is easy filtering for all domains, as well as a quick view of all domains that are due to expire soon.

I just registered a domain name. How do I turn this into a working website?

For a domain name to resolve on the Internet, you will need to secure hosting services for the domain. In general terms, you’ll need to obtain a static (fixed) IP address for your computer from your ISP (although there are work-arounds for dynamically-assigned IP addresses). You’ll need to arrange for two external computers acting as name servers to point your domain at your IP address. Your registrar can then point your domain at the two name servers which have been configured with your information. TopDog make this easy by enabling a url spin, simply copy the url of the page you would like to point to into the spin filed, found in the My Domain submenu, and connect the new domain name with your site. Note that this can also be used for blogs, facebook pages, google sites or other social media links.

How do I spin my domain to a url?

Topdog offers a unique feature that allows you to instantly spin your domain to a URL of your choice. Under the My Domains sub menu, select the domain your wish to redirect then navigate to Spin. Enter (best to copy / paste) the URL of the website you wish your domain to redirect to in the space provided. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DqkpP8tOeO4

How do I search the availability of domains?

This can be done either from the HOME screen dashboard, type the desired domain and extension and click “GO” or enter, this will return with the availability of the domain, and provide other alternative options to register. This can also be done through the “New Domains” sub menu.

Where do I see the transactions that have passed through my account?

In the submenu Payments, all transactions such as registrations and renewals will be listed, with the associated domain, date of transaction and amount.
