Starting in 2016, all domains registered through (or transferred to) TSC for hosting are set for automatic domain renewal. Domains previously registered with TSC before this time will be placed on automatic domain renewal at their next renewal date.
TSC will attempt to bill you 30 days in advance of your actual registrar renewal date. In the event that you are transferring your hosting or domain, this will give you time to cancel and notify us before you are billed. Once the registrar bills us, we will impose the charge.
Domains registered with TSC are required to have their domain name servers set to the TSC hosting name servers. This allows us to provide the most effective support possible. Domains that are parked, or set as forwards, may be set up to do so from an existing paid hosting package. TSC will no longer register domains that are not attached to a hosting package.
TSC uses the following two name servers for hosting resources:
DNS is configured from within your cPanel. Once your account it setup, you and your website developer will be responsible for making any needed DNS changes to your account.
If your domain registration is elsewhere (godaddy.com, registrar.com, etc.), please ask your registrar to point your domain to our name servers. Once you do, your site will be visible on our servers in the next 24-48 hrs.
Once DNS is configured and propagated, the following locations will be available for your access. Please remove "yourdomain" and replace it with your actual domain name to reach the site.
www.yourdomain - your web site
ftp.yourdomain - for use with FTP (File Transfer)
