I received a bounced message for an email that I did not send, or I received a complaint from someone saying I sent a virus, but I didn’t send the email

Email messages can be forged. An email sender can simply change the “From:” field in their email program, or in more advanced cases, forge addresses through the SMTP protocol, inserting any email address in the “MAIL FROM:” section of the message.

What is the difference between DNS Transfer and Domain Registrar Transfer?

You can sign up for any of our services using a domain name that you already own. After successful order submission, we will set up your account instantly. In order to get your domain name to function with our hosting platform, you will need to perform a DNS Transfer.

DNS Transfer: You will simply need to update your domain’s name servers to point to our DNS. You should be able to accomplish this using the web interface provided by your domain registrar. Your current domain registrar will continue to manage your domain.

Please note, that ‘DNS Transfer’ is different than a ‘Domain Registrar Transfer’. A domain registrar transfer is when you transfer your domain from your current domain registrar to another domain registrar. For example, after a Domain Registrar Transfer, you would pay a different company for your domain renewal fees.
