Where is my web hosting, email service and domain name?

They can all be in different places…usually when you purchase your domain name, you will be offered email services as well as web hosting services – plus a slew of other services and products that can leave you dizzy with confusion. So…when a client calls me and asks me to decipher an email from GoDaddy or HostGator or ClickHost, all web service providers of domains, emails and hosting – I start with looking at the Whois (who is) info. 1. http://www.networksolutions.com/whois

 Registered through: GoDaddy.com, LLC (http://www.godaddy.com) Domain Name: NOTESFROMKRIS.COM Created on: 07-Nov-07 Expires on: 31-Jan-13 Last Updated on: 23-Aug-11

Looks like my domain has been around since 2007 – good for SEO. It doesn’t expire until Jan of 2013 (not good – need to go back to GoDaddy and ensure that this is indeed on auto-renew). It also shows that I purchased the Domain through GoDaddy. Further review of the Whois record shows me who controls my domain address book*.

 Domain servers in listed order: NS1.NOTESFROMKRIS.COM NS2.NOTESFROMKRIS.COM

*also called Domain Name Server (DNS) records. This area controls what points where. For example, this address book

or name server book can be set up to point my mail to – say, for example – Google Mail and my website can be stored at – say, for example – HostGator. 2. Now we need to dig deeper into finding out where eMail is hosted, I go to: http://www.zoneedit.com/lookup.html Here, I select the Mail Server (MX = Mail Exchange – not to be confused with Microsoft Exchange server) – and I find out that email is hosted at mail.notesfromkris.com – so it seems to be hosted in the same area as the Name Server (DNS) records.

Financial Investment Services


Financial Investment for Retirement in Beverly, MA

Project Request

montserrat advisory services massachusettsMontserrat (an area in Beverly, MA) is the home of Montserrat Advisory Services, LLC; specializing in asset allocation, security diversification, time based diversification and category diversification.  These are all words which may sound foreign to most of us, but Thomas J. Costantini is a man of many educational words.  He wanted his website to inform his audience of what’s available to you and what forms of investing will benefit your lifestyle now and into the future. Most investors are wary of giving away too much information – not Tom – he wants to share his years of experience before you even call him.  He offers various white papers that you can download for free (for your email address) on Bear Markets – How to Survive and Prosper to How the Government is Stealing your Money and he changes these up every now and then to keep his content fresh.

He wanted an informative, giving site, that keeps him in touch with his current and potential audience.


Tom was referred to me by a WordPress website developer I met at a WordCamp conference – so remember, even if you are going for training, always be aware of networking opportunities!

In the creation of this website, I found Tom to be an extremely detailed person with whom I could let my inner ADHD loose – if there was a period or an apostrophe out of place, we both caught it.  We held monthly, sometimes weekly reviews of the content and images selected to make sure the whole website accurately represented, Tom, his business and his community.  Next, we will be adding a blog component which his clients can sign up to receive in their inbox.

Searchable Business Listings


 Atlanta / Jacksonville / Raleigh Businesses for Sale

Project Request

walden-businesses-homepageWalden Businesses wanted a functional, up-to-date website.*  The site was formerly managed in Dreamweaver on their local machine and then uploaded to their website server.  The major disadvantage was the lack of structure and consistency.  You know what it’s like, eventually a website can get cluttered and unorganized (kind of like that linen closet in your bathroom).  It was time to look at it from a fresh perspective.

The main goal was to provide a searchable database of business listings for sale in Atlanta, Raleigh, Jacksonville and Costa Rica (adding one more soon). Not only that, but it had to be easy for the business buyer to sort by price and search by keyword or industry.


The final product was a few steps up from the 125 page (“rabbit holes”) website they had before.  We kept the same black and gold look; incorporated some graphical elements from their marketing materials and trained their staff to keep the following items up to date:  page text and graphics, business listings, principal bios.  As we enter the 3rd month of live status, Notes From Kris, Inc. is still working on the site and Walden Businesses hones their online business model and strategy to bring in new clients and to keep the current clients happy and productive on their website, thereby freeing them up to carry out business valuations and qualifying buyers.
