How can I register non U.S. domain names (.uk, .se, .ca, etc)?
UPOINT requires non U.S. domain registration to be completed by the owner of the domain. Please contact our technical support staff for information that you will need when registering.

How long does it take for the world to access my domain name?
We, of course, will setup your domain name instantly. However, it truly depends on ALL networks and ISPs of the world to update their servers and lookup your new domain name. Some popular dial-up ISPs (i.e. Earthlink, Slip.Net, Sprynet, Grid.Net) take less than 6 hours to update their servers, while others will take more than 3 days. So if you are still using a dial-up connection to the Internet, make sure you have a reliable ISP that promptly updates its DNS servers, so you can access yourdomain.com right away.

How do I transfer an existing domain to your server?

Usually you can do it yourself at your domain registrar's website. What you have to do is simply change your Primary and Secondary nameservers info. Please note that you do not need to transfer the registrar. Please contact us if you want us to do it for you.

Primary nameserver: ns1.updinetwork.com (75.125.242.114)
Secondary nameserver:ns2.updinetwork.com (75.125.242.115)
