  • Primary Server IP Address.
  • Secondary Server Hostname.
  • Secondary Server IP Address.

  • Additional Information (If you have any supplementary information that you wish to add to this request, please write it here).

Please keep in mind that all field above you may not be able to change when your registration completed within six months. So if we provide incorrect information that your domain will point to or wrong hosting that domain point to the server. You will not be able to correct them within six months.
