Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What value does an A record point to?

    • A.

      An IP address

    • B.

      An email address

    • C.

      Our XSites Network

    • D.

      42

    Correct Answer
    A. An IP address
    Explanation
    An A record in DNS (Domain Name System) is used to map a domain name to an IP address. Therefore, the correct answer is that an A record points to an IP address. This mapping allows users to access a website or other online resources using a domain name instead of typing in the IP address directly.

  • 3. 

    What does it mean to "park" a domain?

    • A.

      Parking a domain means associating that domain name with the XSite's IP address.

    • B.

      Parking a domain is pointing the A and CNAME records at each other so that the page doesn't come up.

    • C.

      Parking a domain means to release it from being owned by a la mode to being owner by the original registrar.

    • D.

      Parking a domain means to no longer have the domain pointed to the XSite.

  • 4. 

    What must be true before we can edit the DNS settings for a domain?

    • A.

      The name servers must be pointed to us.

    • B.

      We must be the technical contact.

    • C.

      ENOM must be the registrar for the domain.

    • D.

      There are no DNS settings that we can't change.

    Correct Answer
    A. The name servers must be pointed to us.
    Explanation
    Before we can edit the DNS settings for a domain, it must be ensured that the name servers are pointed to us. This means that the domain's DNS records must be configured to use our name servers for DNS resolution. This is necessary because without the domain pointing to our name servers, we do not have control over the DNS settings and cannot make any changes to them.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    If a customer is going to point four domains to their XSite, how many of those domains can be used with Certmail?

    • A.

      1

    • B.

      All of them

    • C.

      None of them

    • D.

      As many of them as they buy Certmail for

    Correct Answer
    A. 1
    Explanation
    Only one of the four domains can be used with Certmail. The question states that the customer is going to point four domains to their XSite, but it does not mention anything about purchasing multiple Certmail services. Therefore, it can be inferred that only one Certmail service can be used for one domain.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    What do MX records control?

    • A.

      What servers are used to handle email for the domain.

    • B.

      Where browsers have to go to load the public side of their XSite.

    • C.

      The IP address of the registrar's site.

    Correct Answer
    A. What servers are used to handle email for the domain.
    Explanation
    MX records control what servers are used to handle email for the domain. MX stands for Mail Exchanger, and these records specify the mail servers responsible for accepting incoming email messages on behalf of the domain. When someone sends an email to a domain, the MX records direct the email to the designated mail server where it can be processed and delivered to the recipient's inbox. By configuring the MX records, domain owners can control the email routing and ensure that emails are properly handled by the designated servers.

    C. Is simpler than asking people to go to an IP address like 199.181.132.250
    Explanation
    Having your own domain allows for branded email, which means that you can have personalized email addresses like [email protected]. This adds a professional touch to your communication and helps establish your brand identity. Additionally, having your own domain makes it easier for people to find your business on the internet. Instead of relying on generic domain names or IP addresses, having a unique domain name makes it more memorable and accessible. Lastly, having a domain is simpler than asking people to go to an IP address like 199.181.132.250, as domain names are easier to remember and type into a web browser.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    If the customer notices it quickly enough, we can correct a misspelling on a domain that they register.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that if a customer notices a misspelling on a domain they have registered, it can be corrected. However, this is not true. Once a domain is registered, it cannot be edited or corrected. The customer would need to register a new domain with the correct spelling instead.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Which method for pointing a domain at the XSite allows for custom email records?

    • A.

      "The easy way"

    • B.

      "The hard way"

    Correct Answer
    B. "The hard way"
    Explanation
    "The hard way" method for pointing a domain at the XSite allows for custom email records. This means that by using the hard way, users have more control and flexibility in setting up their email records for the domain. They can customize and configure the email records according to their specific needs, such as setting up custom email addresses or integrating with third-party email services. This method may involve more technical steps and configuration compared to the easy way, but it provides the ability to have a more tailored email setup for the domain.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    When a customer associates a domain through the XSite and does everything correctly on the registrar's end, they then have to email domains to finalize the association.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because when a customer associates a domain through the XSite and does everything correctly on the registrar's end, they do not have to email domains to finalize the association. The association process is likely to be completed automatically or through other means, without the need for an email.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    A domain can be pointed directly to a page on the XSite that is not the Home page.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    This statement is true because a domain can be configured to point directly to any specific page on a website, not just the home page. This means that when someone types in the domain name in their browser, they will be directed to the specified page instead of the default home page. This is useful in cases where a specific page is more relevant or important for visitors to land on, rather than the home page.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    How long does it take before you see that a site is successfully pointed at an XSite?

    • C.

      3 days

    • D.

      Anywhere between a couple hours and three days.

    Correct Answer
    D. Anywhere between a couple hours and three days.
    Explanation
    The time it takes before you see that a site is successfully pointed at an XSite can vary and is not fixed. It can take anywhere between a couple of hours to three days for the changes to propagate and for the site to be successfully pointed.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    When email records are changed for a domain, Outlook on the customer's computer may need to have settings changed so that email is pulled and pushed successfully.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
