A CSR (Certificate Signing Request) is a small, base64 encoded text file containing information about the organization and the domain you wish to secure. It is required for the activation of a digital SSL certificate and, as a rule, is generated on the server where the certificate is to be installed. A CSR is submitted to the Certificate Authority and used to generate the certificate.
When you enable WhoisGuard service for a domain, it puts WhoisGuard protected information to the public instead of your contact details to protect you from potential spam and even identity theft.
Your personal email address will be replaced with a unique WhoisGuard one (e.g., [email protected]), and every email sent to this WhoisGuard email address will be forwarded to an email address of yours.
To enhance online presence privacy, you also have an option to schedule the change of your WhoisGuard email address every few days. This should provide you with additional protection from spam as mail harvested from Whois becomes invalid in a few days.
To set up a URL redirect, follow these steps:
Let's say you need to forward your www.yourdomain.tld to https://someurl.tld. In this case the host to be putted to the Host field would be "www"
You can also use URL Redirect to forward users to a specific page at the destination URL and pass values via query strings to the destination.
In order to set up Email Forwarding for your domain, please do the following:
NOTE: The SPF record shown in the screenshot above is needed for free email forwarding to function, thus, it cannot be deleted.
Once MX records are set, you need to create your forwarding email addresses.
Please allow about 2 hours for newly created mailboxes to be completely set up on the forwarding mail server. After your settings have been activated, you will be able to test your mail service.
