Telstra does not do personal Domains for their millions of individual customers, even though their IT Partner flogs them.
So; Telstra outsource Melbourne IT to do their domain/web stuff.
Melbourne IT flog individual domains.
Some peeps (like me) have no idea what to do with our brand new shiney Domain Names.
Some peeps have no idea that we have to buy a web package for the usual $millions to use them.
MelbourneIT don’t have any idea that some peeps don’t know that, so they talk as if you have already bought a web hosting package, and add to the national mental illness figures by never mentioning that simple fact.
You apparently can’t point your Domain Name to your own Servers.
You apparently have to run your Domain Name via external Servers.
Benhelps: CloudFlare info was CRUCIAL, thank you VERY much.
Free account with Cloudflare > immediate exploding understanding and clarification of Domains, Name Servers, C-Name and other ‘code’ stuff, etc.
So thanks to ALL the kind people who helped me figure this individual Domain stuff out.
I still haven’t got it working yet. Still trying to figure out what to put in all the boxes, but I get the odd spark and I have definite signs that I’m getting there. They’ve got plenty of online and English speaking Techs who actually love helping simpletons like me.
CloudFlare’s Ethical and Open Source paradigms, totally brill Domain security, and their free trial accounts and Support to practice and learn with, are perfect for Telstra’s unwanted great unwashed masses, who don’t want to waste huge monies on unwanted and useless systems.
