MapName.com Company Profile
to map a domain name means to setup the pointing or forwarding of your domain name to a certain server or web link
MapName.com is a private sector initiative to implement new ideas and provide best flexibility of the Domain Name System (DNS),
which allows Internet addresses (for example, web pages and email accounts) to be found by easy-to-remember or easy-to-search names,
instead of numbers or long web links (URL). MapName.com has created new extended version of DNS which allows mapping not only to numbers but also
to http (web) links and email addresses. Thus, it gives the ability to point your domain name to any place on the Internet such as the map of your office location, cell phone messaging center, chat program messaging center, discussion forum, secure web contact form, your home or office computer, family album, shopping place, free hosting place, etc.
So far, there is no any other registration service provider (RSP)
who offers the same DNS flexibility and protection as MapName.com does. MapName.com also provides tools to monitor and regulate Internet traffic in a real time.
Headquartered in California, MapName.com is a privately owned company with no credit obligations.
MapName.com runs on a unique combination of advanced hardware and software created by MapName.com Software engineers who were inspired by Sunny Hill Software back in 1988.
The speed you experience can be attributed to the efficiency of our algorithms, to constant traffic monitoring, and to our servers' clusters we have built to create the ultra fast domain mapping engine.
The heart of our software is Uni -forwarding, an extended version of the DNS
which allows to mix IP addresses with http links and mail server names with email addresses
(e.g., use domain forwarding along with the MX settings for your mail server,
or use email forwarding along with the IP addresses records for your web server).
MapName.com is the think tank that gives
the birth to new ideas and implement them on a daily basis.
