If you are some of the guys who dont want to waste you money in building your website, Here is elaborated guide to set up your free domain and email.
A guide to set up http://mydomain.com.np and a email firstname.lastname@example.org
First you need to register yourdomain.com.np at http://www.mos.com.np.
but before doing that you should do the following:
[Notes: If the website is personal you need to use your name in the domain, otherwise it will be rejected. A sample coverletter for you has been written below the article. You need to submit it with your details at the Mecentile Building, Durbarmarg.]
Go to http://www.freehostia.com/
registeran account for a free username and password
In the Hosted Domains add your domain that you registerd in the mos.com.np site ie mydomain.com.np
Now go to mos.com.np
Register for a domain. Fill the form. In the nameserver field of the form copy the following values
dns1.freehostia.com / IP: 184.108.40.206
dns2.freehostia.com / IP: 220.127.116.11
[note: The ip can be obtained by Run>Cmd>Ping dns1.freehostia.com]
Now you need to submit the necesary document to Mercentile office (at Durbarmarg) and wait until the domain gets activated.
In the mean time we will set up our new site and email addreess.
Freehostia provides free incoming email but you cannot send email from here so we will use gmain instead.
Register for google apps (free) with your mydomain.com.np
Use Manage Domain>Service settings and activate the Email
In Setting>Email of google apps change URL of web address to http://mail.mydomain.com.np
Now goto freehostia.com
In custom DNS records change MX of mydomain.com.np value to ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM (MX stands for mail exchange)
Register new subdomain named mail.mydomain.com from subdomain manager
Again go to ustom DNS records andchange ip number of A record of mail.mydomain.com.np to ghs.google.com
Thats all. You have also set up the email address for youself.
It will take 2-3 days to update all the server in the planet for your email and domains
Set up a content management system for your site
Go to freehostia.com
Install Joomla 1.5 listed in Web tools> Elephat free scripts
During the process you will be asked to set up a database. Make a database. Remember the password you provided.
Now wait and wait and wait
RUN>CMD>Ping mydomain.com.np each day until you get the reply.
visit http://mydomain.com.np to see your website
visit http://mydomain.com.np/administrator to adminster the content of your site (if you have installed joomla 1.5)
visit http://mail.mydomain.com.np to access your email email@example.com (with all cool gmail features)
