Whois Privacy Protection with Tugoats
As per ICANN regulations, the WHOIS info must be freely available as well as entirely correct. Which means you must write down your individual or organization data on the web and re–confirm that it is accessible for every person to check. When using the WHOIS Privacy Protection service made available from Tugoats, you have the option to disguise your data through the use of our data instead.
One of the benefits would be that all of the domain–related e–mails (transfer requests, EPP codes, etcetera) can continue to reach you, whilst not needed messages can be filtered out.
Whois Privacy Protection–eligible TLDs
We are not able to provide Whois Privacy Protection for all domain names. It is a constraint enforced by the organization in control of managing the every given TLD at the highest level. This is the reason no more but a few domains are now Whois Privacy Protection–eligible:
The supported TLDs are: .com, .net, .org, .info, .biz, .co, .co.za, .me, .tv & .cc.
Get SSL certificates from your CP
An SSL certificate enciphers the connection between your clients and your e–store and tells everyone that your store is a risk–free place to order from. You’d normally obtain an SSL certificate from a 3rd–party distributor. However, at Tugoats, you can get one directly from your Control Panel.
Just visit the SSL Certificates section and choose whether you want a traditional SSL certificate or a wildcard SSL certificate. After that request an activation and we’ll perform everything else for you momentarily.
Specify Custom DNS Records
Modify different types of DNS records
We, at Tugoats, give you total control over your domains’ DNS resource records. Via the Custom DNS section of the Domain Manager, you’ll be able to modify different types of DNS records for a selected domain. For instance, A, AAAA, MX, NS, SRV, CNAME and TXT records. To set a new DNS record, simply pick a domain and fill in the new value in the respective record field. To modify the DNS resource record – click on ’Modify’; to retrieve the original value – click ’Revert’.
With the GeoIP location tool, also available in the Custom DNS section, you will be able to show a particular language version of your website to visitors from a certain geographic area.
Step up to a cloud hosting plan immediately
You can easily upgrade the domain administration account that you have with Tugoats to any of our cloud hosting plans. Thus, you will be able to effortlessly administer both your domain names and web sites from one single location.

Multiple Domain Name Management
Multiple domain name administration done right
Our Domain Manager will grant you complete control over multiple domain names. Simply mark the domain names whose settings you need to edit and select the action that you want to execute. You will be able to renew the selected domain names, to modify their WHOIS info and even to modify their nameservers at once.

Prevent your domain from being relocated
With the Registrar Lock option turned on, you can be certain that your domain name is defended against online robbery. Anybody who tries an unsolicited domain transfer will be immediately blocked and the domain transfer request – turned down.
If, at some point, you choose to transfer your domain to some other registrar, you’ll be able to unlock it with one click. You will find the locking/unlocking functionality in the Domain Manager section of your Control Panel.
GeoIP Redirection Tool
Promptly build location–based redirects
Using the GeoIP location tool integrated into the Domain Manager, you will be able to point a specific language version of your website to a given geographic market. It sports a simple point–and–click interface where you do not have to enter any code. You just have to fill in the country of origin of your prospective site visitors plus the URL that you’d like to load for those visitors.
For instance, if you’ve got a German version of your site at de.your–site.com, you ought to type it in the URL field and choose Germany as a target market. This way, when a visitor from Germany goes to your website, they’ll see de.your–site.com rather than your–site.com.
One–stop domain management solution
The Domain Manager is a fundamental part of our web hosting Control Panel and offers all the features that you need to administer your domains. It boasts a simple–to–use interface through which you can edit DNS settings, update WHOIS details, lock your domain name or set up sub–domains with a single click.
Via the Domain Manager tool you can also buy more services such as Whois Privacy Protection and Secure Sockets Layer certificates.
Create a wildcard domain with a mouse click
With the aid of the Wildcard DNS feature, you’ll be able to make all your sub–domains redirect to the main page of your web site. For example, if someone types in smth.domain.com or any.domain.com, they will see http://domain.com/.
You may need the Wildcard DNS feature for a multisite application such as Joomla™ Multi–Site or WordPress.
To activate a wildcard domain name, proceed to the Domain Manager section of your Control Panel and then press the Add Host button located on the right. At the bottom of the options list, you will see the Wildcard Domain tick box.
