Email Features

Email Security
    You may POP your email off the web server using an encrypted connection. Just point your incoming/POP3 server to the secure server used for your web site. Then turn on the MS Outlook Express setting under Tools / Accounts / (double click the account) / Advanced:

    This server requires a secure connection (SSL)

    If you don't know which secure server you are using, please email us and we will return the information.

    When using the secure server as your incoming POP3 mail server, please be sure you to use your domain name as part of the incoming mail server account name (also called POP username). For instance, if you used mary as the account name or POP username and your domain is abc.com, you would now use mary@abc.com as the account name or POP username.

    Please do not use the secure (SSL) setting for your outgoing SMTP server. It will not work. Your outgoing SMTP server should be the mail server assigned to you by your ISP. If you are using Zipcon for your dial-up connection, it is mail.zipcon.net.

    Using SSL is highly recommended if you are retrieving private information like credit card numbers and having them deposited into your local mailbox. Since the local mailbox is actually on the web server, the information never has to leave the server in an unencrypted format.

Adding Real Email Accounts (mailboxes)
    Real email accounts that can be popped from the server can be set up by going to http://www.YOURDOMAIN.com/zipmail/ and adding the account. .

Requesting a new Web Hosting Account
    Please fill out this form. We will then contact you and do the preliminary set up, including registration of your domain name. The domain and web hosting account will generally be up and running in 24 hours. Before the domain is registered, you may be able to access the page by using the IP address (http://209.221.136.xx), this will not work correctly with Frontpage hosted domains. Once the domain has completed registration, the process is complete.

Transfering an Existing Domain to Zipcon
    Transferring a domain from another server to Zipcon is very easy. First, please fill out this form. We will then contact you and set up your web site. Once the site is set up, you can transfer the contents of the current site to the Zipcon web server. At that point we will have two duplicate copies of the webpage, and can go ahead with the domain name transfer.

    The domain transfer requires that one of the current contacts, as seen at the whois server, respond to a message from the Network Solutions with an acknowledgement. When we send off a message to the Network Solutions that your domain will now be hosted at Zipcon, Network Solutions will send mail to the administrative and technical contacts and wait for a response. Please be sure that a positive response will be made from at least one of the contacts for your domain name. If your domain is registered with another registrar, such as Register.com or Dotster.com, you should have a username and password that can be used to change the DNS servers to Zipcon.

    If you have any difficulties transfering the domain, it may be necessary to directly contact the Network Solutions. To do so, please go to this link and fill out the necessary form. Please contact us if you have any other questions or problems.

    Once the domain is transferred to our DNS servers, we are done!

The Zipcon Domain Name Servers for Your Domain Name (DNS)
    The correct Zipcon DNS servers to use, if you are updating your domain name yourself, are as follows:

    Name: ns1.zipcon.net
    IP Address: 209.221.136.14


    Name: ns2.zipcon.net
    IP Address: 209.221.136.15
