Domains: Presentation

PlanetHoster being an ICANN accredited registrar and as such offering all the existing extensions for domain names, the customer area is equipped with a simple and efficient management platform. It is divided into two distinct interfaces:

  1. The Domains interface, which gives access to an overview of domains and that also allows you to manage several at once.
  2. The Domain Management interface, which provides access to multiple features specific to a given domain, such as editing nameservers, defining WHOIS information, enabling or disabling locking, etc.

In this article, we will give a high-level overview of these interfaces, with links to articles that provide detailed information.

Note: For advanced users and resellers, an API is available: https://apidoc.planethoster.com/

Note: The PlanetHoster Glossary contains explanations on multiple topics and can be consulted to clarify certain terms.

Note: “V2” means “Version 2”.

Overview of the Domains Interface

PlanetHoster has adopted a user-friendly interface to help you get an overview of your domains. 

The interface allows you to see, for each of your domains at PlanetHoster, the date of the next invoice, its status (active, canceled, pending or suspended), ID protection (enabled or not) and locking (enabled or not). The interface also allows you to manage multiple domains at once. Finally, with a single click, it is possible to access the details of a specific domain, as we will see later.

To open the interface :

  1. Go to MY SERVICES > Domains.
  1. The domains are displayed on the right (clear the cache or log in again if you have trouble opening the interface):
  1. Note the presence of the Domains command in the left panel, which also gives access to this interface.

The Actions drop-down list allows you to process several domains at once, whether to renew them, lock them, modify the name servers or even modify the WHOIS information of the contacts:

The article Domains explains this view in detail.
