Setting up with, byethost, or any other website

If you tend to goof up, setting up as your DNS host can be a difficult task.
We sum up the basics you should follow to host your website's DNS on successfully.
What is
To say the least, it is a website which manages your website's DNS requirements.
It can act
as a Primary DNS or
as a Secondary/ Backup DNS or
as a Webhop/ URL forwarding service

Why should you use

Firstly follow this motto when maintaining a website.
DO NOT put all your eggs in one basket
which means
Do not use the same service provider to manage your Domain Name, Website Hosting and DNS
For example if you have bought your domain from GoDaddy, try hosting with a different service provider.

Point of the Post:
Let's learn with the help of an example.
1. Domain name bought from a registrar eg. GoDaddy
2. Hosted for free at a free hosting provider like or at a reseller of Byet like
3. DNS to be managed by
Before Migrating to

The site eg. has been hosted on
(I presume you have added as a add on domain on your free hosting account.)
The NameServers (NS) on GoDaddy have been changed to point to
After 24-48 hours of NS change, your website is working perfectly fine.

Why Migrate your DNS to and most hosting companies handle your DNS requirements quite nicely. Then why change? Because these sites are not specialists. And if your hosting goes down, so do your nameservers! If you switch your DNS to a third party like, you still have working Nameservers in case your hosting goes down! You can serve error pages or you can redirct traffic.

Migration to
To begin with Create a free account at & add your domain
1. Change the NS at Godaddy to
(if your provider gives you only two slots for NS go for & since at the tie of writing this article was down)
Go to your account & select
delete both entries present by default
add the following entries
Type: A
(This is for
Type: A

You might add

but we have found that websites work even without this setting.

What if my host is not
In that case you will have to find the A Record IP of the given host.You may ask your hosting provider for the A record value or search the Internet or do what is given below:
If your service provider provides you with a free subdomain address along with the hosting(many do) eg. or, then register a subdomain
Then Goto:
Lookup your subdomain address, eg or
Netcraft will give you the details of the website, including the IP.
Use this IP as the A record value
You may also use any other website hosted similarly and look it up on Netcraft to get the IP value.(Do not confuse this with the IP returned when you ping a name server, for eg. when you ping you get IP, but the IP returned by NetCraft which you will use as the A record value is
for different hosting providers like 110mb, A record value changes from Box to Box! you will have to get the specific A record value for your Box Number.

That's it!

CPU Overheating: Symptoms, Causes and Solutions

The most hit pages on this blog are the CPU Temperature Guides, so here is a comprehensive(work in progress) guide to everything(almost) related to CPU Overheating.

Symptoms of a Overheating CPU :

1. Random Crashes:
Your system may switch off or restart automatically while you are using it. And this may happen repeatedly. If the overheating problem is not severe enough, then your PC may only crash when you are running many CPU intensive applications or running a CPU intensive game. If your CPU temperature is very high, then the system may restart as it is booting up ending into a endless and dangerous loop.

2.Sluggish System:
An overheating CPU underperforms, result being a sluggish computing experience. The system may experience random lock-ups too.

Differential Diagnosis:
A PC may also crash due to RAM, Motherboard, Hard Disk & Power Supply Unit issues.

Causes of CPU Overheating:

1. Improper CPU + Heatsink installation:
If your system is new and you have overheating issues, or if you…
