Do I Even Need to Go Through Certification?
« on: April 26, 2013, 05:41:51 PM »

I host my domain on Wordpress
I just wanted to use a third party to be able to redirect my dns/domain

I think I bit off more than I could chew.

I'm currently trying to get the 'Enthusiast' certification.
I followed the steps the best that I possibly could but I continue to receive the

'Could not grab the file via IPv6 HTTP' message.


Help   Step   Description   Data
   [1]   Completed: Code generated   vu3hfsvjft
   [2]   Completed: Valid FQDN entered   http://whoisathena.com /
   [3]   Completed: URL created:   http://whoisathena.com/vu3hfsvjft.txt


I made the txt file in the wwwroot and I just don't know.

Please help me out, I'm sure it's a simple fix (at least I hope so).

Have you even tried loading the url for the txt file? it gives a 404.

And no, you don't have to go through the certification process if you don't want to.  However, I'd recommend doing it because you get the opportunity to learn quite a bit.

What is supposed to load?

It was showing the IIS7 Image but it doesn't seem to be loading it anymore.
Should I start the process over?

IIRC, the link should load a text file with the random string given to you by the certification webpage.

I"d make sure IIS is running and your firewall isn't getting in the way

If you are just going to have someone do all the legwork and get stuff working, then yes: 'what is the point? Do I need to do this?' makes it irrelevant almost.

If you are doing this to get IRC/SMTP access, then the point is to learn some internet service hosting fundamentals. If you can get it working with IPv4, then it should be relatively similar/easy for IPv6. You could try reading some Microsoft Press books/documentation for IIS and go from there.

Thanks, as far as he.net are there any tutorials or any resources that are site-specific, that you may know (for changing a-records and cnames?)

Wonderful answer!
