When your computer is connected to the internet, you send out all sorts of requests for information to other computers (servers). In order for information to be sent back to you, your computer needs to somehow identify itself on the internet. This is done with an IP Address (Internet Protocol Address). An IP address is like your telephone number on the internet.

This IP address must somehow be assigned to your computer. When you dial into Celticweb your IP address is dynamically assigned by our servers to your computer. This means that your IP address is different each time you connect.

Computers like to speak to each other in numbers rather than letters and names. We assign names to computers so that we don't have to remember all the numbers. So when your computer tries to connect to smtp.celticweb.com or www.sony.com, it needs a way to translate that name into a number. Your computer uses a service called DNS (Domain Name Service) to do this translation. So when your computer wants to connect to smtp.celticweb.com, it must first connect to a DNS server and ask it to translate smtp.celticweb.com into an IP number. The DNS server tells your computer that smtp.celticweb.com is equal to 204.193.152.67, and then your computer can go ahead and make that connection.
Your computer must have an IP address of a DNS server already entered into it's TCP/IP settings. There are many DNS servers. We give you the IPs of our DNS servers. We give you a primary DNS server and a secondary in case the primary is ever down.

If you are interested in moving/creating a domain-name to be hosted by Celticweb, below is the needed information for the InterNIC (or) Network-Solutions when registering/updating your domain-name(s):

  • Celticweb NIC-Handle:    RM5832


There is a possibility that sometimes these IP-addresses may change, to keep yourself up-to-date with Celticweb Network settings, check back with us from time to time.

 



On your PC or Mac you have a place where you can set your TCP/IP settings.

NOTE: Just a word about your Network Control Panel. This can be found in your Control panels on your Windows 95 or 98 system. We recommend that you have list as Network Components Installed:
